#DownDiRoad goes #RounDiGlobe – Jacob’s Well – Texas USA

GREETINGS ROADIES! Sorry for shouting but I’m excited because the #DownDiRoad series just went international! Introducing the first installment of #RounDiGlobe. I’m on vacation in the States right now so I couldn’t come here & not do some exploring. I spent some time in Texas & visited a beautiful watering hole called Jacob’s Well. Jacob’s Well is in the Texas countryside, in a place called Wemblerley close to the busy city of Austin. It’s a natural artisan spring really, but it’s main attraction is a deep well, 13 feet wide & over 100 feet deep! Check out the visuals from the visit & do remember to subscribe to the website & YouTube channel…
