The thing that I’ve always enjoyed most about travelling is ‘the surprise’. Either coming across something by complete chance, or leaving in awe of a place unexpectedly.
Last week, on our road trip across America, we stopped in Jefferson City (Missouri). After a picnic lunch in the park, and conscious of the storm system rolling in towards the city, we took an hour to visit the Missouri State Capitol.
It was a spectacular from the outside. The size, the dominance in the city skyline, the stone carvings… wow! But what we didn’t expect was what we saw on the inside. Even our two young kids walked around in sheer wonderment. We can see why Jefferson City was named as America’s ‘most beautiful small town’ in 2013.
