hailey hits the road from the motor city to music city and discovers the true meaning of honky tonk


destination: detroit, mi and nashville, tn

purpose of journey: mom’s cooking, family hang time, and an impromptu road trip.

never travel without: a journal and a disposable camera

favorite outfit you packed: vintage blazer, embroidered cotton blouse, and vintage valentino bag

how many pairs of shoes: two: platform boots and chuck taylors

what were you listening to: patsy cline, dolly parton, and every shade of bluegrass

favorite meal: hot chicken at prince’s--worth every fiery bite. another notable was after spending the night locked out of our airbnb, we crawled into roze cafe in east nashville for some truly life-reviving coffee and eggs.

highlight of the trip: road tripping through parts of america i’ve never been before. finally understanding the meaning of ‘honky tonk.’ the part of the johnny cash museum where they just play the ‘hurt’ music video on loop. what a town!
