Spring Break 2k15: TX --> NM

Sunday, March 15, 2015

We were lazy bums and slept in until like 9:30 or ten or something. Well, I was awake by 8 or 8:30 but I did not remove myself from bed until later to shower and get ready. Despite our bout of morning laziness, we were on the road before our goal time of noon. Our plan was to make the 4 hour drive to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I would just like to say that road trips with your friends are awesome. We stopped at a rest stop (still in TX) and checked out the free car/Elvis museum inside and picked up caffeinated beverages. 


Then we drove a bit more until we reached the New Mexico border. Shortly into New Mexico we stopped in Tucumcari for lunch where Sophie has Subway and Darce and I had Sonic. 


On the drive we saw a sign for a dinosaur museum but it was closed so we are hoping to stop by on the drive back at the end of the week. I also saw some tumbleweeds! And we found ten more states to add to our license plate list. Only missing 14 now!

We made it to Albuquerque about 5 hours later at 4 PM (p.s we went back in time because of the time change). We checked into the Holiday Inn Express then went for a drive around Albuquerque where we checked out some of the Breaking Bad filming locations (including Walter's house, Jesse's house, and Los Pollos Hemanos), and the University of New Mexico.


After that we got gas, hit up Chili's for dinner, and stopped by Walmart. Once back to our hotel, we dropped off our purchases and walked next door to Applebee's to get triple chocolate meltdowns for dessert to eat as we skyped David.

Driving all day took a lot out of  us so we were in bed by 10 looking to get a good nights rest before our 8 hour drive the next morning!
