Bueno San Antonio!


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!

  21. Can't let this one pass, Catherine. At the time of the Alamo, us Texans were fighting for our independence from Mexico- We were the REPUBLIC of Texas. We wouldn't join the United States of America for several years after that.

    There were many famous Americans at the Alamo, come to defend a fellow English speaking, liberty and freedom loving, republic. Such as Davy Crockett, who was impeached and kicked out of the US Congress to which he replied "Y'all can go to Hell, I'm going to Texas!"

    Texas history, serious business. :D
