Place 79 – Day 2: Austin,TX – Jacob’s Well

Jacob’s Well

The weather wasn’t as warm today, but still plenty warm enough.

We planned to head out pretty early today, but we slept in a bit and then the bathroom was being used this morning so we couldn’t get showered, so we left around 12:00.

We headed out of Austin for 1 hour to a town called Wimberley. This town is home to Jacob’s Well, which is a large underwater cave which, during summer, people jump into.

The dark part of the water here is the well

This was named a well because it resembled one, back in the 1800s.

We were not here during the swimming season, but wanted to take a look.

We walked down some stairs which went through a nice tree covered walkway, which looked awesome.

We got down to the well and instantly noticed how tiny it was. On the photos the area looks large, but in actuality it was very small.

There were another couple there who were taking photos, so we had to work around them, but we got some pretty cool shots.

We left here after only 30 minutes, but did have a go on the swings they had there before we went.

Coffee, A Muffin & Big Tacos

We went for a coffee and a muffin in a really nice coffee shop called Blanco Brew in Wimberley.

We were really happy with the coffee shop. Incredible coffee, nice staff and a tasty muffin, which we got warmed up.

We left here and went for a taco each in a gas station, which apparently had really good tacos.

We thought they were alright, a little big and not enough meat, but the meat was good. Probably around a 7/10.

Playoff Hockey

We drove back home and then Curtis watched the first game of the Leafs playoff first round.

Whilst Curtis did this, Kim booked something really exciting for tomorrow, which will be fun! She then had to go out and get some lunch items for tomorrow.

Throwback Dinner

We had chicken pesto pasta for dinner, which is a travelling throwback dinner, but we went fancy and had red pesto instead, with a side of salad.

We watched the latest episode of Jane The Virgin and then went to sleep. Up at a decent time tomorrow!


This Time Last Year!

Place 49 – Day 370: Auckland – No More Work in NZ!

Curtis’ Day;

There’s really nothing to report on for Curtis’ last day at work! He did very little, other than at 15:10 when he started helping his boss with something which took about an hour or so.

After this, Curtis was driven home by his boss and he had to leave the car there, seen as it was a work vehicle!

Both of us;

Kim got back from work but forgot the prosecco she was bought as a gift so she went back to work to get that.

It was also Kim’s last day, but she had her Christmas party at ‘The Wharf’ not too far from our house.

Kim had a really good time at the party and everyone was complimenting her and saying she was great at her job, which is always nice to hear!

Curtis collected Kim from the party around 00:10 and he also picked up Kelsey.

Curtis drove Kelsey home and on the way back stopped at KFC for Kim, but they were closed. In replacement, we went to McDonald’s instead.

We got home, Kim ate her food and then we slept.

It’s so good to know we have no work left here as well as some really awesome things planned!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
