Yo Yo Yo! So think about all the cities you have been to in the US. How many have you ventured around? Whats your favorite things to do in them? It comes to you quick huh? Well, at least for me it does. I have been pondering it lately. I want to go to all the cities in the world and discover their hidden treasures.
When I think of my favorite city, its definitely Austin Texas. I love it. I think good local food, a fun-indie, vintage scene, such unique, eccentric ways of living, individuality and a great music scene is what really fuels the city. Especially the 2 festivals that are a major part of the Austin culture; SXSW and ATX. All of this mixed together creates the unofficial motto that was born in Austin, "Keep Austin Weird." (A polite request for all the locals to keep things local.) I always have a wonderful tour guide that shows me the best of the best in Austin, so I've never had an awful time. Every trip is a fascinating experience.
Last time I was in Austin, we ate a restaurant called Kenichi, Saras's job at the time. We ate some bomb ass sushi, drank sake and got to taste test all the AMAZING desserts. I also learned about Naked Sushi. Get nakey and lay on a table for a party of people to eat sushi off you? If your paying me thousands of dollars? and YES they are. So crazy! But I am not lying, its a real thing. You can check it out for yourself --------->
The trip I took before this previous one, we went for a lil stroll in the neighborhood Sara was living in, and she escorted us to this really cool junkyard/ backyard. The family had built a little house/cathedral fort out of all the materials and pieces they had collected in their yard, mostly made up of bicycle hubs. You could walk in it, up it, and it was an actual little building. It was pretty neat and creativity spiking at its highest. This is the kind of fun things you find in Austin.
When I went to Austin on my last trip, it was my 26th birthday. I had two things I needed to check off my bucket list while I was there; 1. To ride a mechanical Bull (seeing we were in a city that dominates in country music and cowboy boots, there had to be a bull around there somewhere) 2. To sing Karaoke. My night was very successful. First I completed the bull ride, did OK and then sang Karaoke at some bar, Weezer, "say it ain't so."Very Rememberable experience.
