After arriving in Texas, our first stop was Austin. We have already checked out the hotel we stayed at, in part 1, and in part 2 we visited the Capitol Building. Our next stop in Austin was the Harry Ransom Center, on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. We were lucky enough to be there while The Alice and Wonderland exhibit was going on! The exhibit featured the celebration of 150 years of everything Alice in Wonderland. I am a huge fan, and this was one of the many highlights along our Southern Road Trip!
♪ In a World of My Own ♪ My sister, going down the rabbit hole! Don’t worry, she is in good company.Illustrator John Tensile did not like the way the illustrations looked in the very first edition, so that edition was pulled and new illustrations were printed. There are slight, but noticeable differences comparing the two. JoAnna and her radiant smile! The Salvador Dali illustrations were probably my favorite part of the exhibit!Beautiful, right!?
That Texas humidity, and my hair are not friends! haha
On the next stop, we visit Fredericksburg, Texas.

My sister and I embarked on a two and a half week road trip, through the South, this summer. To read part one, click here. Our first stop was Texas, and we spent about two days in it’s capitol. Austin is such a fun city, and I wish we had a little bit more time to sightsee and explore. Our Mom was born in Texas and before we left, she told us how beautiful the capitol building was. She was right! The capitol building and grounds are completely stunning. There are statues that represent Texas Rangers, Volunteer Firemen, and the men who fought in the Confederacy. In my next, and last post about Austin, will be all about the Alice in Wonderland exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center. The Ransom Center is located on the beautiful campus of The University of Texas at Austin.
