Austin On Foot Before Chillin In The Warehouse

Well, we arrived in Austin, Texas yesterday after two uneventful flights (Calgary – Houston and Houston – Austin).  We were not able to sit together on the flight down from Calgary however, given that we were traveling standby we can’t complain.

We almost didn’t get on the flight in Calgary because we turned up 1 hour before the flight – a big no-no when you are flying into the USA nowadays.

Fortunately the guy at the gate was very accommodating and he checked us in.

After a short cab ride in from Austin to the Hilton, we settled into our room and got into bed reasonably early.

This morning we woke up around 11.00 am and headed off to see some of the sights of Austin.  It is quite a small city (we are to use to Hong Kong now!) so it was easy to walk around it.  It was quite a cold day so we rugged up and headed out for a Starbucks before starting our walking tour.

We headed up Congress Avenue and checked out the Capitol Building before walking down to the Warehouse District for lunch.  We found a fantastic Mexican restaurant (Austin is full of them because it is so close to the Mexican border).

We walked off lunch by heading down to the Colorado River and taking a look at the waterfront and the wonderful apartments and restaurants located by the river.  We also managed to run into a few squirrels along the way.  They are very curious and very cute.

It started to rain so we headed back to a hairdresser we saw (The Princess wanted to get her hair trimmed up) in the Warehouse District.

Sandra had her haircut while I took in a coffee at a nearby coffee shop – my beautiful Princess (complete with the new haircut) joined me for a hot chocolate after having her new look created!!  Very sexy.
From the WH district we headed back to the hotel and caught up with a range of our business partners that had flown in from Calgary for our Agel “Go Diamond” weekend which starts tomorrow afternoon.

Into bed at a reasonable hour tonight.  Yeah!!!!!
