Our Texas trip started with the funky city of Austin. The town isn’t very big but definitely worth a stopover. We enjoyed three things: strolling in the University of Texas campus, visiting the Texas Capitol Building and learning more about the Texan history at the Texas History Museum. Did you know that Texas was independent for nine years before deciding to join the USA?
Austin also has a lively bar and music scene. We passed by some inviting looking places. We opted for a coffee shop hangout at a stylish Starbucks at a Hilton Hotel complex. We went to the riverside and then bought dinner to enjoy at our Airbnb. We used the bus system which was a nice relief after a long day walking and exploring.
