What I did
We were running late to the RV hire and Selina was so kind to help us and stay back after hours for us to take our camper van. She had her son’s baseball game so we didn’t want to make her late! The van was ridiculous, the size of a bus. It had one pop out on the side and had 7 seat belts. It was a brand new Ford E450 with a V10 motor, serious shit. It had all the modern features and plenty of room
I started driving, sitting on the left hand side of the vehicle, and driving on the right hand side of the road. Extremely weird, even more stressful when we were relying on the blue dot of an iPhone map. After several missed turns and after mounting the curb we made it to Fortworth RV park. We had our first experience in a Super Target, an incredible store combing both Target, Coles and Liquor Land.
After stocking up on the essentials we powered to a restaurant recommended to us called Del Friscos. It had the most incredible service and the side salad was incredible, with its avocado dressing and crunchy bacon on top. Holly and I ordered the 6oz fillet. Cooked to perfection, they even made us cut it open when served to check that it was cooked right. One of the best steaks of my life. We went home at 11pm and crashed again. We were nannas, but we didn’t mind.
