What a fortnight!

So the parents left today, after two hectic, fun filled weeks. Here is a little bit of what we did.

We roamed SoCo & ate at Homeslice!

We watched the Counting Crows play at Auditorium shores, they were in town for SXSW.

We went to the Austin Rodeo. It was like nothing I have ever seen before!

We took in the beauty of Downtown Austin!

We enjoyed some Texas BBQ and frozen sangria at The Salt Lick...

We went to Mt Bonnell, If you live in Austin and haven't been you need to, I can't believe it took us 2 years.

We went Kayaking on Lady Bird Lake..My new favourite thing to do. My mum also got pooped on by birds! FUNNIEST thing I have seen in a long time.

We had our first experience with food trailers in Austin boy was it good.  If you are local you have to try Ms P's electric cock (SoCo) & Gourdoughs (South First).  Best friend chicken I've ever had, hands down.

Climbed Enchanted Rock.

We visited Fredericksburg, ate some German food, drank some German beer and ofcourse we went shopping.

Overall it was a fantastic two weeks, and I loved being a tourist in my own city, people should do it more often.

  1. We had such a fantastic time, was very sad saying goodbye to Austin but looking forward to seeing another part of America later in the year.
