This is a pretty nice hotel. I mean it's not The Plaza Hotel in New York City, but a nice place. The hotel is clean. The management staff is very polite. The hotel has a cute but tiny indoor pool and hot tub. The hot tub is a little bit small, but still comforting after being in a car for ten hours. It's really close to Subway, McDonalds, and Whataburger, for some quick food. And they have a continental breakfast, which is scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, coffee, juice, pastries, bagels, and yogurt, which is a good start in the morning and saves money. We didn't get the room we wanted, I booked a king size bed, instead we got two queens, but in retrospect, at least nobody can hog the blankets. Our room was nice, except for some reason we got put in a handicapped room, so it has a handicapped accessible shower, which is sort of weird because it's not attached to the wall, but since we're only hear for a night, not a big deal, just sort of an inconvenience. This hotel isn't in Amarillo, however, it's very south of the city area, which is great because it's nice and quiet and peaceful, but probably not the best place to stay if you want to be in the heart of everything. But overall, a very nice, comfortable, and affordable hotel. Probably a 3.5/5 stars.

Day One of the honeymoon, and we made it ten hours, in a car, without killing each ourselves or each other,I'd say that's a pretty good way to start the vacation.
It was hard saying goodbye to the kitties, knowing that we wouldn't see them for a month, and they were upset because they knew that something was up. I miss them already.
We got another little lie in this morning. We were on the road by 9am and our first stop was at Wal-Mart where I also picked up a new pair of trainers. An hour and a half later we stopped at Blue Hole which is an old cave system but the entrance has filled up with water and its roughly 130 meters deep and 80 meters wide and we were allowed to swim in it which was awesome and there was a rock that you could jump off. ...
... brought gifts and money for financial support. Later in the day we visited three other villages where a Texas family supports a school and we met with the students and teachers. It was incredible to see them show us their work and show it off. Later, we went to the Bible school sponsored by Betty Swann ministry. The results of her ministry has been profound. I am very proud over the years of Betty Swann trusting me to use my ...
... This was another area where Route 66 still goes through the town.
Traveling though the Texas panhandle took us by the Cadillac Ranch which has 10 Cadillacs buried hood first into the ground. The 25 years since we were here last has been ******* the cars and many are just a rusting shell. Visitors still come armed with spray paint to add their personal touch to the cars.
We made our goal of Amarillo and will continue our trek toward home ...
Explored Santa Fe in the morning, walking around the farmers market, through the street art exhibitions. Santa Fe has a nice vibe to it, with all it's architecture designed to match the mud-red Mexican buildings. Leaving Santa Fe we drove on to a town a couple of hours a way that has an oasis water spring. Known as the Blue Hole, 81ft deep and average temperature of 15 degrees. We had a refreshing swim, a nice break from the high temperatures. Driving on the Highway 40 until we ...
