  • Day13

    Deep in the Heart of Texas

    June 3 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    The Sunset Limited sped through the night via Palm Springs and into Nebraska. The landscape is now much more desert-like, with great cacti lining the track. My lunch companions were interesting - Rob, a young, overweight railroad worker whose only trip outside the USA was to China where his wife comes from. ‘They do great Chinese food there’ he explained. Really?

    We were joined by a loud voice approaching our table which exclaimed ‘Hi, am Hooleeana and am a cansa suvayva fom Mehico.’ Come again? Oh, you’re a cancer survivor from Mexico, Juliana - thanks for sharing that. ‘Yo wanna see ma scas?’ No thank you ... but it was too late, the top was raised. ‘You like ma haya?’ she said, pointing to her bright red Tina Turner coiffure. ‘Ees a wig’ . ‘El Paso looks nice’ I said, trying to change the subject. ‘El Paso - yoo kidding - ees the ampit of yoo ess of a.’ Ah well, back to lunch.

    We travelled through the great belly of Texas - hour after hour of endless desert and scrubland with occasional mountain ranges - like scenes from so many westerns. Early on the morning of day 2 on the Sunset Limited we arrived in San Antonio. My planned connection to Dallas was interrupted due to flooding on the line, and the Texas Eagle train only went as far as Fort Worth. From here I caught a local train for the hour-long trip to Dallas (sings: ‘Big D, Little A, Double L,, A S’ - name the musical).

    Big D was hot and humid but still cloudy. Went for a walk to the Texas Book Depositary and Dealey Plaza where President John F Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. It was a strange feeling to be standing on the spot so familiar from TV documentaries.

    USA Tour - Dallas - Texas

    January 3 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 3 °C

    I FINALLY MADE IT! 17 hours after leaving St Louis I arrived in Dallas, Texas

    And it was pissing it down!

    I was so fucked off, hadn’t slept at all on the coach it’s 6:30am, I’m drenched, I have no WiFi to order an Uber and generally annoyed so Dallas didn’t get off to the best of starts!

    I made my way to my hostel which was about a 20 minute walk from the bus station, carrying two bags which were heavy on roads with no pavements. I knew I was far too early to check into my hostel but I was just hoping to leave my bags there and maybe sit down. However Lady Luck must of been looking down at me as the woman on reception let me check in at 7am which was 9 hours early! I could of cried, I was tired and just wanted to sleep so I ran to my room threw all my stuff on my bed and just passed out. I was lucky enough to remember to set my alarm for the Liverpool V City game.

    I had a few hours sleep and went to find a bar for the game. Ended up going with a guy called Bruno who was staying in my hostel to an Irish bar for the game. We got talking to a guy from St Louis who was a Liverpool fan who used to live in Sheffield 😂😂 then a Manc came in from fallowfield!

    Liverpool lost but it was a good laugh having a few beers watching the game - felt like home for a bit

    After the game I went back the hostel and just slept all afternoon and all night.

    I was exhausted

    USA Tour - Dallas - Texas

    January 4 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Lazy day today. I walked around Deep Ellum and came across a bar called Adair’s Saloon - proper little dive bar. It was awesome. I spent a few hours in there. Cool tunes, good food and excellent beer. This area is much cooler than it seems, you get to know it just by being there, drinking, eating and watching the world go by!Read more

    USA Tour - Dallas - Texas

    January 6 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Chill day today. After watching the NFL the night before and not getting back till late I decided to have a nice chill day as I’m almost 30 😂😂😂

    I stayed around my local area of Deep Ellum as I do think it’s the best area of Dallas.

    I saw a bar on my first day called Ruin bar so I headed there as it had an outside seating area.

    Not going to lie, I sat there all day and made my way through the beer menu and watched the day go by

    14/10 would recommend

  • Day1

    Opening

    March 20, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    It’s starting 😃
    As one of the speakers in the opening keynote Jacob Morgan presented ‘The Experiential Organization’, very inspiring! His views on employee experience give a lot food for thought.
    Jacob claims that looking at employee engagement for improvement potential doesn’t do the trick as we are providing ‘adrenalin shots’ to improve engagement rather than working on the cause. Where engagement is the result, experience is the cause and sustainable, long lasting improvement of employee engagement can only be achieved by focusing on great employee experience. The experience is built out of three blocks which are interlinked and influence each other: physical space (office, working environment), technology (tools, enablers), and culture (values, way of cooperation) - sorry for the blurry picture, or do I need better glasses, again???Read more
