From December 16 till the 26th we were in Tallahassee, house and pet sitting. We never really thought we would stay there, but we are glad we did.

The house we stayed in (not pictured in this blogpost) was lovely, the dogs were super sweet and the city did not feel like a city due to the number of trees everywhere. I can't remember ever seeing such a green city. Although the capital of Florida, Tallahassee has only 192.000 inhabitants and it is very widely spread so it has lots of space, large gardens, parks, forests and greenery.

Like a lot of Southern towns, it has some beautiful older buildings. And there were lots of hidden houses among trees. At a lot of streets there was no parking nor stopping so we couldn't take photos of everything but just driving through (while going from one thrift store to another :)) was lovely.

We took the doggies to this lovely park.

The water reservoir looked like some aliens had landed.

With Christmas lights everywhere, it had something magical.

A lot of streets and houses reminded me of fairytales.

As it is 40 minutes from the Ocean it is not touristic.

And it has lots of parks.

Still, no alligator seen got to love the Winter months!

We'll be thinking back fondly of our time here.

We're now in St. Augustine, a totally different town, very touristic and the house we are staying at is a 5-minute walk from the beach. We'll be here till Thursday and then slowly our trip back home starts, we can barely fit in the car with the amount of luggage!!


  1. Happy New Year
