Give me a break! It’s almost summer in the USA

The smoky mountains. Asheville. Biltmore Estate and fine wine. I was surprised to find that North Carolina is on the Lonely Planet Top 10 places to visit in USA list. I had earlier ignorantly assumed it was hot, dry and boring.

Some of the above named wonders make North Carolina beautiful, but I did not get to see any of this.

Still, it was nice to have a break from our week of hard work, and so off I went to the beach with my ivory-skinned European colleagues.

If you can’t go to the beach right now, much less to the US, you can still have a break in other ways… Like having a Kit Kat.

Have a break, Have a Kit Kat

This post is inspired by Kit Kat – Different wrapping in the US, but same great taste!

Roadtrip to Wilmington, NC

It started with a race between Mustang VS Jeep – boys VS girls. The boys got lost and took too many stopbreaks – Jeep/girls won.

The weather was perfect but the water was quite cold. Still, I was very happy to catch some surf!

Made friends with the lifeguards, some were also magazine-cover male models. They were nice, but were too tanned and their teeth were too white. I asked them about sharks.

Thank you Wrightsville, for good weathered friends and good weather.

Surf, sun, sand and our rented 2011 Mustang – I had a perfect USA summer weekend.
