The drive from San Antonio to Austin was not far. Maybe 2 hours with traffic. We stopped in a town 20 minutes from Austin called Kyle! I thought that was pretty cool to take my picture there. I probably had a total of 4 hours in Austin. Our first stop was the capital. We spent about 2 hours here. It is supposedly the biggest state capital in America.

We caught up with Tash and Zee again for a late dinner and drinks (they were staying down near South ...
... to spend some of the last night in Austin!!! =DDD After chillin for about an hour in the pool I went back up to the room to start packing. The room was empty as Marcus and Pelle hadn't returned yet. I put on some smooth jazz on the tv, had a chilled soft-drink and started to pack. Sometimes it's actually quite nice to get alittle time for yourself. :) Tomorrow starts the long journy home and to be honest I don't know how ...
