Back in the early 1990’s my father and I flew out to Texas and had the opportunity to tour Austin and the surrounding areas. We liked what we saw and took the family back for a week’s vacation. We enjoyed some R & R at Lake Travis, went shopping in Dallas, explored the famous caverns in San Antonio as well as enjoyed the San Antonio River Walk, and toured the Alamo.
The Alamo. Oh, the time we spent there. I can still remember my father taking forever reading every little plaque, only to get angry with the last one stating the fort was a replica of the original. Ha! We spent all that time and it wasn’t even the real deal. I bet you all knew that, didn’t you? Well, my dad didn’t at the time.
But Texas had amazing flavor and a zeal for life. It was contagious. Oh! And the best marinated mushrooms I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. I have yet to find a mushroom that comes close. It was the mushrooms that clenched the deal. We bought ourselves a duplex in the beautiful Austin area. It was a safety net. It things ever went to crap in Cali, we could move to Austin. As it would be, I have yet to make it back there. Thor beat me to it.
After all, what would a trip around the world be without a stop in Dallas? Did he get to see cowboys and eat BBQ? Nope, but he thought about potato salad and almost got arrested for rustling horses! That was just the beginning.
Cyber hop on over to Diana’s blog and read up on Thor’s latest:
Thor’s tour is growing, adding more stops all the time. It’s not too late to get involved. Drop me a line or leave a comment if you would like to participate in this fun blog hop. To see where Thor has been and where he has yet to go visit the Thor World Tour page.
Thanks for stopping by. I always look forward to your comments. Until next time, au revoir.
