Texan Travels is a travel blog showcasing unique stays and experiences, as well as tasty restaurants, ideas for what to pack and how to save on all aspects of travel.


Hi! I’m Jac and I am the main voice behind Texan Travels. I am a 20-something blogger, currently based in Houston, Texas. Texan Travels has primarily showcased travel experiences with a focus on the budget. You can expect to see more detailed posts about how much was spent on a trip and what the money went towards. If you’re planning a trip to a particular destination I’ve been, you’ll have a good frame of reference for how much you’ll end up spending! Occasional guest contributors include my boyfriend and various family members.

New in 2020

For 2020, you can expect to find more unique stays featured on my blog. I’m partial to glamping style stays, so most accommodations or experiences I share will have some essence of glamour, a killer view or an amazing setting. We’re talking tiny houses on top of cliffs, safari tents looking out to the ocean and cabins set back in the forest. As always, you’ll find travel tips sprinkled throughout posts, ranging from parking tips to ways to save money on your airfare. Destinations range from within the state of Texas, to remote areas in the Caribbean and sheep farms in New Zealand.

More About this Texan

Texan-Travels-in-Grand-Cayman
My first cruise and my first time out of the country in 2014!

If you didn’t see it above, my name is Jacquelyn. I’m from a small town just south of Fort Worth, Texas, or Dallas as some people incorrectly refer to it as. There is a difference y’all. I went to school for a bit just north of Dallas before transferring to good ol’ Texas A&M University! Whoop! Don’t worry, I’m not red ass, I won’t be flooding this whole blog with my school spirit. BUT I will be introducing you to new words like whoop, red ass and, of course, y’all.

I graduated in 2013, moved to Houston (where I had gotten a job) and began my career in marketing (creative, not numbers). I’ve worked for a couple of start ups and other smaller companies. Currently, I own my own marketing consultant company, Studio No. 8, LLC.

If you’re still reading, here’s an extra tidbit about this blog, it will have A LOT of Texas posts. Because, duh, Texas is the greatest country there ever was. It’s larger than several other countries around the world and you can literally drive for 12 hours and still be in Texas. SO hopefully this part of the blog will be helpful to readers looking to come experience the grandeur that is the state of Texas!
