Houston is not only home  to NASA but more importantly, its home to Clem & Max, our lovely friends who we are so happy to see.  First thing’s first, we went to Cavender’s, a legendary Texan cowboy boot retailer. If you’re an animal activist this is […]

Charming Charleston

Charming Charleston

We have arrived in the historic city of Charleston, best known for its cobbled streets, horse drawn carriages, beautiful French quarter and even more Antebellum architecture. Our first day in Charleston was an absolute corker. We wandered around the French quarter and waterfront in 24 degree […]

On the road again

On the road again
