There’s a place in the deep South of the United States of America where ribs and rodeos mingle with museums and margaritas. A place where you’ll find stockyards and stirrups next to cultural art districts.
I’d like to welcome y’all to Texas, a place you need to add to your (probably already expanding) travel bucket list. Stat.
I recently travelled there with Qantas airways, on the inaugural A380 flight direct from Sydney to Dallas. While Qantas have already been flying direct routes on their 747s they haven’t done it in this kind of luxury before.
Looking out the window as we arrived in to Texas, I was in awe. The landscape is really flat. But as your eyes scope the pancaked terrain you see it, BAM some high-rise buildings sticking out like an awkward architectural growth has formed in the middle of the desert. That’s Dallas.
As we hopped off the plane, the first thing that hit me was the sting of the dry air. Beautiful desert-like heat.
And then being greeted by Qantas ambassador, John Travolta. Star Struck. No words. Hello Danny Zucko.
From a huge airport to a rockstar bus, I was taken into the city, where they say, ‘big things happen’.
