Dad and DW gave us gift certificates to take a Segway site-seeing tour in downtown Austin. I was really nervous about actually being able to operate that intelligent piece of machinery.
Back in 2005, we rented scooters in Switzerland. I couldn’t get it off the kickstand, couldn’t get it started and then wasn’t able to steer it and ran into a fence. I just had images of that happening while on a Segway nearly 7 years later.
Thankfully, we had a great guide and both of us were doing figure-eights after about 5 minutes of instruction. First stop: the capitol!
We cruised all around downtown Austin and random people gave us high fives.
For lunch, we stopped at a food trailer park that we’ve never even seen before. We both picked items from a place called The Vegan Yacht. Great food!
After that, we did a little shopping and then picked up a pie from HomeSlice. We brought it home so we could watch True Grit on Netflix. Awesome food…not so awesome movie. Oh well. Netflix still r00lz.
