New Orleans

After hopping on a Mega Bus from a very questionable bus stop in Houston, we started our 6 hour journey to New Orleans. We originally planned to travel via night bus, but as we didn’t find Houston too exciting we decided to change our tickets and get a day time ride instead. With an extra…

Texas: College Station & Houston

Howdy, Y’all! After a couple of days in Austin, we drove 2hrs east to College Station. This is a uni town, the Texas Aggricultural & Mechanical college, the 2nd biggest college by student body population (+50k!).

A week in the Canyons: Zion & Bryce National Parks
