Austin is geared towards the outdoors. Even in the blazing hot summer, the mornings and nights are consistently outdoor-friendly. You may want to duck inside during the heat of the day, but you can reliably enjoy your favorite trail in the morning and your favorite coffee shop + beer garden at night.
But today, it is 37℉, the November rain is here — and my brother is visiting town expecting nice weather. 😆
Here’s the quick list of things I put together for him to do while stuck in “sunny” Austin during a bout of winter. It’s kind of specific to him, but you might like it too.
Here’s how to find Seljavallalaug pool: From Reykjavík, Iceland, drive two-and-a-half-hours along the coast. Then park and hike 20 minutes past some glaciers, volcanoes, and a waterfall. 😮 Now jump in!
I’ve been sitting with this theory for a while that what matters most is who you are when all your stuff is stripped away – your house, your car, your bank account. Who are then then?
I think Sophia Loren is right by focusing in on your skills and your positive impact – and tying that to eternal youth. 🤩 Have you noticed that great musicians like Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and Paul McCartney just keep going and going?
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love.
Must be back in Texas. 😊 Best time of the year here (except spring). Also, way to go, Astros! Yeah the Longhorns had more fans here 🏈 but the ‘Stros are the champs! ⚾️🏆 @kariwakay #armadilloden #austin #texas #beergarden #outdoorlighting #shotoniphone #nightphotography via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CkoCf90pNzo/
If you’ve tried to hit a 90 mph pitch (which I did once or twice at a batting cage), you know exactly what he’s talking about. You can’t even see the ball at that speed much less think about hitting it.
What are some other things you can’t think and do at the same time? Offhand I’m thinking of skateboarding, singing, dancing, playing guitar, shuffling a deck of cards, telling a joke…
