A is for ...

Austin

Newsflash!!
I enjoyed daily blogging so much in January, I've decided to continue into February.
The main reason is the theme. It's 'character' and, as was so helpfully pointed out on NaBloPoMo, this can mean characters of the alphabet. I thought I'd try to blog about 'places.' It figures, as I love to travel.
I still plan to continue with Thameside Tuesday. I enjoy that.

Some blog readers will know that A and I went on a Road Trip across the USA almost 2 years ago, to celebrate our 100th birthday ( we were both 50, in case you were wondering.)
It still remains in many ways the best 3 weeks of my life.
One place we visited that we have promised ourselves we will go back to was Austin in Texas





Live music on every street corner, it seems. Very tempted to try to be there for either of the big festivals - SXSW or City Limits.
We'll see ...

Great spin on the theme! And I'm incredibly jealous you went on a cross-country trip. That is definitely on my bucket list!

@ Brian - we loved it
@ Michelle - 3,500 miles in 3 weeks. We travelled from San Diego to Savannah via New Orleans. Wonderful trip!
