Texas Hostels


Texas


Texas Comentários

I live about two miles from Tehuacana. I've been to numerous parties there -- it's a great place to go and drink some beer.
This is the most unusual place to find a hostel. Tehuacana is not even printed on most maps, as it is tucked way way back from any major highway and hidden between huge rolling texas ranchlands that look exactly like the paintings. There is nothing to do in this town other than go on long walks or sit in the old cemetary which and watch the amazing sunsets. This place is extremely peaceful. Quite possibly one of the quietest and most serene spots in Texas.
My father, Liston Posey was born in Tehuacana. When he was 8 - 12 years old, he climbed to the top of the bell tower and stood on the two criss-crossed pieces of iron,at the very top, and laughed. Been there more than a few times myself, and it scared me into a cold sweat to hear that story. I looked at the steps that went all the way up the bell tower one time and knew that my daddy was nuts when he did it.
Every March, Austin hosts South by Southwest ("SXSW"), one of the largest music festivals world. The music passes are very expensive, but there are enough free music shows going on every day to keep you busy, so it's worth coming even if you don't get a music pass. Just don't expect to be able to book a hostel or hotel unless you book your room maybe about a year in advance.
I have lived in Tehuacana since I was a little girl and it is peaceful and a beautiful little town. I had the best years of my life there -- made the best of friends there and I wouldn't change any of my childhood. It is full of trees and at spring there are bluebonnets everywhere. It is a pretty place.
I lived in Austin for nine years. Austin is very cool, except that it's so darned hot in the summer. Check out Barton Springs pool in Zilker park, an enormous spring-fed pool, always seventy degrees, perfect for a scorching day. A music reviewer for the Austin paper once wrote "Who's playing this weekend? Ho, hum, the usual embarassment of riches." No kidding. You can find live music any night of the week. Halloween in Austin is a sight to behold, thousands of people partying downtown.
