Our goal is simply to go someplace warmer for part of the winter so we can enjoy being outdoors.
Days 5-12: Big Bend National Park
- Hiking in the park
- Driving the river road
- Maybe getting on the river?
The Plan: We’ve wanted to come here since family visited years ago and talked about how much they liked the area. We’re looking forward to secluded desert and dark skies.
Days 13-16: Austin
- Bat Colony
- Surrounding countryside
- Live music if possible
The Plan: Neither of us has been here, though I almost came to school here back in the day. No real agenda; more about absorbing the general vibe.
Days 17-20: San Antonio
- The River Walk
- The Alamo
- King William District Victorians
- Mission Trail
The Plan: I’ve been here a couple of times for work and enjoyed the River Walk. I never did make it to the Alamo so I’m looking forward to that.
Days 21-25: Port Aransas
- Walking the beach
The Plan: We hope it’s nice enough to walk on the beach, even if we can’t sit on it and hang out. It sounds like there might be good birdwatching at North Padre Island.
