my austin experience, an iphoneography photo tour

My first trip to Austin was filled with plenty of meetings on gynecologic cancers, a decent amount of networking with some very smart people, productive brainstorming of ideas for work, and plenty of rest. I didn’t have a car, so my time there was limited to what I could explore in the downtown area on foot – except for one night when a good friend took me out for dinner.

I present to you my iPhone photos (mostly) of my Austin experience. My experience, other than meetings? Food.

    I so enjoyed your iphoneography tour!

    I just want to tell you (because no one can ever hear it enough) that you’re amazing. You’re smart, dedicated to your job, you save lives, run a blog, raise a family, and cook like a queen. You, my friend, are WONDERFUL 🙂

    Austin is very high on my list of places I want to visit and this post has only served to push it up a few places!

    First your post brought so many memories to mind, my hubby is an OB/GYN (not sure if you are) and all the medical conferences…anyway…those brussel sprouts, I am on a mission to recreate them!! Thank you.

      Those brussels are amazing, Cathy. I think their secret was the amount of bacon in it — tons. Not the healthiest dish, by far, but certainly the best Brussels I’ve tasted. I’m actually an oncologist, but I specialize in women with gynecologic cancers. Love having something in common with you (& your husband)!
