I arrived in Austin a day later than expected because the flight in my connecting city, Charolette was overbooked. I gave up my seat in exchange for a $400 flight voucher, meal coupon, and a night in a hotel, good deal to me!
And look at the hotel-a suite all for me!
Breakfast, also grabbed an apple and coffee:
11 am the next morning I was in Austin, made it to my friends house, settled in for a bit and began to explore.
Things I like about Austin so far-
-love the music scene
-Caesar Chavez path along the river
-the capital building
Things I'm not so found of:
-The random guinea hen that started chasing me in the North Loop, later found out that my friend had a similar experience with the bird when she lived in that area
-Walking not really an option here. I walked to the bus stop yesterday and ended up having a 20 year old basically run after me so he could talk, ah weird (my friend lives about 2 miles northeast of downtown so it's more residential or large roads)
-The traditional mexican/taco stands are not vegetarian friendly or mold diet free friendly ;)
Off to quick round of pilates and onto ACL!
