Destination Two >> Memphis

Memphis, Tennessee
Aaron and I have spent the last week in Memphis, Tennessee. Well, I guess, technically, that is a lie... our campground is actually in West Memphis, Arkansas right on the Mississippi River, but I can totally see Tennessee from here. Plus, we did nothing but work and sleep in West Memphis. So yeah, all the fun was had in the real Memphis.

This was the first full week of our... what are we calling this? journey? new life? whatever. In any case, this was the first week.

We parked the Airstream in Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Campground on Sunday night and there it stayed all week long. We worked, I had class, I did video calls, it was basically life as usual. Know what that means? It means it was pretty damn boring. But, we did go out to dinner in Memphis on Wednesday night, and it was the most delicious meal I have had in a long time.

We went to the Majestic Grille. Which was pretty cool because it is located in a building from 1913 that used to house a silent movie theater. So not only was the food amazing, the architecture was pretty interesting too. The reviews for the restaurant had me a little worried, because, many of them said that the service was terrible. But our waitress was great, and I probably wouldn't have cared anyway. Because one, my $10 drink had me decently buzzed, and two, oh my god the food, so stinkin' delicious.

Alright ya'll, that is all from Memphis. Now, we are hitching up and heading west! Hopefully it gets warm soon...

Do you have any must see Texas destinations? Dining recommendations receive top consideration.
