On the lighter side-Travel-Luray Caverns, Virginia
We were already high on vacation (actually my wife was) as she was again looking for a weekend getaway, even after the exhausting trip to Disney World and the memorial day weekend was the excellent way to go on one. And she started to eagerly look for some place where it would be enough to go on a weekend trip without breaking the bank and where we can drive easily. I was also craving for some vacation time but not this fast as it was only a month that we had come back from Florida and she finally found a place to go which I had never heard off before. It was called Luray Caverns in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley about 341 miles from our house. I did not explore that much as I saw some pictures of it on the internet and read a little but watching it would have been an experience. As the day came on Saturday, we had already packed our bags which my wife said is more than packing stuff for three days; we started our journey towards Virginia. As our check in time was 3.00 P.M. we started at around eleven. Our hotel was 311 miles from where we live and I was dreading that there would be traffic as it was a memorial day weekend as it is called the unofficial start of the summer season. But to my surprise the roads were not clogged and we were driving at the maximum speed limit without a hint of even slowly down due to construction or accident. As I love to drive, I was the main person at the helm of the driving seat.
