So I have been lacking lately due to a trip to America, coupled with a snowballing amount of work and looming deadline. But this week I’ve managed to take some chill time and finally getting to post some travel pics! This trip was an incredible experience for me in terms of overcoming many ‘firsts’ – first flight alone (I have always been able to share my travels with at least one other person), first time in Dallas (admittedly it was only the airport!), first visit to Austin, first time in Arizona, first time leading business meetings independently… Basically a lot! And although many if these were initially unnerving, it was a positively challenging experience and I loved every minute of it.
My first stop was to Austin, Texas for 3 nights where I took a drive by tour of quirky Austin, met some super friendly locals and worked with lovely colleagues based in the office out there. What I was most impressed about Austin was the variety of food. It is clearly a hub for upcoming street food as we drove by streets of people swarming and queuing for the latest food truck delights. Wurst Tex and Vietnamese Mexican were just a few concepts I spotted. If I had more time in downtown I definitely would’ve liked to waste away the day trying everything! All in all I would definitely recommend anyone to give Austin a visit, for it’s super friendly, chilled atmosphere and intriguing eats.
