|The Big Texan|
I admit I have a zest for travel. This lifelong quest to see the world was ignited in me when I studied in Spain for a semester in college.
Until recently, I have overlooked travel to local spots. Unfortunately, I convinced myself that local areas were overrated.
I don't know, for example, how many times I have seen the Big Texan on different travel channels and thought to myself, "What a tourist trap!" Well, I actually went there a few weeks ago and loved the food, the service, and the rustic atmosphere. I was born in Perryton, which is located two hours north of Amarillo, and I finally went to this Texan gem at the age of 29. I had such a fun time.
Furthermore, I went to Cadillac Ranch yesterday, located west of Amarillo, and partook in the tradition of spray-painting my own art on a Cadillac hoisted halfway into the ground.
I am learning to see the beauty that exists everywhere. Explore where you are, people!
