American Adventures Index

Howdy y’all! Welcome to Around the World in Katy Days!

Maybe you came to this page because you want to travel somewhere in the oh so exotic United States. Maybe you already live here and are looking for some weekend adventuring inspiration. Maybe you just clicked this link on accident and are about to peace out. (If so no worries! It was nice meeting ya!) In recent years I’ve been trying to do more adventuring in the country I call home, and since I started this blog, I’ve started chronicling it in my posts. There’s not a lot of content, but hopefully you find something that will help you in planning your travels!

Let’s start with the Lonestar State. Texas, my Texas.
