Con 1. Gentrification

Pro 2. Tons of Local Businesses — Eye-Catching and Always Interesting

Con 2. You Might Need to Depend on Yelp for Reliable Dining

Pro 3. It’s Pretty Awesome for Biking

Con 3. Everything is CROWDED!

A Final Con: Why Austin isn’t the Best Place for California-Lovers to Move (and Where Is)

Texas Hill Country.



Wine country in Fredericksburg, TX.


Where Californian’s and California-Lovers Should Move Instead?

For this reason, I would recommend Cali-Lovers pick Florida instead.

Day Job Quitter + Long-Term Traveler

I quit my job as a designer to travel and do a bit of what I call “Life College.” This college is free, self guided, and is an investment in your future. 

What job do you really want to do? How feasible is it to get that job and how can you get started? What do you want out of your ideal lifestyle? What are you really working towards?

I’m taking a break to tackle all of these life planning challenges and (hopefully) come out the other side with a clearer vision and stronger spirit.
