You have heard the slogan "Everything is bigger in Texas” – Texas is the second-largest state (after Alaska), is actually bigger than France. Before Texas was a state, it was a Nation, thus the nickname The Lone Star State, originated from the star on the 1836 flag of the Republic of Texas. And our home for five wonderful years!
This is a real place, they actually still exist! We found it in a little Texan town called Flatonia. A name that reminds us about fairy tales, and in a way Flatonia is a place far, far away.. around 1300 people live here, and the town is known for its German and Eastern European heritage and the local “Czhilispiel” festival; the festival, named after Czech people who like to eat chili.
