Road Trip to SXSW by Bus and Train: Our Itinerary

It’s official!

We had made our final arrangements and had selected our route to South by Southwest to compete for the most Innovative Technology in the Startup Accelerator. It was a weeklong, yet fun, adventure where we departed from Boston, Massachusetts and rode all the way down to Austin, Texas. And all throughout we had made stops in 10 different cities within 6 distinct states!

It was an awesome journey for both Wanderu that was competing for the award, but also for you all who tagged along. Throughout our trip we had been giving away free gifts from our travel partners in each of our stops, hanging out with the locals and, of course, getting people to come along with us for the ride!
