Exploring Indy part 1 – Another Adventure :-)

Exploring Indianapolis Indiana was Another Adventure 🙂 It was also #106 on my bucket list: Visit a metropolis.

I was blessed again to have a small opportunity to travel away from home the day after Christmas instead of shopping. My friend asked me if I would like to take a small 2 day trip to Indiana. I jumped on the opportunity.

I had never been to a big city and Indianapolis is gigantic compared to Knoxville, TN. At home, we have mountains and valleys, but not a big city. I used to think it was large because…well, it was all that I knew. Downtown Knoxville is actually rather small in my mind now. I used to think that the hour drive I made to work each morning equated to living in a large county…until I was in one! Knoxville, TN has its draw and special characteristics, so don’t take me wrong. I still very much love the Knoxville Valley from whence I came 🙂 I just love being able to explore other areas, cultures, ways of life, and thought processes of people from other areas.

I was told recently that I can be stubborn and need to be more open-minded. I kept my mind wide open on this trip…and my eyes 🙂

🙂 I took the boys to stay with one of their sisters for this first time trip. I wasn’t sure what city life may be like and thought I should see it first to decide if they’d be shell-shocked in it or not. So, off my friend and I went! We travelled through Kentucky to areas I had never seen before. I saw Louisville, KY from the Interstate and the Ohio River 🙂 Ohio River

When we drove by Louisville, KY I thought to myself, “Wow, this is Awesome.” When we got to Indiana, my Awesome turned into Fantastic enthusiasm! Here’s what I saw along the way that caught my eye: KY MCDonald's under construction
