We spent a delightful seven days in New Orleans. Our nomad lifestyle beckoned us back on the road, traveling to "somewhere," to discover another adventure.
Our travel goal for today is to get somewhere west of Houston, Texas before settling down for the night. We arrived within the city limits on the east-side of Houston, on Interstate 10, around 5:00 p.m. Traffic was already backed up, creeping along bumper-to-bumper, and continued so, even when we exited onto Interstate 610 North, a by-pass route around downtown Houston. Finally, close to 7:00 p.m. we cleared the seemingly endless traffic congestion of Houston. What a relief! I made a mental note to myself: Never travel through Houston again!!!
While traveling through Houston, Sharon had been busy researching places to stop for the night on our Android Smartphone App: Allstays Camp and RV. A truck stop in Sealy, Texas looked promising. Decision made!
Upon our arrival in Sealy, Texas we were pleasantly surprised to discover a strip mall adjacent to the truck stop. Within the strip mall were an Italian restaurant and an Asian restaurant. Perfect! A place to spend the night and have dinner too.
We dined at Jin’s Asian Café. Sharon had the Kung Pao Chicken and I had the Mongolian Chicken. Both items were delicious and satisfied our ravenous appetites.
Exhausted from our day’s journey, we settled in for a night of much needed rest.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
