We made it back safely to Austin! I have to say that I really like the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. It is probably the nicest small airport that I have ever been in. It’s set up really well. They have great little shops there. All the food in the food court is based on Austin area restaurants. Mike ate at the Salt Lick and I ate at Matt’s El Rancho! I got the Bob Armstrong dip, which I have to say is much better at the actual restaurant, but that’s to be expected.
The airport also has cute little stores that have Austin specific things. They even have an Austin City Limits store, where you can buy cd’s or dvd’s of past artists that have performed on ACL.
Another great thing about the airport is that they got our luggage out really quickly. Usually, you have to wait around for about 20 minutes before they start unloading. This is not the case in Austin. By the time that we got to the baggage area, the luggage was already coming out.
The airport is doing their part to Keep Austin Weird!
Bob Armstrong (not Lance’s brother) was commissioner of the Texas Land Office back in the 1970s.The only thing most people remember about him is the dip.
