Our Austin Trip

I wrote this draft on 10/3/16! I like the suggestions that I mentioned here. I just thought of sharing. I will check & update this post when I travel to Austin again.

Last weekend, we drove to Austin. It was like an exciting rollercoaster ride! We were like hippie vagabonds just roaming the streets, doing a lot of odd thingsSmile Dhyan is an adventurous guy, so he put up with us Winking smile

We booked our stay using Airbnb.com for the first time, since we figured it was cheaper than hotels. Also because, it was so exciting. You get to stay in quirky places like tiny home, RV, farm, whatnot! We should have planned in advance. Many would not accept our request since we had a toddler on board. Finally, we found a great place that accepted us. Funny thing we were already driving to Austin then – I know – adventurous !  Smile with tongue out Continue reading
