Weekend Road Trip


I love a good road trip, so when my friend Mandel said she was coming to Houston and wanted to meet-up in San Antonio I was thrilled. I lived in San Antonio for several years as a kid and since moving back to Texas I have only gone to San Antonio for work. We talked about coming up with a solid plan, but ended up flying by the seat of our pants instead. She found a nice Mexican restaurant on the River Walk, and I brought along my Frommer's guide book. We opted to follow the Frommer's "Walking Tour: Downtown San Antonio" map; it was concise, but hit lots of great landmarks. Among several other spots we saw the following:

The River Walk




The Alamo



Mandel & Me @ the Alamo
































Market Square 




We had a lot of fun sight-seeing and shopping all afternoon. It was so fun to have her in Texas, even for just an afternoon! I hope you all had great weekends too!
