Exploring Downtown Dallas on Spring Break

Beautiful building structure in Downtown Dallas

It’s Spring Break, that means it’s frolicking time again. We had a great time exploring Downtown Dallas today. We didn’t take the DART because we thought the travel time was quite long. So we convoyed. We felt more comfortable with that.

Exploring city downtown means a lot of walking. But we were prepared for that. We had our most comfortable tennis shoes on. Ha! You have to pay a one-day parking in downtown, too. It was $10 per car.

I always admire beautiful building structures and Downtown Dallas did not disappoint. You may look at the photos above. We visited one museum called Museum of Illusions. Below is me and the girls in one of the areas where your eyes are tricked (optical illusion).

After so much walking, we were starving, so we had an early dinner at the Family Thais Asian Bistro and headed home after.

Winter Storm in Texas

Birds in the snow.

We are getting the winter storm here in Texas with zero degrees the lowest temperature of the week. Heavy snowfall two days ago and we’re almost out of firewood. The power outage were on and off one evening. Good thing it didn’t go off for a day or days unlike in the other cities in Texas. We were very lucky.

The roads were still not passable, so we’re stuck for another few days? Anyway, I hope the sun will show up very soon because we couldn’t wait to go out and about.

Christmas Stay-cation

Merry Christmas from The Wandering Miss! I hope everyone is having a cheerful Holiday Season and staying healthy and safe every day. My family and I are not traveling for the holidays. We are just going to spend Christmas with my husband’s family this year. Our plan for a Christmas vacation to the Philippines has been set aside for now. Strict travel restrictions are still in effect at airports and destinations require two weeks of quarantine upon arrival. We don’t want to be into that hassle.

Though we missed your family back home, we just have to endure this. We want everyone to be safe, too. Hopefully, the Covid-19 vaccine will be available soon.

For now, we just have to do stay-cation. Driving in and around Dallas is fun, too. In fact, we enjoyed looking at Christmas exhibits at Northpark Mall. We were amazed how intricate and beautiful each display was. It was worth the time loitering around Nortpark Mall.
