To say my relationship with Texas is strained would be an understatement, but I can’t deny the beauty and charm of the Hill Country! Get your cowboy boots on.
By the Wabash River, two Utopian communities tried to create their own experimental paradises. They failed, of course. But going to New Harmony today gives one a light, dare I say, harmonious feeling.
Go back to the Edwardian period in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I lament that bathing is not as fashionable as it used to be in both the US and UK. We go to any hot springs we can, but there’s not as many open today. Arkansas is often looked over but give it a second glance. It’s natural beauty and history might win you over. Take a nostalgic day trip or weekend away in a place that is all deteriorated decadence. See the echoes of the Edwardians, the gangsters, and a wilder time.
