4 days, roughly 1613 miles, 2 time zones, 1 cracked windshield, and 1 flat tire later…we finally made it to El Paso, Texas. Yee haw!
It’s crazy to believe the activities we crammed in over our four day drive to El Paso. I was determined to make our move across the country a mini-vacation [which is probably why it took so long].
Stop 1: Panama City Beach, Florida
Where we stayed: Wyndham Bay Point Resort
We loved the cute little private beach, lots of fru-fru drinks on the menu, and the cute little boardwalk to a floating restaurant in the middle of the bay.
Don’t let all the beachy photos fool you, it rained almost the entire time we were there. The sun came out right as we were checking out so we snuck in a quick walk on the beach.
Stop 2: New Orleans, Louisiana
Where we stayed: Hyatt Regency New Orleans
We loved that our swanky hotel had a to-die-for restaurant within called Borgne, and that is sat only a few blocks away from the French Quarter.
And although we didn’t have much time to play tourist here we did manage to hit up the infamous Cafe du Monde for breakfast. We’ll have to come back for a more wild adventure next time.
Stop 3: San Antonio, Texas
Where we stayed: Eva’s Escape Gardenia Inn Bed & Breakfast
Oh my goodness…as soon as we drove into SA I wished we could stay forever. This place had such a fun vibe! We scored on a sweet deal on a precious B&B which sat only about a mile from the Riverwalk.
We hit up an amazing restaurant called FEAST which was fresh and hip. Afterwards we went to a dueling piano bar, Howl at the Moon to visit an old friend who happens to be one of the entertainers there.
I could go on and on about San Antonio. I am so happy that it’s only a 9 hour drive away, because I must go back. I didn’t take nearly enough photos to capture our awesome stay there.
Final Stop: El Paso, Texas
We arrived into town late last night and are just trying to get our bearings around here. We are going to be busy the next few days looking for a place to live…wish us luck!
In the meantime, I’ve already scoped out a sweet CrossFit gym. Ha ha…priorities right?
Happy Monday friends! Stay tuned this week for more ramblings of a homeless running crossfitter. 🙂
