Texas

Texas was the first state where we experienced real heat and humidity! Traveling through the southeast part of New Mexico and into west Texas, where oil fields scattered across, our AC unit ran into some problems. That didn't stop us from moving forward to Dallas where we stayed with a family friend. It was awesome to finally stay indoors and take as much showers as we liked. We were taken to a Truck Yard that offered great food and drinks and you can enjoy eating on a treehouse.   On our way to Austin, we’ve made a stop in Waco to see the Silos at the Magnolia Market (from the TV show Fixer Upper) and spent the night camping at Waco Lake, we had no fishing gear but the stunning view made it 100% worth while.  Once we got in to Austin, we took a dip at Barton Springs located in Zilker Metropolitan Parks. A best place to cool down since the natural spring water stays on average of 68 degrees all year long. For funky souvenir shops, art galleries, street poet & music performances, SOCO district has a lot to offer. Then we headed towards Congress Bridge to view millions of bats flying from underneath the bridge before sunset. As for night life, Rainey Street had a selection of unique bars, lounge & clubs and food trailers. Our last stop was in San Antonio home of the Alamo. Other than the Alamo we visited the Riverwalk and enjoyed the scenery of La Villita, where a Margarita tasting contest was happening.  At the tasting, we met a photographer who happened to be working on a photo book of San Antonio. She recommended we check out the San Fernando Cathedral Lightshow located in The Saga - Main Plaza. The show was created by a French artist, Xavier De Richemont, on the history of San Antonio projected onto the cathedral. It was a visual & musical experience that was very engaging.
