It’s been over a year since I took a “real” vacation. And let me tell you, that’s entirely too long! So during my much-needed week of vacation last week, I headed down to Austin for some rest and relaxation away from the big city (and work). This was the first time I’ve just let go and stayed in a really nice hotel (Radisson) downtown, right on Town Lake. At the last minute, I was upgraded to a wonderfully huge suite with two separate rooms, two TVs, a wet bar, a stunning view looking south over the Congress Street Bridge, and an incredibly comfortable king-sized bed. Take a look at my Austin, Texas photo set on Flickr.
