Farewell To Austin

farewell Austin Texas

About 6 months ago, I wrote a post about making it to Austin. I talked about making the move from Arizona and did a quick farewell to the great times I had there. Well guess what?

It’s time to move on yet again. My girlfriend and I are moving across the country tomorrow so I thought I would share my thoughts and adventures I had here in Austin.

An Awesome City

I must say, Austin is by far one of the coolest cities I’ve ever been to. It’s got a unique feel about it and has some crazy things you would never see anywhere else.

It was here in Austin that I fell in live with breakfast tacos and Mexican Coke. Both are delicious, especially when you mix them together.

However, the city definitely has some infrastructure issues. I’ve never seen traffic as bad as the highways here in Austin. It seems like both directions are at a stand still all day everyday.

Other than traffic, it really is an amazing city. I love what downtown has to offer and how friendly the people are here. That’s one thing I will definitely miss about the city.

Who knows, I might end up back in Austin again someday. We will see…

The Best Of Austin

Below are some of my favorite posts from here in Austin:

The Congress Bridge Bats

One of the things Austin is known for is the Congress bridge bats. It’s pretty crazy that so many bats call downtown Austin their home for a good portion of the year.

The Most Interesting Academy

I must say, this was the first time I ever attended a party in a castle. It was pretty sweet and was free…what more can you ask for?

The Austin Skyline

One of my favorite things about Austin is the downtown area. I love the skyline, even if it is pretty small compared to other large cities. Check out this post for some great HDR pictures I took.

The Texas Capitol Building

Like mentioned above, I love downtown Austin. One of the things that really sticks out is the Texas capitol building. I managed to go inside and take a quick tour and snap some pictures. It’s an awesome building!

The ROT Motorcycle Rally

I’ve never been much in to motorcycles, but I was pretty impressed with the parade they put on. I’ve never seen so many bikes in one place before.

National Trails Day

Of all the events I attended in Austin, this was my favorite one. It felt good to help clean up the greenbelt and remove a ton of garbage.

Where To Next?

So where are we off to? Stay tuned for a new post next week and I’ll fill everyone in. Here’s a hint: we have about 20 hours of driving to do this weekend so wish us luck.

    I’m gonna make two guesses as to where you’re going:

    1) San Diego, CA

    It’s about 20 hours away, it’s sunny, super close to Mexico, and you’ve been there before so it’s kinda familiar and it’s close to LA and Vegas.

    2) Chapel Hill, NC

    College town, east coast, 20 hours away.

    If I had to bet, I’d say San Diego.

      Good guesses. I love San Diego, just a tad expensive for me and a little cooler than I prefer. As far as NC goes, brrr lol.

      We ended up going for Florida. So far, I’m loving it. Nothing like having it 84 degrees on your Birthday in December!
