Treppin’ through the Bayou | Traveling for School and Work in Texas and Louisiana

Treppin’ through the Bayou
by Kelli Ellis

Out of the top 10 Most Memorable days in your child’s life, going to college is in the top 3, at least according to my 18 year old High School Senior. First day of Kindergarten, first puppy, and first plane ride all making the list, as well. In the spirit of her family and upbringing, our daughter has wings on her feet.  Traveling to Australia every year twice a year since infancy, she developed a love for global exploration. Like diehard treppers, we packed our bags and grabbed our laptops to begin our tour of colleges, like rockstars, 1.5 days in each city and move on….

Inevitably, I get us to the airport 1.5 hours early. After the check in and security process – we have time on our hands.  This is always a great time to recharge your electronics.  Take a look around and you’ll find most modern airports have charging stations. You never know how long you’ll be sitting on a delayed plane, experience rerouted flights or find yourself in an airport that’s not Trep Friendly…so charge up when you can!

An anomaly indeed. Perhaps it was the colorful cocktails with a slice of pineapple. Maybe it was the obvious decompression I felt when my feet his the sugary sand. Not sure. Don’t care. It was just great.
