After much anticipation, Frui’s American Deep South Road Trip is finally happening this October. That’s right- like Robert Frank, William Eggleston and countless other master photographers before us, we’re hitting the highway, cameras in hand, in search of inspiration. Over ten days we’ll drive from Atlanta to New Orleans via the Great Smoky Mountains, Nashville and Memphis. Why this region? Because the ‘Deep South’ has inspired some of the greatest photography and cinema, but it’s also home to some of the world’s music capitals and, importantly for Frui, distinctive and delicious regional food and drink.
We’ll stop at photogenic small towns, roadside diners and expansive American vistas. We’ll watch live music in dive bars, boat through swamps and bayous, visit plantation houses and learn to cook cajun food.
This holiday will be all about the spirit of adventure and the open road. Although we’ve planned the most important stops and destinations, we don’t know exactly what we’ll find along the way and that’s all part of the fun!

Day 1: Atlanta
Day 2: Smoky Mountains
Day 3: Nashville
Day 4: Nashville
Day 5: Memphis
