So Monday we left Houston. In the morning we got rid of our rental car and after that it took some time to get all our gear on the bikes. First time we saw it all together….and we might need to get rid of some items the upcoming weeks in order to travel “light”. It’s either Roels nosehairtrimmer or the toolbox.
It took us over an hour to get out of town via the interstate. Unbeleivable….the same distance from Amsterdam to Den Helder, just to get out of town. After that we enjoyed a terrific sunny trip through Texas along ranches and authentic villages.
End of the the day we stopped at Brenham at a motel. You can immagine how our room must have looked like.
Next day we hit the road early (tuesday) to get to Austin. Dave told us to visit Austin and to celebrate Fat tuesday there (Mardi gras). Who were we to ingnore Dave….So Austin it is. Again a really nice ride. Long roads, sunny, ranches….Nice.
We got a hotel near City centre for a reasonable price and our neighbour appeared to be a Dutchman from Amsterdam. That night we had great night out in Austin celebrating fat tuesday. We spent a weeks budget in 6th Street….and woke up this morning deciding not to ride today.
Arranged an insurance for Mexico and planned a tomorrow route. We plan to cross the border in two or three days. Mexico here we come!
