Travel Blogs from Austin
Austin was less than 4 hours drive from Dallas. We arrived and went straight to Ladybug lake and read my book whilst Allana played guitar along side it. We got into contact with Jess Leckie and she was staying with her old Aussie housemate Ryan and his girlfriend Amanda. They were really cool people!
