    USA Tour - Dallas - Texas

    January 5 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C


    So today started off with a walk into downtown Dallas - I’ll be honest the walk isn’t brilliant but it was awesome weather!

    I walked around where JFK got shot which was kinda strange, too many tourists posing and laughing which I wasn’t a fan of. I went to a bar called gators and FaceTimed my mum for an hour in the glorious sunshine drinking amber ale.

    Then I got a Uber to the Dallas cowboys stadium around 3:30 even though the game didn’t kick off till 7:15. But I was so excited, although I’m not NFL fan, it’s an opportunity I couldn’t refuse. Plus if I was to pick a NFL team it would be the Dallas Cowboys.

    The Uber driver dropped me off at a place called Texas live! It’s a complex full off bars, restaurants and huge screen tv’s. I noticed as I was walking around that I was the only one not wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey.... so I ended up dropping $100 on a jersey I’ll never wear again hahahahah.

    Before the cowboys game, I went outside to the drinking area where there was 2 huge tv’s showing the Houston Texans game. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to support them or not as some cowboys fans were celebrating and some weren’t 😂😂😂 however the best thing about it was 1 - the waitresses where all in leather chaps.... and 2 - the view I had of the stadium was unreal, especially as the sun was setting.

    Walking over to the stadium was cool, there was tailgating going on and had been since about 1pm and the stadium is huge, it’s fucking awesome!

    I get into the stadium and one thing I’ll say is that even with 90k people and a closed roof, the atmosphere just isn’t the same as back home in a footy stadium. It feels sanitised... manufactured. However as a spectacle it’s like nothing I’ve seen before.

    The seats I had give an awesome view, quite high up but it gave a full view of the field and you could still pick out the players.

    I can’t comment too much on the game as I still don’t understand it,however as an event it was awesome and would love to do it again

    Billi Bobs Western Flair

    November 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Am Nachmittag auf dem Weg nach Florida 😁 hielten wir in einer kleinen Western Stadt um ein wenig zu entspannen bevor der weite Weg weiter geht 😊
    Wir hielten in der Nähe von Dallas bei Fort Worth und besuchten dort eine rießiege Sporthalle, Tanzsall und Rodeo Arena 😅
    Neben Billiard konnte man an einem Spiel mit fast echten Waffen auf Enten schießen Jojo hat zwar um einiges gewonnen lag aber nur daran das Kerstin Waffe nicht richtig funktionierte und er nicht tauschen wollte 😂😂
    Am Abend fand ein Rodeo statt aber auf der einen Seite wussten wir nicht ob wir diese Tierquälerei unterstützen sollten und auf der anderen wollten wir weiter in den warmen Osten 🙈

    Ft Worth Stock Exchange

    October 31, 2015 in the United States ⋅

    Almost as an afterthought, Celia mentioned the historical Fort Worth Stock Exchange as a great place to visit. It was, indeed, fabulous! The stock exchange has roots in the 19th century and is still in use today. They maintain a small herd of longhorn cattle, and herd them down the brick street once a day for the tourists ... that's US. The little museum was interesting, the old building reeked of history, and the cattle were fearsome. Gordon enjoyed schmoozing with the wrangler before the "cattle run" (more like a cattle stroll).

    Before heading south through the still gray weather, we decided to fortify ourselves. Finding no interesting restaurants in the vicinity we prowled the tourist shops on-site. We noticed someone eating something that did not appear to be on the otherwise ordinary, tourist shop style menu. It was the seasonal brisket stew ... and was it DELICIOUS! Savory, aromatic, loaded with vegetables as well as tender meat, and only $6. We split a bowl, and waddled contentedly across the antique brick street to our car and headed south.
