Whats up and welcome back to the best blog about western travel and my experience with my time away from the East Coast. Needless to say it has been an experience.  These folks have a different way of life and talk a little different to.  But thats cool once we established some common dialect boundaries so to speak.

Well enough about that. The first thing I want to discuss is some of my recommendations about transportation.  Apparently, Lubbock, Texas has a limited taxi demand.  You land almost in a field and there are defiantly not yellow cabs waiting to pick you.

So whats a person to do.  So we got on google and were going down the list looking for someone to pick us up and get us to the hotel.  A few spots down we found a limo and transportation company.  Needless to say they were awesome.  They knew the area and were there to pick us up in a sedan in about 15 minutes.

It was a good thing because we had no clue how to navigate the area.  Turns out they were a fairly reputable limo company.  They had awesome service and killer cars.  We ended up using them several times through  out the trip.

I would highly recommend them!!!!

So I guess my first recommendation if you are heading away from home.  Do your homework.  Its hard to enjoy a nice hotel when you can’t get to it. lol

Its also hard to find some good local dives to eat at with out talking to somebody. These local transportation companies know the landscape better than anyone.  Call them and start the conversation before you get off the airplane.  It makes it so much easier.  While we lucked into an awesome company.  You are probably not going to be so lucky.

I would also recommend Thai Pepper in Lubbock.  Its a little hole in the wall we hit up on the recommendation of the limo company that was killer.  I would put it up against in anything back home.  You would never guess as you are unloading at the back of a shopping center in the medical district.

So moral of the story…..Do a little research and don’t get stranded at the airport expecting a yellow cab to show up. Things work a little different out west.  Depositphotos_13883905_s
