Reisverslag San Antonio!
15 maart 2016
When we drove by Houston we started to play game with the letter. Who first had found all the letters in the alphabet on road signs or the license plates won the game. The Q was the most difficult character to find. But as yet I had won three times and Farah won once or twice.
Once we arrived after five hours the hotel. It was by around an hour or 4. After we had already brought our stuff to the room we went into the city for the first time. We visited the Alamo, this is a place where Texas fought Mexico for their independence and where they won but came a lot of people killed. After we had visited the Alamo we had done one of Emma's favorite things: eat dippin’ dots. After we had eaten our delicious ice cream we walked down to the riverwalk. It is like a tiny bit of the canals in Amsterdam. But in my opinion is the riverwalk much cozier with a lot of restaurants on the sides. After we had dinner we went looking for the Cinderella carriages as the girls called it. With all the lights the flowers hanging on the sides it really looked like it.
During the carriage ride we were given a tour of the city and they told us about the history of the city.
The second day we went to breakfast early, so that we could be at Seaworld at 10am. First Farah and I were going to the rollercoasters because we thought it is still early, there are no long lines. But unfortunately they were both still closed. So we walked back to the play area where the girls stood in line to enter the fluctuating fish. After this we went to the whale rollercoaster. Emma was too small but if I went along with her, she was allowed in there. After we had done this four times we walked to the sealion show we were nice and early so we had before still a nice little extra little show and Farah and Ronny got taken to the front, and there they were crowned prom king and queen!! The name of the show was Sealion high, it was about two sealions who still needed a few points to graduate and of course they did it!!
After the show was the rollercoaster finally open. Farah and I went all the way in the last two seats. I asked myself so many times why we had to sit in those seats. Later in the day I went again but this it was a terrified Ronny. He was screaming even more to than Farah or I did the first time. After this we went in another rollercoaster where you hung on the rails. This was the best ride of the day. After we had done this for the first time we went for lunch and on to the small fairest wheel well that was really super exciting for Emma then. Addy had enough of it after the first round. After the fairest wheel we went to a ride what Emma had been really looking forward to, but the part where we went back to front down and went up, but when the steep descent was still to come, the fear was to read in her eyes. Because we stayed dry we went again. Farah and I had an exchange of seats which I really regret. I was very very wet she was as good as dry!! The dolphin show is still and will always be my favorite show at Seaworld. After this we went really fast to the killer whale show. This was the last show of the day.
In the evening we had dinner again they cozy up to the riverwalk. Then we were all so tired that we went back to the hotel.
On the third day we got in the car after breakfast to go to the drive-in-zoo. This was a big zoo where you could feed all the animals food when they came walking to the car. First came an ostrich walking towards us, you go out your hand flat and he picked it all out!!! First it was a bit scary but I came over quickly. After this we saw an other ostrich, this was not so nice ... He bit into Ronny's seatbelt!! Quickly I closed my window. After the ostriches we arrived at the zebras before we got their part in why there was a sign: Watch out the zebras can bite!!!! What a fun sign to read anyway, when it finally came to zebras and Ronny fed the first one and so I wanted to try it too. And fortunately he did not bite my hand! But I had a lot of wetness on my hand. Then we came to the llamas, what are these cute animals!! They ate the food very gently in your hand off. Oh god and then another ostrich came and Ronny wanted to give him some food, but the ostrich was on the side of Farah so Ronny rolls her window down and leans over the bird comes with his head inside and Farah gets almost a panic attack. Fortunately for her, this was the end of the drive section and we were going to give the food that remained to the goats Here hung signs: do not pick up the baby goats. What does Emma ... she picked the babies up.
Afterwards we drove back to the hotel and we went to a sort of Mexican market gone this was so cozy flags hanging everywhere and everyone was super nice. We all bought some souvenirs. Hereafter we walked to the street where the Alamo was, were we took an old photo, Addy as a cowboy because she did not want to wear a dress. And Emma thought it was not fun anymore because her dress was too big, so she put on a princess dress which she would fit in, I had some original bells costume on with hat and all! It turned out as a really cute picture. As we walked we got all three got a San Antonio T-shirt. Finally, we had a tour with a tour boat on the river. That night Emma insisted that she would sleep with me. But Addyson did everything but would not sleep alone. So emma ended up sleeping with Addy.
I really enjoyed those couple of days and San Antonio is for sure in the top 5 of my favorite city’s of America
