Savannah, Georgia

After a thrilling day at Six Flags Over Georgia, we headed into Atlanta. The key attraction we chose to visit was the World of Coca Cola. The exhibits were quite informative with areas dedicated to production and bottling; the history of Coke, Coke's impact on pop culture and numerous video exhibits. At the end of the tour, there is a tasting room offering unlimited samples of approximately 80 Coca Cola products from around the world. Some of the offerings were delicious but others….not so much.

After the obligatory visit to the gift shop, we headed outside to find some food. When we had arrived in the morning I noticed a couple of food trucks setting up outside so I made a beeline for them. It turns out that the Breast Cancer charity run was being held that day and the park seemed to be a meeting point for the finishers. Luckily for us, Dad and I got our order in just before the masses arrived.

There was a pizza truck and salad truck but I made a beeline straight for the Korean taco truck (www. as I knew exactly what I wanted. I ordered one rib-eye beef and one chicken taco and Dad had the beef and pork. Although they were quite messy to eat, and certainly not pretty, they were very tasty. The tortillas were light and soft, the salad fresh and the marinades on the meat were the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

For dessert, we headed to the dessert pop (ice-block) stand and had a raspberry and a coconut one. They were refreshing but I prefer a Frosty-Fruit.

After lunch, it was time to pile back into the car and head towards Nashville.
