A trip to Ikea

I'm in northern Georgia for awhile, doing routine medical stuff & hanging out. 

I finally made it down to Atlanta and we went to Ikea.  My wife had never been there before.  Ikea is an interesting place. 
I am a fan of their beds. 

So many ideas for living in a small space, some will work in an RV or a van.  I bought a futon mattress for the van, the mattress was around $80
The futon itself just didn't fit, it was too tall over the wheel well.

The futon & mattress can be bought by themselves
For lunch we went to The Varsity
I'd heard about the Varsity on TV,  I don't recall which show.

As I've heard of interesting places to eat around the country that I'd like to visit I write them down and put them on a map I look at before I go somewhere new.



I liked this place, it's not worth driving across the country to get a chili dog there but it was good. Great onion rings (really good!) & french fries.




Just wait until I make it to Philadelphia,

  2. I really enjoyed shopping in Ikea when I lived in Houston. Actually not shopping but looking around and seeing how they furnished small spaces, lots of great ideas.

    I hope to one day try an authentic Philadelphia cheese steak sandwich.

  4. I lived across the street from an Ikea for awhile. It was a mad house, I'd be happy never setting foot in one again but they have such great stuff and the cheap food in the cafeteria is a nice treat. I'd take a Philly cheese steak over Ikea food any day though.

    1. Ikea for me is a place I go when I'm looking for something and it's usually a good distance away. I did try a paper cup of their meatballs, they were good. Maybe if I lived next door I'd stop in for lunch too.
      I have gone to Costco just for lunch :-)
