My “Sojourn” in Texas

Filed under: Austin, Texas — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — charlieprator @ 6:23 PM

What a strange feeling it was to be back in warm Texas after 6 months with the thought that this was only temporary. It was a vacation–not a return home.  I would be going back to live another 6 months abroad in vackra Sverige!

Knowing this, I made the best of my time there doing what every Texan should do knowing that their creature comforts would be gone soon enough:

  • I ate Taco Bell, numerous times.
  • Drank Dr. Pepper at almost every meal
  • Coerced myself to enjoy a Bud Lite (hard to do after drinking quality beers such as Heineken and Carlsberg)
  • Drove. Everywhere.
  • Floated the river. Twice.
  • Visited Austin. Twice.
  • Came close to re-negging on my decision on going back to Sweden whilst visitng Aggieland–four times.

Anyways, I could go on, but it’s time for the picture.  Whilst in Texas I had the awesome opportunity to attend Trey Ratcliff’s (Yes, that guy that does HDR that I always mention here, stuckincustoms.com) Photowalk, and it was such a great event.  My buddy Raul and I both went, met other avid (HDR) photographers, and had a small chat with Trey.   Here’s one of my results from that night:
