Travel Tuesday Travel Blogger Link Up

 Happy Tuesday, Travel Lovers!

It's been a long time since the last Travel Tuesday Link Up, but I figured it was time to bring it back. However, I am revitalizing it a little bit to hopefully help highlight more great travel bloggers, encourage travel as things begin to open back up or help us travel through the screen. Instead of having my own full travel post as part of the blog, three main categories will change out every month. I will share our favorite small-town travel find. Then a post entered from the month before will be highlighted in each of the other categories. I may slowly add more categories over time, so let me know below if you have any recommendations. The rules for engagement are below, but for now, let's get started with month number one!


Small Town Find of the Month

Bristol, VA/TN

Bristol sits on the border of Tennessee and Virginia. We stayed at Sugar Hollow Park, a wonderful city campground in Bristol, Va, that is only $20 a night. We headed in to explore the town and were amazed by how wonderful it was. Did you know Bristol is actually the birthplace of country music? I had no clue. There are tons of wonderful murals paying homage to country music greats. You pass places on the historic registry, including spots owned by the Carter family (as in June Carter and Johnny Cash). The buildings date back to the 1800s, and many have been beautifully restored. Definitely plan to visit Blackbird Bakery (get the cinnamon roll) and Lumac Rooftop Bar at the Bristol Hotel (Honey Vanilla Old Fashioned is dreams). The whole town is very walkable, but these two spots are just two blocks from each other. There are also great breweries to visit, shops to peek into, and race-themed restaurants to enjoy.

RV Blogger Highlight of the Month

Though no one has entered a post yet since we are just starting out I figured I would share a few of my favorite posts! Typically it will be one featured post with a more in-depth description and image, but since nothing has been officially submitted I'm going with a multitude. 

21 Beautiful RV Kitchen Renos from Adventures with Tucknae- because I live vicariously through everyone who has redone their rigs. 
Fire Safety Tips from This Hidalgo Life- super important and reminds me I need to check our extinguisher!
Preventing Mold Under the RV Mattress from Couch Potato Camping- no mold, please!!

Travel Envy Highlight of the Month


Big Bend National Park from OutdoorishRV
I have been itching to visit Big Bend National Park. Megan, from OutdoorishRV, has been posting some stunning adventures in the park. Her recent post about hiking the Mesa de Anguila trail has me so ready to finally check this park off our list. According to Megan, Mesa de Anguila trail is less crowded than some of the more well known trails and that's definitely the kind we prefer.
