#OnTheRoad On Instagram: Gadling At SXSW In Austin, Texas

As beautiful at they may be, it’s time to say so long to serene beaches and howdy to the heart of Texas as we shift Gadling’s Instagram feed from a Hawaiian paradise to the raucous party that is South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin.

Each year, thousands descend on the city – adding upwards of 300,000 to Austin’s population – to discover new music, attend industry panels, tackle food trucks and realize that they too can pull off a pair of cowboy boots.

Throughout this week, I’ll be riding the whirlwind of all-day parties and food truck treats – and maybe even a few eye-of-the storm moments, documenting some of the beautiful landscapes of Ladybird Lake and Barton Creek Greenbelt, where lucky locals indulge in an awe-inspiring oasis busy with a different kind of crowd – wildlife.
