My wife and I will likely be moving to Austin soon with our children (7.5 and 3.5). We live in the Virginia suburbs of DC now, and really do not
enjoy it. We want to live in the city, but school quality is also a huge priority for us now. Can we have both of these things in central Austin?
My wife and I (and kids) will be in Austin for 2 or 3 days in August (19th - 21st). What are the activities/events/places/restaurants we should be sure not to miss? [more inside]
What can you tell me about Portland, OR? The good, the bad and the indifferent? [more inside]
I've been thinking about exposing myself and the family to the salutory benefits of living overseas (we live in the US now). The key question, of course, is where? I've heard some people speak reverently of New Zealand, but have never been there myself. Your suggestions and reasoning behind them would be welcome...
