Bucket List // Austin, TX.

Okay so traditionally a Bucket List is a list of things to do before you die, but in my case, it’s just a list of places I want to travel to. I guess you could say that I’d choose Paris over taking French classes, Bali over bungy-jumping, a Croatian cruise over getting my boat license, etc etc. I feel very lucky to have travelled so much already, we have covered a bit of ground since hopping on our first international flight 5 years ago, but with every one place you visit, there are ten more places you wish to go.

AUSTIN // I have had Austin on my Bucket List since first reading the Bleubird blog by Miss James. Originally Miss James and her family resided in Austin before moving to Nashville where they live now. Her blog is all about her family (husband + four kids) and their every day lives, told through some of the most amazing every-day photography I have seen! It’s enough to make you envy of her, and it was definitely enough to make me add Austin to my list! And we can’t forget that Austin launched the likes of Janis Joplin and Willie Nelson – wow!

Lonely Planet Says // An eclectic pick-and-mix of retro funk and new-age entrepreneurial spirit, Austin’s best side is a mystic soup of social consciousness and capitalist development, tattoo-covered artists and internet millionaires. Quality of life reigns supreme. Here even the buttoned-down businessmen are likely to take a day off to go swimming in spring-fed pools, jogging along Town Lake or kayaking on the river. Almost any night here you can listen to live indie rock, jazz-funk, alt country, punk ska, acoustic rhythms, Latin sambas, Tejano trumpets, world  beat…shall I go on? All this coolness has not gone unnoticed. Locals are  concerned that too many cooks are spoiling the broth as more people continue to  migrate here and suburbs spread further north. ‘Keep Austin Weird’ extol local  bumper stickers, and so far the town isn’t overly gentrified – and the  restaurant selection has ­noticeably improved.
