1 Minute Travel Highlights. Houston Texas. Potente Restaurant. Part 1.

After a great day interviewing Congressional candidate Lizzie Fletcher (www.LizzieFletcher.com) we sat in the Westin hotel lounge and had a fascinating conversation about women and politics with the cocktail hostess. It was truly enlightening. Too tired to hop in another ride share, we decided to walk across the street and voila…this wonderful new Houston restaurant had a table for two (it was Friday at 7pm!). Check it out. PotenteHouston.com

1 Minute Travel Highlights. San Antonio. Dinner on the Riverwalk. Part 2.

Our search for a restaurant along the river in San Antonio took us back to the Westin. As we relaxed after a very long day beginning with a wonderful experience interviewing Gina Ortiz Jones GinaOrtizJones.com) taking a little boat ride along the river and a delicious dinner, we reflect on our adventure so far (it’s only been 24 hours!).

1 Minute Travel Highlights. San Antonio Restaurants. Dinner along the Riverwalk. Part 1.

So…did we find a restaurant for dinner in San Antonio along the river?

Our saga continues on our San Antonio Women2018 adventure. We’re in search of a great restaurant for dinner. It’s been a great day interviewing Gina Ortiz Jones (www.GinaOrtizJones.com) then taking a walk along the river, then a little “river cruise” in the water taxi. Our driver raved about a restaurant along the water. We take his advice. Not quite what we’re looking for. The search continues. The adventure is always great.

1 Minute Travel Highlights. San Antonio, Texas’s “Panama Canal”

San Antonio is filled with travel highlights. The river in the middle of the city is one of them. As we’re cruising down the river in the boat taxi, the boat has to go through the locks. Sort of like the Panama Canal on a much smaller scale. Another Women2018 adventure.

1 Minute Travel Highlights. San Antonio, Texas. The WRONG car.

We were about to interview Gina Ortiz Jones, scouting the park area for the right spot with good light and no wind (it was a windy day!). When we walked back to our rental car, I clicked the unlock button and we hopped in. Oh no! This wasn’t our car! Someone left their car unlocked but we thought it was ours. Our car was down the street. You never know what can happen on a Women2018 adventure.

Crisis at Austin International Airport. The Lost Sweater. Thanks Southwest!

Well maybe not a “crisis”….Part of our Women2018 adventure is going with the flow when hiccups happen. I left my favorite sweater on the airplane. As we’re walking through the terminal I decide to go back and see if I can retrieve the sweater. The plane was already boarding for another flight. I learned that just showing up can have great results. The gate agent said, “just a second, let me see what I can do.” And voila! He got the sweater. I LOVE Southwest. Thank you!
