Texas as a state is large and diverse and my experiences there were incredibly varied and different. From the world changing history on display at the NASA Johnson Space Centre in Houston to horse riding through the Texas hill country. I got to immerse myself in live music in Austin and relax, ice tea in hand, along the river walk in San Antonio. No matter where in Texas we were however the people were consistently lovely, always making visitors feel welcome.
I grew up in my dad’s garage listening to Nat King Cole, so it’s no surprise that driving Route 66 was high up on my bucket list. So when my friend and I started planning a US road trip of the Deep South, I knew this was my chance!
