Day 7- Austin Continued

In the morning, we went to Mount Bonneu, a place where you can have a look at the city’s skyline and Austin’s river. 🌳🌱🌷If you love nature, and want to get some really rad pictures, I highly recommend you visit this place! 👍🏻😊😊A few miles away from here, we discovered another beautiful park. I’m not really a long distance walker, but walking through these parks is such a surreal experience, that you find yourself traveling incredible distances without even noticing. In total, we walked 5km before heading over to the 360 bridge, which has an incredible overhead view of the entire city. 🤩🏙🌟After that, we found a nice little Hawaiian/ Mexican  restaurant which served enough food to keep me going the rest of the day. 🇲🇽🌯🤤Enormous portions seem to be a running theme in Texan restaurants. I had a monster burrito with cheese, and enjoyed the famous “chips and salsa” that can be found in any Mexican restaurant. 😭😁🤤With my belly full, I headed over to Austin’s river island, where I really saw Texans’ love for nature as well as animals. The place was filled with stags, deers, squirrels, birds, turtles, and dogs🐕🦌🐦🐶🐿. After getting our nature fix once again, we decided we needed some history, therefore, we visited the Texas History Museum. 🤓☝🏻We learned all about Texas’ 300 year history, such as the french explorers, La Sale discoveries in America, the Spanish Empire, the birth of Mexico, the relevance of Texas in the U.S. and much more. 🇲🇽🇪🇸🇺🇸There was even an exhibition on 90’s video games!! 🕹Austin is a city for young people, and nothing shows this more than the graffiti park. Where, independent street artists are allowed to showcase their art without the fear of any repercussions.  🌌👨🏻‍🎨👩🏻‍🎨
