Last Friday, Nik and I took off on a mini road trip through Texas. Our first stop was Austin to see if it really can compare to Portland. It can. Then we headed farther south and a little to the east to visit Galveston to see if it could compare to Nik’s childhood memories. It can, sort-of.
All in all, it was a great trip and I know a little bit more about Texas. Now I need to take Nik on a mini road trip through Tennessee!
