Heidi and I have traveling down to a fine art. It may not look like it, but we know what we want with us when we go, and we load it all up so that whether we are staying in a low-dollar hotel, like we did on Friday night, or an historic B&B, we have everything with us to make it enjoyable.
For instance, we ALWAYS take our own coffee maker, coffee, cups, cream, and sweetener, so that our morning coffee is just right. Morning coffee is really important to both of us. She was a barrister for Starbucks for 12 years, so she knows what she likes in a coffee and what she doesn’t like. And I agree with her when it comes to coffee. Dark is the best, in bed before 6 a.m., fluffy if possible (fluffy coffee is blended on high, with coconut oil and MCT oil. It’s delicious.)
The point is that when we go stay at a place, it’s always special for us because we take what we need to make it like home. The Hardeman House in Nacogdoches, TX was one of those places we were able to enjoy for a night, and a morning filled with our own coffee. I also had part of the breakfast. We really enjoyed the antique setting, which is much better than the typical replicated feel of the modern hotel.

The Angelina Room was where we stayed. The other rooms had names as well. Angelina was an Indian of fame for the area back before Texas became a state.
Named after Davey Crocket, king of the wild frontier.
