Hi, my name is Chris, and my co-blogger’s name is Jess. We started Blogging Globe Trotters after meeting at an ‘ole timey’ hotel called the Best Western Lubbock in Texas.
Chris: Whilst, I take nothing away from Lubbock (we named our domain after it), I only hitch-hiked there because I had run out of money and luckily (or so I thought at the time) a friend in Dallas told me they could get me a steady job for a few months on a cotton farm – I thought I was sorted. Well it seems after making the long trip to a random farm, in ole’ Lubbock, some lady had taken my job, so poor and frustrated I was forced to search for accommodation and the Best Western and there I settled for the night.
Jess: I was traveling through beautiful Texas having an ammazzing time when I met this guy in a town nearby Lubbock – we got along quite nicely, and well, he asked if I wanted to head back with him to Lubbock in a few days and work on a cotton farm. I needed a bit of extra cash, so I thought why not. I recall him telling me he would try to contact some other guy who had the job to tell him the “position was no longer available”.
The night we arrived in Lubbock, we headed into the city…and things got a little cray cray. Needless to say, when things get cray cray in Lubbock you end up at the Great Westen Lubbock for a night cap.
I met this guy called Chris at the bar that night and we shared such a similar passion for adventure and travel we wanted to start something where everyone could share their stories and experiences….so yeh that’s how we met, and that’s why we are doing this.
