As someone who has lived abroad and traveled internationally, there are always things I miss from back home in Texas. If you’re planning a trip or are currently living abroad, I guarantee these are things you’ll miss about Texas:
Things You'll Miss Most About Texas While Living or Traveling Abroad
You'll miss hearing people say "Y'all" and "Howdy"
Nothing like a Shiner or cold Lonestar on a hot Texas summer day!
You'll miss Texas Football games
Grocery shopping at HEB
Shopping for groceries in a foreign country always made me sad because I missed MY HEB!
You'll miss Texas Bluebonnets & Wildflowers in the Spring
It’s impossible to find good Tex-Mex food anywhere else.
Nights out on Dirty 6th Street in Austin, TX
It’s a guilty pleasure, you can’t lie and say you don’t kinda love a good night out on dirty 6th Street
Late night runs to Whataburger
I don’t know how I survived hungover mornings abroad without breakfast tacos. This is one of the things I missed most about Texas.
Driving on the right side of the road
This only applies if you’re going to a country where they drive opposite of us 😉 It took me awhile to get used to it in Australia!
Those Hill Country Sunsets
Texas Hill Country sunsets are hard to beat. Check out my friend Shane’s Instagram for proof:

Haze for daze. The Saharan dust is here in full force and while it’s destroying the air quality (lots of sniffles!) it’s making for some pretty cool skies. This was last night just before sunset with the sun shining through all that haze .

You’ll be hardpresssed to find a two-stepping country bar in another country.
Swimming Holes > Swimming Pools
With so many amazing swimming holes just a quick day trip away from Austin, it’s no wonder we love them over pools!
Buc-ee’s has a cult following in Texas, no other rest stop compares! Photo below from Buc-ee’s website.
Kolaches for breakfast
Brisket, ribs, the sides… you’re going to miss it all!
