Trip Summary

Business trip to Houston, Texas.

Best Bits

Spending the week eating quality Mexican and BBQ food!

Lyndon in Texas

Worst Bits

Be prepared to drive everywhere! It’s not a walking town, and is very spread out.

Trip Dates and Comments on Timing

June — It’s hot in Houston in June, but still bearable.

Arrival Logistics

Landed at Bush airport, and took a taxi to the Houstonian Hotel

General Route

Sunday at the hotel to recover from jetlag, then business meetings all week, flying back out on Friday.

Main Activities

Sport and Exercise, Shopping, Food.

Food and Drink Highlights

Ate Mexican at El Tiempo (casual, fun, good food), Hugo (higher end, great food) and Pico (more Mexican than Texmex, great margaritas). At Cajun at Ragin’ Cajun (lots of character, very informal and rustic, worth a trip), and BBQ at Gatlins (fantastic food, great staff. Place itself is new, so lacks a bit of character, but still loved it).

Essential Packing for this Trip

Sunscreen, your Uber app (taxis aren’t so great, Uber is everywhere).

What Lyndon got up to…

Busy work days every day, and then heading out in the evenings to enjoy Texan cuisine. The Texans are a warm bunch, and very happy to give recommendations on things to do/places to eat. Also visited the Museum Of Natural Science on the weekend, which I’d recommend.

I’m from Perth, Western Australia

My favourite trip as of late is New Zealand, solo travel in lots of nature for a soul-refresher.

My travelling style is to Book the first night, then wing it from there!

It’s a dealbreaker when I’m stuck around large groups of package tourists.

Continent I know best is Asia.
