Eat Pray Love Journey – Day 10 – Dallas, Texas
Day 10 was the last day of my trip where I had a brief but eventful hangout in Dallas with Anna. We went on a free 45 minute trolley ride thanks to DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit).
Residence use the trolley as actual form of transportation but we used it as a tourist’s attraction!
The trolley took us around Uptown in Dallas where we made one stop at a park. This park had a lot going that afternoon with workouts, kids playing, and food trucks.
We checked out Dallas Museum of Art that was across the street from the park. Surprisingly, the admission was free! I loved this museum because of how interactive it was. You were able to earn points by entering in codes that were scattered throughout the museum. The more codes you found, the more points you accumulated. With these points, you could get a discount at the store or even get something for free!
I ended up getting a 10% discount at the store where I bought some postcards from the seven or eight codes I found. I had some points leftover so I may have to come back!
We grabbed lunch at Bread Winners Cafe & Bakery on Lovers Lane in Dallas. This is a popular brunch spot even though Yelp rates them 3.5 stars with 153 reviews. I got myself a TexMex breakfast called the Breakfast Tacos for $10.99. It had chorizo, onions, eggs, peppers, cheddar cheese with potatoes and salsa on the side.
It’s probably best to share this or any other meal in Texas because portions are pretty big. They don’t joke around about the food!
After lunch, it was time for me to go back home to SoCal! My time in Dallas was short because it was a lot cheaper to leave on a Saturday than any other day. During my day and a half trip to Dallas, I felt like I got a good taste of what Dallas was all about. I can’t wait to come back here to try more southern food! Oh, of course to see Anna too!
Since no one really travels on a Saturday, I had the whole row to myself! All I did on my flight was stretch out my legs and catch up on some reading on my iPad.
Thanks Anna for your southern hospitality! You definitely made me gain the most weight compared to the other states I visited. It was all worth it though since everything in Texas was so good! See you back in California soon!
