I can’t believe that it has already been three months since we got back from Mexico. While I am loving having a home base here in Austin, Texas, my itchy feet are still very alive. In short, I’m getting a bad case of “GET ME OUTTA HERE!” – even if it is just for a little while.
And just in the nick of time we have a couple of things we’re looking forward to over the next couple of months. (Good thing too because I was starting to go a little nutty.)
August 19-23: San Mateo County & Silicon Valley
I’m heading out West to check out what there is to see and do with the lovely people at the San Mateo County Silicon Valley Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. We hit 25 consecutive days over 100F/38C and I’m ready to grab my hoodie for some 70F/21C weather. California here I come!
September 6-8: Portland, OR
We’re heading to our sister city, Portland! Shaun and I have never been to Oregon before and I can’t wait to feast my eyes on some greenery, great food trucks, and a bike in movie with Hostelling International USA. Do you guys have any suggestions for what we should do while there? Would you like to meet up for a beer at one of the many breweries (that I plan on parking myself at)?
September 16-18: Washington DC
I don’t know how on earth I keep finding myself here but this time it is for an AMAZING purpose. I, Erica, get to be the badass wedding photographer for some of my favorite people in the whole wide world – Mike (Art of Adventuring) and Steph (Twenty-Something Travel). I’m sure there will be shenanigans. I cannot wait to be there for one of the most important days of their lives.
October 18-21: Rockdale, TX
Remember Flipside? We’re heading back out to Rockdale for Art Outside, an art festival with music, live performance art, painting, vendors, hoopers, DJs, aerial silks, dancing… and well, everything that makes me feel glad that I’m alive. Not really sure if I’m going to document that one. I’m starting to realize that, while I love this blog, I do tend to miss out on just experiencing.
And if we can get our air conditioning fixed, we’re hoping to get some time out in Marfa, Texas along with Big Bend National Park for some camping and possible rafting. There is so much to do in Texas and I can’t wait to show you more!
While I do love having a paycheck coming in, I can tell that I’m definitely a gypsy at heart and need to get away every now and then. What are your upcoming plans? What adventures do YOU have planned?
