We were supposed to leave at 7:00 am but our bus got a flat tire, and we didn't leave until 9:00 am.
As soon as the bus left, we would stop every 4 hours. It would either be at a gas station to get some snacks and gas, a fast food restaurant to eat, or a rest stop to stretch and take a break.
In the evening on the first day we stopped at a small town in Missouri called Hannibal. We all did some site-seeing, ate at Subway, and then a group of us went to see the light house. :)
After our stop in Hannibal we would be driving through the night. Some of us slept on the floor, others on the chairs, and some people stayed awake all night. I definitely slept, because I knew that it would be better for me. I brought a blanket and pillow, and slept quite comfortably on the bus floor. :)
Stay tuned for tomorrow! :) That day we arrived in New Orleans!
