The next morning, we headed on to Austin. We've been wanting to go there for a while now. It seems every magazine you pick up lists Austin as one of the top cities to visit or top "foodie" cities. Since Will & I are aspiring foodies, we were itching to get out to Austin & experience the food scene. One of our first stops was at a local coffee shop, Houndstooth Coffee, where the baristas began listing off restaurants and bars that we should hit up while we were in town. I won't list all of the places we ate & went, but let me tell you we eat WELL. Austin, we loved your charm & eclectic feel; we will most definitely be back.
One of many cups of coffee on this trip.
Awesome pizza in SoCo.
Second Bar & Grill- loved eating outside!
Hotel San Jose-check it out. Awesome location & wonderful hotel.
Our last stop was Corpus Christi to visit one of our good friends, Ben. We loved getting to see him & seeing where he works. Ben works at a high-end gun shop in Corpus. He also is currently living on a sailboat. Dream bachelor pad? Pretty much. I think Will was a little jealous & we fully enjoyed laying on the deck & admiring all the boats.
Observations about Texas: everyone owns a truck. whataburgers are everywhere. gas is cheap. and mexican food is served for breakfast.
