Amtrak is returning to Gulf Coast

Amtrak hasn’t visited the Gulf Coast since Hurricane Katrina hit the area 15 years ago. Given the abundance of alternative transportation options like highways and cheap flights, Amtrak’s return to the area seemed unlikely. But City Council members in Mobile, Alabama, just voted for the return of the Sunset Limited — the train that once traveled along the Gulf Coast — and those who frequently traveled on the old route are sure to feel a bit nostalgic. The vote would bring back a portion of th...

11 cool things to do in Mobile, Alabama – on my Deep South road trip USA

Arriving in Mobile on Alabama’s southern Gulf Coast, I immediately felt a relaxed and cosmopolitan atmosphere that was somehow different to the bustling feel of Birmingham and Montgomery that I’d visited earlier in my Deep South Road Trip. Colonised and fought over by the French, British and Spanish in the 18th century, Mobile is a cultural melting pot with strong Creole influences that hark back to the time it was part of the French colony of Louisiana. Although I only spent a couple of da...

Destructive rights of student inclusion

Slow Down: Why You Should Travel As Slow As You Can

Soloviova Liudmyla/Shutterstock Traveling slowly is a special pleasure—and you should do it. Next time you have to drive long-distance, take an extra two days and go slowly through the backroads. Or take a train across the country instead of flying. Or best of all, spend a few weeks cycling or walking somewhere. The slower you go, the better. I love traveling slowly. At least once a year for the past few years, I’ve embarked on a deliberately slow trip. The kind of trip where the whole poi...

When Zora Neale Hurston And Langston Hughes Took A Grand Southern Road Trip

The two great African-American writers happened to run into each other on the street in Mobile, Alabama on a summer day in 1927, and she invited him to ride along with her to Tuskegee and beyond, through Georgia and South Carolina and ultimately home to New York. As biographer Yuval Taylor recounts, they visited a traveling rural school, saw a Bessie Smith traveling tent show, had a session with a conjur-man, and plenty more. –

That is another story all to itself. But, I digress … In 1999, CRM was a four-letter word to most people involved with it. Every day you were hearing about a new, failed multi-million dollar CRM project. The software was expensive and hard to use. The hardware (remember when you actually had to install software on...

What's The Religious Meaning Of Fat Tuesday?

Every year, falls the day before Ash Wednesday. And this timing is no coincidence. Ash Wednesday marks official beginning of Lent, a period of prayer, fasting, and repentance that Catholics and some other Christians observe before Easter. While today, Catholics commonly abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent, in the past, Lenten fasting was far more strict.“Mardi Gras ” is French for Fat Tuesday.

Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama

Any mention of Mardi Gras in the US usually makes people think of New Orleans. While the Big Easy has the biggest and most famous Mardi Gras party, the first official Mardi Gras in the US actually took place in Mobile, Alabama, in 1703. Mobilians are proud of being the location for America’s first Mardi Gras. So much so that the state tourism board put up a billboard outside of New Orleans stating in all caps, “You are 114 miles from America’s original Mardi Gras.” And while the wasted horde...
