Snapshots of Houston, TX // Day 1 // February 2016

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope you are having a good week so far! It's a double travel post week, and back to Houston! :) 

We spent our first day trying yummy restaurants and exploring Montrose. Hilde recommended Montrose to us, it's a fabulously funky part of town filled with antique stores, thrift stores, and little boutiques. There was a lot of street art as well which was super fun!

Eat: Bob's Burger Bus, Ninfa's on Navigation, Fat Cat Creamery, Common Ground Coffee and Pastries.

See: Montrose. Street art. Gorgeous decor at Ninfa's on Navigation.

Shop: Montrose shops, my favorite was called Space, (here's a nice post about it)!

Do: Try the food, explore the neighborhoods, look at the street art and shop!

Favorites: There was some super fabulous street art here in Montrose! The macarons were exceptional - such fun flavors as well! Fat Cat Creamery. How cute!!

New Experiences: Casis Macarons, Seeing Houston & Montrose, visiting a restaurant that used to be a food truck, navigating the crazypants traffic of Houston. (& the construction getting there from Galveston).

Random Tip: The street art in Montrose is incredible as a backdrop for your outfit photos, etc. Also, you can get alcoholic ice cream at Fat Cat! 

Anybody else love street art?

Have you been anywhere in the US that has a strong cultural influence from another country?

Am I the only one who thinks the idea of mermaids is really cool... ? - yeah? That's ok! :P

We also visited Texas (Ft. Worth, Austin, Corpus ChristiKyle, and San Antonio) in 2012. And in 2013 we visited Garland and Amarillo. But we've never been to "East Texis" - as Sheldon Cooper would say. So we had lots of fun exploring this area! A mini gulf trip!

Happy Travels!
