Shake, Shuffle and Roll: Memphis Edition, Day 2

Second post of a three-part road trip adventure

Read the first post here

To recap: Our game was simple. Draw a heart and we drive north, a diamond south, a club west and a spade east. The dice tell us how many miles to go and doubles would give us the option to double the miles. So a queen of hearts plus a pair of fours meant north, either 44 or 88 miles. We’d give ourselves one misdeal a day if we didn’t like the direction. Otherwise it was shake, shuffle, roll and go find something interesting.

Here’s where the cards and dice took us on day two…

Wild Horses and a Free Bird

If a former coffin showroom in a dry county of rural Alabama seems an odd place to lure the Rolling Stones, Cher, Aretha, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart and a dozen other major recording artists well, it certainly was. The most

Planning My First Trip Abroad

A collection of random tips and tricks for first-time international travelers… like me!

About six months ago, my boyfriend and I were invited to a July destination wedding in Italy by some of our closest friends. Initially, I was ecstatic to say the least. I told anyone that would listen that I was FINALLY going to travel outside of the United States! Then, as the weeks went on, my excitement turned to gut-wrenching anxiety. As someone who had barely traveled within the United States, I didn’t know the first thing about traveling abroad! Luckily, here at Miles Partnership, I am surrounded by expert traveling fanatics who have been more than willing to share some of their international traveling tips. So, I felt that I owed it to any other nervous first-timers to share what I have learned so far.

Passport: The Key to Becoming a World Traveler

Now I know what you’re thinking: Everyone knows that if you want to travel anywhere outside of the U.S., you have to have a passport. Before you judge me, know that I was well aware of this fact, BUT I was naively unaware of the numerous steps that had to be taken to get said passport. Below is the process we went through to get ours.

Shake, Shuffle and Roll: Memphis Edition, Day 1

It was too soon to leave Memphis. We didn’t have our fill of Delta Blues and blackened catfish yet. But it was time to draw a card, roll the dice and go somewhere. Somewhere the suit of the cards and the dots on the dice would lead us. Chance would dictate our route for the next 48 hours.

Our game was simple. Draw a heart and we drive north, a diamond south, a club west and a spade east. The dice tell us how many miles to go and doubles would give us the option to double the miles. So a queen of hearts plus a pair of fours meant north, either 44 or 88 miles. We’d give ourselves one misdeal a day if we didn’t like the direction. Otherwise it was shake, shuffle, roll and go find something interesting.

We discussed the previous night in Memphis over shrimp and grits, and a few refills of the house coffee. Beale Street never disappoints with its bars stacked with bourbon and its stages vibrating with the sounds of blues, rock or soul. Songs by
