  • (electronic music)

  • - Hi, we're Joel and Lia.

  • - And this is gonna be a recap of our time in Texas,

  • what we loved about it,

  • what we didn't love about it.

  • - We realized that we didn't actually do like a roundup

  • - Yeah.

  • - Of the holiday.

  • Should we call it a holiday?

  • It was kind of a holiday,

  • but it was a content holiday.

  • - Yeah.

  • - We went to Texas knowing that we were going to film

  • as many videos as possible while we're out there.

  • - Yeah.

  • It's one of those weird things, isn't it?

  • Because obviously this is our job,

  • videos earn us money,

  • so it was like a work thing,

  • but it was also a fun thing to do,

  • so it was like a working holiday, I guess.

  • - Exactly.

  • And I think people that don't really understand YouTube

  • might be like wait, what?

  • Your job is to go to Texas.

  • Who's sending you there?

  • And we're like oh no,

  • we're sending ourselves there--

  • - Yeah, they're like who's paying for it?

  • - Because we know it's gonna be really fun.

  • - [Together] We're like we're paying for ourselves.

  • (chuckling)

  • - And they're like, right.

  • It's a work trip?

  • - Yeah.

  • - Oh my God.

  • - They don't get it.

  • - Anyway.

  • - But, because it was a work trip,

  • we didn't necessarily do all the things that people

  • would do on a holiday or a vacation as you would say.

  • We did still have a good time.

  • - Yeah, definitely.

  • I think everyday, I'd say everyday was,

  • there was definitely good fun everyday.

  • - I definitely agree and I think that's because

  • it was seven days.

  • - Yeah.

  • - That's what we both really liked.

  • We went to New York, New Jersey for 16 days

  • and it was too long.

  • - It was too much.

  • - It was too long.

  • - You know, if it's short and crammed,

  • we work really well under pressure.

  • - Yeah.

  • - If someone's like,

  • Joel and Lia you've got seven days to make as much happen,

  • we will make it happen.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But if they're like, you've got two weeks we'll go,

  • should we go shopping today?

  • - Yeah (chuckling)

  • - Like we just didn't even dream of doing that in Texas.

  • 'Cause we didn't just go,

  • let's spend the whole day shopping.

  • - The only time we went shopping was on the last day.

  • And we were like,

  • let's treat ourselves.

  • - [Together] And we got a massage!

  • - Ooh.

  • - Oh my God.

  • - Actually, that was the best part about Texas.

  • (laughing)

  • - A proper holiday on the last day.

  • Actually the worst day was when we checked out

  • of the Airbnb and we had all those hours.

  • - Oh my God.

  • - So we sat at the airport we were like,

  • we're going to check in to an executive lounge

  • and just pay to be in there.

  • None of them would let us in.

  • - Yeah, they wouldn't.

  • - None of them would let skinny legends into their lounge.

  • - They were like we're not letting anyone in

  • since it's quite busy except if you're traveling

  • first class-

  • - If you're a member of any these clubs.

  • And we were like

  • - [Together] No.

  • - So we just sat in the airport lounge

  • for probably about five hours.

  • - Not even a lounge, it's just airport like-

  • - Luckily, we found two seats next to a plug socket

  • (laughs)

  • and we raced that man there and he tutted and walked off.

  • We're like you snooze you lose.

  • - Snooze you lose.

  • Like, you know, Usain Bolt to the chairs.

  • - Yeah.

  • - It was so quick and then I had to watch the chairs

  • while you got food and vice versa.

  • - And the food was so expensive.

  • - The food was very expensive.

  • - 'Cause it's the airport.

  • - Yeah, I got Texas barbecue that day it was 16-

  • - Yeah, I got a sub.

  • - Oh, you got a sub!

  • - 16 for a barbecue?

  • - Yeah, shocking!

  • - Shocking.

  • - 16 for a little anyway,

  • but let's go into what we really, really liked about Texas.

  • - Yeah, I think we should probably clarify by saying this is

  • what we liked and didn't like about Austin

  • - Oh yeah.

  • - Because I know that it's not,

  • the title of this video will be

  • the things we liked and disliked about Texas,

  • but really it's about Austin.

  • - Really yeah, because that's where we went apart

  • from the day we spent in San Antonio.

  • - Yeah, which was great.

  • - That was a good day.

  • - Yeah.

  • - There were so many fails that day.

  • - I think that was one of my favorite things actually.

  • - What, getting the bus?

  • (giggling)

  • - Apart from, once we got there,

  • the bus was obviously horrific.

  • (laughing)

  • But as soon as we got there,

  • margaritas by the river,

  • we were very tipsy having the best time like chatting

  • to people as they walk by.

  • - That was so funny.

  • - It was so good and then the rodeo was a let down.

  • - All of those cadets.

  • - But I think the best moments were margaritas by the river.

  • - That was so funny.

  • - That was just so funny.

  • - Joel, we were like chatting about really

  • inappropriate stuff like stuff that would not go on camera.

  • - Yeah, we would never talk to our parents about.

  • - (laughing) It was so bad.

  • We were like oh my gosh,

  • imagine if anyone recognized us right now

  • and they were like,

  • sorry, what filth just came out of your mouth?

  • - [Together] Oh it was horrific.

  • - But that's what happens when two skinny legends

  • drink margaritas.

  • - I know.

  • Oh my God.

  • - That was so funny,

  • of course none of that was filmed.

  • That was just like in the moment.

  • - Yeah, but we rarely have conversations like that

  • when we just decided to do it in the middle of,

  • like in the middle of the day, public-

  • - San Antonio, so funny, by the river.

  • - But, really funny sipping on margaritas.

  • I really liked that.

  • - Yeah.

  • - What did you love about Austin or Texas as a whole?

  • - In general, I think overall,

  • the biggest ding, ding, ding was the people we met.

  • Almost everyone

  • - Yeah.

  • - Was accommodating, kind

  • - Yeah.

  • - And interested in us.

  • - Yeah, that was so nice.

  • - And it was a really nice feeling

  • like that people were just interested in you,

  • and why you're here and what you're doing.

  • Okay, it was kind of hard to sometimes explain what we're

  • doing there, 'cause were like we sent ourselves here!

  • - Yeah. - For our channel.

  • - Do you remember that woman in Souper Salad?

  • - [Together] Aw.

  • - The waitress, she was so lovely.

  • - She loved it, she loved it, she was cute.

  • - And she gave you a hug!

  • - Yeah! - At the end.

  • - Yeah, we just got along really well and then,

  • - Yeah.

  • - She's not a legend, she doesn't follow us,

  • she was just a really sweet waitress.

  • - Yeah.

  • - And she did a great job and we had a good day,

  • we gave a hug after.

  • - I know. - She was lovely.

  • - She was so nice.

  • - The reason why this is like ah,

  • is 'cause that would just not happen here.

  • - Oh no.

  • And like, in a way we wouldn't want it to happen here

  • 'cause living here, we'd be like

  • oh we don't have time for this, it's just annoying.

  • - Yeah.

  • - But I think because we're on holiday,

  • it was like oh we can relax, we can spend more time

  • chatting to people - Yeah.

  • - And it was nice to have that relationship

  • - We were in holiday mode, even though we were working.

  • - Yeah.

  • - And what would you say you loved, like, overall?

  • - I can't put it into words, it was just the general vibe

  • that I got there that I,

  • sorry to everyone from Florida,

  • I've been to Florida loads of times,

  • but I've preferred Texas like the vibe.

  • - Oh, - The public streets.

  • The like, the way it was designed,

  • sort of laid out, everything felt bigger,

  • more space which I really like.

  • Which I've heard everything's bigger in Texas.

  • - Okay.

  • - Where I've been in Florida,

  • everything feels quite spaced out but then it is

  • spaced out in Austin, but it just-

  • - But you did say a lot whilst we were there

  • that you were like I just really like the vibes here.

  • - Yeah!

  • - And Joel was the one going online and being like

  • I wonder how much it would be to live here?

  • - Yeah!

  • - And like I wonder if I could spend some time here,

  • or like, you were always going like the vibe,

  • I just feel like, good here?

  • - Yeah, it was something I can't put it into words.

  • - Something about the vibe?

  • - It was just the vibe of the place that,

  • I got really good vibrations from Texas (clapping)

  • - Like the vibrations were lit.

  • - Yeah, they were seriously lit.

  • - And therefor, you were lit.

  • - I was lit.

  • - And as a result of that, I was lit!

  • - You were lit, so it was just a lit trip.

  • - It was so lit.

  • (laughing)

  • - Honestly I think there's probably a word for that

  • but we just don't have it in our vocab.

  • - Yeah, no.

  • Talking about the spaced out thing,

  • you were saying that that was one of your negatives?

  • - Yeah, I think for me I felt like we have to take Ubers

  • everywhere, we have,

  • If you don't have a car then you're limited,

  • and because we didn't get a car,

  • I felt like there were some things we couldn't do.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So that's why that was probably one of the biggest

  • negatives for me was like,

  • Oh I love it and I wanna explore everything and,

  • - Mm-hmm.

  • - But we don't have a car and we can't.

  • - Yeah, and I think that's really sad because

  • for people that can't drive which I know is

  • probably rare in America, but in the UK

  • there's lots of people who can't drive,

  • so it's like what are you supposed to do?

  • - Yeah. - I guess get Ubers.

  • All of you guys would be like,
