Girls Trip to Galveston Part 1

Back in the middle of July me and my body building babes were group texting.  Amanda suggested that we get away for Lesly's birthday in July for a weekend at the beach in Galveston.  We all checked our calendars and were clear so I searched Airbnb and found a couple of options.   Once the group agreed I went to book and had the biggest problems with the site.  After going back and forth with support and not getting any results I said forget it....I have had the Airbnb app on my phone forever and love cruising the site and have had friends book through it but I personally never have and never will after such a horrible experience.  After a few fails the time to book was dwindling down we were wanting to go in less than a month so I wanted to get everything in order.  I immediately jumped over to VRBO  and found a cuter and cheaper beach house.  Booking was seamless.  Here is the listing that we chose https://www.vrbo.com/595953 I highly recommend using VRBO or also known as HomeAway and if you are in Galveston definitely check out this listing.  I will definitely be using this service again.  They even have an app that allows you to view your details, security codes to your house, speak with the owner, and view all other property details.  It was so simple and our rental exceeded our expectations.  It was 2 blocks or a very short walk from the beach and right down in the middle of all the sights of Galveston.

When it got down to going Amanda wasn't able to make the trip so Lesly and I loaded up our beach chairs, weekend bags and food and headed out Friday morning around 9.  We made it down to Galveston after stopping in Lufkin for a quick lunch around 3.  We made a Target run then checked into our house.  

The house was small but perfect for 2 or 3 people.  It was equipped with all the things we would need in a rental and was VERY clean!!  After unpacking we took no time getting into our swimsuits, packing our beach bags, and making the short walk to the beach. 

After several hours at the beach we headed back to the house to take a quick shower and put on some comfy clothes to head down to Pleasure Pier for some food and amusement park fun!

When on a girls trip you take a TON of pictures and everywhere is a photo-op!

I have a couple other pictures with this shark man from when I was little!  So fun recreating this picture as an adult. 

We rode a few rides but over did it with the first one right out of the gate.  We did one of those retro spin and twirl rides and made us both so sick!!!  We got to watch a beautiful sunset set over Galveston from the ferris wheel and even sat on a bench and drank a couple beers on our way back to the house. That night after a shower we headed downtown to get take-out pizza and some bread sticks.  After stuffing our faces and talking the night away we headed to bed to rest up for our next few days in Galveston celebrating the birthday girl!

Stay tuned for Part 2!
