After a day of flying – or of waiting in airports for that delayed next connection – arriving home can seem like just another bleary-eyed burden: schlepping the baggage, loading the trunk, finding our mazelike way out of the lot. How delightful, then, to arrive at the parking toll booth to a Texas-sized smile and an Austin, Tejas, welcome, 24 hours a day. We’re not sure whether it’s just the airport training or, more likely, an abundance of local workers who want to make certain travelers know they’re coming home – no matter where they live – to the friendliest spot in Texas. ’Cause as we all know – if you’re not from Austin, you’re just passing through. Bienvenidos!
