Most people who start off a backpacking tour start with a cheap flight and some pretty crappy accommodations. I am lucky enough to start off this trip with my parents with a business class seat and luxurious accommodations.
In order to get the flight we wanted, we had to fly to Dallas for a night and stay over. I called in a favor and we stayed at the beautiful Four Seasons Dallas. The weather was hot and humid but that didn’t stop us from venturing out with my friend from college to try a new restaurant called LUCK Dallas. LUCK Dallas is just over the Margaret Hunt Hull Bridge built as part of the Trinity River project.
Now I am sitting in the club lounge at the airport waiting to start my adventure. I have to appreciated these moments before I get to the down and dirt part of backpacking Europe!
