Day 20, Day 21, Day 22 & Day 23

Memphis - Texas

snow -18 °C

Day 20: Memphis - Dallas

- Texarkana (this is where the two states join)
- sick in bed (spent 11 hours on the bus, then went straight to bed with the flu didnt even go out for dinner.....sucky day!)

Day 21: Dallas

- 6th Floor Museum (apparently where the fatal shot that killed JFK was fired from....however I spoke to the conspiracy theorists and I do not for a second believe that for a second it came from the 6th floor....eerie stuff that a government could plot to kill a president and hide it)
- Worlds Largest Hooters (Beck's Birthday party lunch)
- Fortworth & Stockyards (this is where we went out to dinner at a traditional texas restaurant where a guy riding a bull came out the front and let us ride his bull called 'lone star' and then we went to a honky tonk where there were pool tables, bull riding, country dancing and lots lots more)

Day 22: Dallas - Amarillo

- what was meant to be a quick 5hr bus ride turned into over 10 as the roads were iced over the towns were getting snowed in and we were sliding all over the roads, all whilst I was having a heart attack the whole time
- The Big Texan Steak Challenge (2 of our contiki boys entered the competition where you had to eat 3.5kg steak, baked potato, bread, salad and 3 fried prawns all within an hour......safe to say that didnt happen but we sure had a lot of fun watching them try and we all put money in as if you loose dinner costs 70 bucks but considering they provided the nights entertainment we provided a couple of bucks each to cover them)
- The Big Texan Bar (this place was amazing with shooting games, giants bears and lots of novelty texas stuff!! this is also where Tahns and I met 2 NFL players Caleb Campbell & Cody Sparks......Caleb was seriously amazing he went to the most prestigeous army academy, went to iraq, came back got drafted to professional footy, went to the olympics as a bob sledder and is now releasing a book....all by 26, and all by being the most down to earth country boy ever! yeah i found my future hubby and he is smitten as a kitten with me and coming to disney land with us woooo woooo we lovvveee America!!!

Day 23: Amarillo - Alberquerki (if thats how you spell it??)

- Santa Fe (one of the most spiritual towns in the usa and home to the chapel with the miraculous stairwell which they incinuate that jesus built)
- Another bus day, not much to report.....going down to the hotel lobby for dinner and having a room party considering it is -18 degrees outside and our hot air balloon ride got cancelled as they said exposing yourself for to that weather can cause frost bite BUMMER
