Fiuh, finally arrived home from a long ride from Dallas to San Antonio.
It took me 5 hours to sit in the car and be nice the whole time. I went there with my family: uncle, aunts, grandparents, and 2 little cute cousins that you guys adore ;p lol!
I got a chance to travel to some places over there and a now I've got a lot to tell ya!
I really love the city
The first time I arrived there guess what I saw!
This little buddy appeared just right in front of our car, however, we failed to catch them. :) They looked so pretty especially realizing that we found them around 11 pm and this city is really cool that still lot of people was still hangin around !
The view from my room (15th floor) of San Antonio Town (Riverwalk area)
spinning around and lovin the riverwalk!
And Guess what! Dream came true! I went to meet Shamu, the killer whales, they're one of my favorite animal besides dolphin, fish, and frogs, oops! and hamsters too.
I went to seaworld on the second day on my trip to San Antonio
The entrance to sea world
some flamingoes and birds I saw. They're stunning!
and I finally went into Shamu's Dome
for me, Shamu's an amazing animal. They're a killer whale yet they can cooperate as if they're just
the tamest animal , or well act as if they're dolphin or so. They're just plain adorable :)
And by that time I got to see BABY SHAMU! It is actually big but not as big as the mom
I love it <3 it was cute when it swims
the right -est one was the baby shamu
and I also adore the Sea Lion show! They're AMAZING!
The lady, Mrs. Cookie and The detective tried to solve a case
me on the Texas Splashdown!
AZUL SHOW: Beluga, Dolphins, Birds, and Acrobats all in one!
I also LOVE this show!!!
me and Shamu Pretzel :) cute!
and I also watched COOL VIBRATIONS - water skiing
They're SO COOL! I want to be able to do that, but don't dare to do so :((
Best thing I've Played! : The Journey To Atlantis!!! :))) My fave and I because I purchased the quick queue so I cut 2hrs lines in all games and I got to play this 2x!
excited cousins in the splash zone !! >.<
Great game, Great Splash!
Happy day that I've been: I went to all the rides and most of the shows and I felt so nice
the most important thing..
I met Shamu, my dream, already!!!! <3
and we felt happy .... <3
after Seaworld, we went on a boat ride, Rio San Antonio
on the riverwalk at night!!
some pretty views I got:
crowds around the riverwalk
cool design of Marriott hotel
just the way to the Riverwalk Mall
The Neogothic building :)
Tree that grows from the rock
AND LASTLY: ON THE LAST DAY........
I WENT TO ALAMO
it is the place of Americans that defended themselves from the Mexicans in the 1800s
And 200 Americans vs. gazillions of Mexicans. You guess who won
on the way to the alamo
In front of The Alamo
and we went INSIDE it :)

I think Alamo is a pretty place for photoshooting
Looks like as if we're in fairytale or something ??
The Mozaic of The Alamo in front of Hyatt hotel
Riverwalk in the middle of the day <3 lovely clear water
with the duck view
and sadly .. it's time to go back home :(
and headed with reality that I need to finish my summer class
By the way, how do you think about San Antonio?
Have you been there before? What's your favorite spot??
I know it's too bad that there're not much international tourists over there
I think not much people know about San Antonio huh?
Anyway! Summer's ending soon
you better decide what will you do for the rest of the break!
