The best thing since sliced Cinnabon

Awoke after a great nights sleep, the trains have now turned into the usual sounds my brain recognises as a ‘standard sound’. Adam however was not as lucky, feeling quite tired after the trains blared all night. We jumped straight into tourist mode with our cameras and got the classic shots of the SRV statue and me, HT and I with the city in the back. There is a shop called Cinnabon that serves the most incredible original classic Cinnamon Bun, we all agreed we had never eaten anything like it before in our lives, a super sweet thick syrup with delicious cinnamon oozing out of all sides. We did a bit of shopping and ate some amazing Chicken and cheese wrapped in Jalapeņos and amazing single serve Nachos. Costing a total of $10. Still cannot get over how cheap food is in America!!!! We continued on our shopping spree and ended up walking 14ks in total. Our feet were not impressed, especially after walking all day in thongs!
We came home and promised ourselves we would get ready to go out and play mini golf. 2 hours later we awake from a sneaky zazi and mustered out of bed. Holly’s tummy was not feeling so well after all the different types of food we had eaten, Coffee, Cinnabon, Frozen Yogurt with many different toppings, Wine, Chicken and Nachos. It was easy to see why we were all feeling a bit queasy. Holly was amazing in her powering on to the mini golf, even after several toilet stops along the way.
The Peter Pan themed mini gold had been around since 1948 so it was definitely a part of Austin culture and as we played our round of 18 there were many other Austinians taking part while drinking from there eskies. Don’t be alarmed, it's ok to drink, as long as it's not glass! There were some very entertaining holes with the loop de loop and massively unnecessary themed animals made from concrete. It was a fantastic round with AH taking the winning score.
P. Terry’s was our next stop and our final meal in Austin, Texas. A burger bar made to show McDonalds that a burger could be made without it tasting like a soggy piece of cardboard and for a reasonable price. For $4.95 we got the classic Cheese Burger, fries and coke. The burger was scrumptious with fresh crunchy lettuce and a delicious angus patty with their special sauce. We went home with happy bellies and caught some Z’s.
