I Was Told My Dad is Anthony Bourdain (pics)

My Pops was in town last week for a dad-daughter road trip.

When I was younger, we used to love going on adventures. Sadly, I grew up, we moved to different states and life got away from us. Recently we decided that we needed some good one-on-one time and do what we d0 best- have adventures. No significant others, no plans and not a worry in the world. We traveled to San Antonio and Gruene, but our Kennedy assassination vacation to Dallas was postponed to another time due to the devastating explosion in West, Texas, which nestles on the main freeway between Austin and Dallas.

Tomorrow I will write more in-depth about my father, but today I wanted to post pictures from the trip. A lot of people have pointed out that my dad looks like Anthony Bourdain. What do you think?

    Anthony Bourdain is all the rage right now, so it’s not a bad comparison. Your pictures are so fun! I want to frame the one of the boats at River Walk.

      Awww…thank you! I wish I had a camera other than my phone. Or an iPhone. 😉

    Haha! He does, especially through the Instagram filter, which makes it all look like his TV show. Funny enough, he doesn’t resemble him that much. I think he’s just tall, has a full head of gray hair, and gives off that same vibe.
