Travel | Ride 'Em Cowboy | Trek America Diary #8

Texas, the home of cowboys, line dancing and guns. And I got to experience two out of three of them during our time in the Lone Star State.

We all decided when we had some free time to try and find a shooting range as some of us wanted to give it a try. This was something I was a bit apprehensive about doing as we had only been in Charleston days before the tragic church shooting; however I was advised that this shooting range was really safe and that I would be supervised the whole time. It was an experience I'll never forget but I can't say I'll ever want to do it again.

Also during our time in Texas we visited the Capitol building where I got to stand where Obama and George Bush had given speeches as well as us getting a private talk from a guy who worked there. We also visited Barton Springs where I had never experienced water so cold in my life. You had to just throw yourself in there to get over the shock of how cold it is.

Unfortunately as we were in Texas on a Monday/Tuesday there wasn't much live music or line dancing happening. Joelle did manage to find a small bar called The White Horse where we went and watched some live music and had a little dance after the disappointment of not seeing any bat fly out from under Congress Avenue Bridge.

We also wander the streets of Austin, stopping in vintage shops and cowboy shops; where of course obligatory selfies with cowboy hats and boots on were taken.

Have you visited Texas? Are you thinking of doing a Trek America tour?

Until Next Time...
