We woke up to a 1°C temperature and by now we’ve gotten pretty good at creating comfy sleeping conditions. We have a 7 hours and 40 minutes drive ahead of us.
On the route we’re slowly leaving behind the oil fires and pumps. We picked up some Subway for lunch & reached the campground at 6pm. A quick 14-minute set up of our home (we’re speeding up) was followed by a short drive to
The Alamo: where the well-known Battle of the Alamo took place, and is basically the beginning of Texas as we know it.
Our day ended with the River walk: a second must-do in San Antonio. We were the lucky spectators of the over 100.000 holiday lights, which gave this 2-mile walk a magical feel. You’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants, with the greatest views 🙂 And bonus: You can take your beer to go along on your walk.
Tomorrow’s an 8-hour drive to New Orleans, where a warm Marriott will be having its kingsize bed ready for us. That’ll be 2 relaxing nights of no setting up camp.
& we’re very excited about a barbecue lunchstop in Houston – we’re talking Texas here!
