On our way to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum… We ran into this super cool mailbox. The day was a bit cloudy with rain drops every so often, but that didn’t stop us! On to see the animals and rocks. 🙂

Galveston Island, TX. (Day 1)

Galveston Island, TX. (Day 1)

We have felt very welcomed since we drove into Texas… All the southern states were kind to drive through. That has only continued to grow once we reached Galveston. The awesome people at Galveston Island Conventions and Visitor’s Bureau helped us to know the best things to do in Galveston in the off-season. January is the coldest month there and this year was no exception, except maybe a bit icier. We planed to go on a speed boat and parasailing but the weather put a stop to that… But that led us to museums, history, ghost stories, great food and an Amazing time at the Hotel Galvez and Spa ( which opened in 1911 and was the summer White House for a year during one of Franklin Roosevelt’s terms. ) —>https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gemini-Extreme-Adventure-Team/420345111395649?ref=hl

We've Arrived... In Texas!

We started out of the Great North East to the warmer winds of Eastern Texas, 27hours and 1,600 miles, taking turns at the wheel… And we have finally made it out of the land of frozen nights!

The meal was surely worthy of praise. After all what’s an adventure without some high quality creative food to fill our bellies and souls afterwards. We chose our drinks from their slate drink menu and ordered a couple of soups to share while we took everything in. The menu was big and delicious, making it a challenge to chose. But at last we did. Local bacon wrapped around stuffed Jalapeños shared the next course with mouth watering crab cakes. Local treasures of Mushrooms, Onions, Herbs, Tomatoes and Peppers graced our entrees. After all this we couldn’t help but to try their desserts, the chocolate cake they had that evening is something we still talk about.

Mt. Washington Region, New Hampshire

After five amazing days in the Great North Woods we were happy to reach cell service and warmer weather upon arriving at the Mt. Washington Auto Road. The warm weather was stuck with us until we reached the peak at 6,288 feet, where it was barely 32 degrees! The drastic change in temperature is a trademark of Mt. Washington. The Auto Road is the perfect way to learn the rich history of this area.
Less than 20 minutes away was our home away from home for a couple of days. The accommodations at Attitash Mountain Village were amazing. The location was perfect for us, and it had every comfort of home perfect after our time in the woods. The room would be wonderful in the winter too, complete with fireplaces and in-room hot tubs. We appreciated having a little time to relax before our 8 o’clock dinner at Margarita Grill. Margarita Grill is not your run of the mill mountain town restaurant. They specialize in local and organic food with a Southwest flare.
