Hello from the great city of Dallas, Texas. Wow we have traveled pretty far huh? Lol kidding don’t worry we are aware this is more of a small stepping stone.
First thoughts of Dallas?
- These people like their fast food holy smokes.
- Football really is as big as people make it out to be.
- These people are crazy drivers
- These people have nice houses
Lets break these all down and explain a little more of what we’ve seen.
- Fast Food Everywhere
Well this one is self explanatory. There are so many fast food places out here wow. I know I am only 4.5 hours away but even in Galveston we don’t have anything like this. I am glad. Otherwise I’d be fat.
2. DTX Football
One of the first places we stopped at was a football field where we saw a huge camp for high schoolers going on just outside of Dallas. I had never seen anything like it. The crazier part is that it wasn’t just football players but high school football kickers. Crazy huh? Who would have thought there were would be so many freaking kickers at one camp. Never seen anything like it. If a kicking camp is that large imagine how intense and packed a regular football camp would be. It is crazy to see.
With our curious selves we actually stayed and watched (mainly because my husband loves football). We even got to talk to the guy running the camp. Cameron (who started www.kickingunit.com) said he used to kick in hs and college and now loves seeing kids succeed through his camps. He was a great guy and even offered to give us a few pointers. Unfortunately we were just arriving in Dallas and wanted to see more of the city.
3. Learn to Drive People
I will be the first to tell you my husband isn’t the best driver but these people are nuts. Literally almost wiped us out on the highway multiple times. City people and their driving….sdkfsdkjfh Eeeesh. Just watch out. I warned you 🙂
4. That’s a House?
Holy S#$%! These houses in the heart of Dallas are crazy. Looked like something off Beverley Hills Housewives. Another crazy thing about the extremely nice houses were how close they were to ghetto/run down areas. One street would be “Wow Look at that” the next would be “Lock the doors quick”.
These are just a few observations we(I) noticed so far at our short stint here in Dallas.
Not sure how long we will be here (Especially since we dont have a schedule) but I do know our next stop will be north.. Maybe Oklahoma? Anyone know any cool places in Oklahoma that might need to be checked out? Let me know 🙂
Thanks for reading this lovely story.
Be good America.
Welp we have left… I know what you are thinking, who is “we”. Let me explain. I might not have given you guys all the details in my initial post. Lucky for you I am sitting in the passenger seat on a nice 4.5 hour ride to Downtown Dallas. As mentioned before Dallas is our first stop and I am kinda stoked. Why you ask? Maybe because I have literally never been to Dallas EVER.
Yes, yes I know. I lived in Galveston for my entire life and have never been to Dallas. In fact the furthest I have ever been from Galveston is Houston. Call me crazy. I am a home body and now I am stepping out of my comfort zone and moving to a new country. Crazy I know.
Anyways back to the details about who I am with… I am with my loving husband. The one I have been with for 4 years and married to for only 1 month. We are both seeking a new adventure and to live life before we fully settle down and start a family. What better way to do this than to travel to a new country right? My thoughts exactly.
We both left our 9 to 5 jobs cleaned out our saving accounts sold all of our furniture and one of our cars and now we are traveling around like to bandits who just escaped jail in a 1980’s film. Okay it may not be that drastic. We did sell all of our stuff for efficiency purposes we left all the money in the bank haha.
Does anyone just carry cash around anymore besides Floyd Mayweather?
Okay didn’t think so just wanted to make sure.
Nonetheless, our first stop is DTOWN Dallas. Right in the heart of one of the biggest cities in the great states. What are our plans when we arrive? Great question I thought you’d never ask.
I wish I could answer it but we honestly had one rule for this trip and it consists of no set plans each and every day. Every day we are walking in blind. No set schedules, meetings to attend, or people to please.
Our sense of creating complete happiness consists of not having a damn thing to do. Pure joy and enjoying life is what we are after and it all starts with throwing the calendar out the window and deleting all tasks on the to-do list.
See you guys in Dallas. Hope you are enjoying your time with me so far. Stay tuned for more.
Peace and Love.
Thanks for visiting my site Cami Del Nord. I created this site in order to blog about my journey of moving North. MY Journey begins today and starts in Galveston, Texas. I am moving/traveling to Canada in hopes to free my spirit, meet new people, and find new opportunities elsewhere. I have lived in Galveston, Texas for nearly my entire life (I won’t tell you an exact amount to avoid giving you my actual age).
It is where I have created so many memories and gained so many great friends. I will miss it and I know one day I will be back. When? I don’t know for sure. What I do know is I am ready for my new journey and can’t wait to see what God has planned for me.
I hope you’ll follow my journey and leave me encouragement and feedback along the way. And heck, who knows, maybe we will meet up at one of my stops along the way.
Next stop, Dallas, TX. Stay tuned for more adventurous tales from yours truly.
