Graceland: Austin, Texas
After seven hot hours, two severe farmer's tans and about five drive-through Starbucks we were finally able to Waltz Across Texas. We pulled up to Hotel San Jose just in the brink of time for our sanity. After too many questionable hotel rooms, that were just a bit to close to the interstate, we were elated to spend two days relaxing with poolside drinks and (finally) clean sheets at the San Jose. We were lucky to have a friend from the area who took us to a bunch of local spots, such as Barton Springs, a huge natural swimming pool in the middle of the city. We also had amazing thrifting adventures in the neighborhood surrounding the hotel. Basically, our stay in Austin was the perfect antidote for our delirium and only further secured our Texan obsession.
