i left my heart in austin
right before we arrived in austin, out came a rainbow and sunshine to greet us. it was a good omen
because austin turned out to be tied with nashville for my favourite place on the trip so far.
we stayed at the austin motel on south congress.
i loved this place, a real retro/rock and roll feel with an amazing pool.
the only place i'd want to stay if i ever came back to austin!
the shopping on south congress is amazing,
great vintage (esp. feathers where i bought the levis shorts above) and
great contemporary clothing stores (esp. co star where i bought my billabong star sweater)
above: taking some shots in the mirror before heading out to the pool. i love oversized threadbare tees as cover ups, so cozy.
the tiles in our room were so beautiful, i'd love something like that in my house one day.
so many cute houses around south congress, gorgeous plant life too.
there was a mobile pet adoption truck amongst the array of food trucks on the street.
these little guys below were available to take home. so cute!!!!
so much great food in austin. below is an amazing grilled pineapple and avocado quinoa salad from snack bar
and my old school tacos (tomato, avocado, beef and cheddar) from izzoz.
the best non-fish tacos i've ever eaten, maybe the best tacos ever.
dock and roll, home of lobster rolls and sweet potato tater tots and izzoz the taco mecca
after two nights in amazing austin we headed north to lubbock for the night and then westward. some shots from the road, look at the wall of cows!
stay tuned for new mexico....
