Travel Wish List
Wishful Thinking: A Holiday Trip to TexasMonday, June 11, 2012 Mary Anne Velasco
Time check: twenty minutes to ten. In two hours, I will be meeting a couple of friends for lunch and I’m quite excited about it but before hitting the shower, protocol first --- fix myself a cup of hot cappuccino, check my e-mail, blogs and Facebook inbox just to make sure I am not missing something important. A number of mails from blog advertisers [always a good sign to start the week], a few comments on my blogs that are awaiting moderation and FB PMs from my friends are my morning greetings so far for today. It smells like I am going to have a busy week after all.
So while on FB, a friend who’s in the US for a short stay has posted cool photos of their beach getaway. I wonder if they are also going to check out Lake Travis located in Texas and rent one of the condos in downtown Austin [http://theaustonian.com/gallery] before they finally fly back home to Sweden. I’ve seen a photo of the lake on Wikipedia and it sure looks like a good lake beach to me!

A vacation in Texas sounds perfect after the cold dark long Swedish winter months, don’t you think? I’ve always dreamed of spending at least a week in Texas with Bebe and meet some friends who now reside in the area. Booking a flight is easy and hopefully, we’ll be able to get a nice deal. Where to stay? That’s not an issue at all. With lots of hotels or downtown Austin condos for rent, we’re definite that we can find a relaxing accommodation plus a well planned holiday itinerary to complete the package.
Now, I’m pondering --- when will our trip to Texas happen? Soon, I hope!
Okay. Time to get that warm shower, dress up and meet my friends downtown. Oh, and have I mentioned that we’ll be having lunch in a Thai restaurant that is awesomely situated right next to a lake? What a beautiful Monday!
