My Trip to San Antonio TX

January 19, 2017 | By

A vacation to the exciting San Antonio in Texas left 8-year-old Srobona Banerjee mesmerized. In her travelogue she takes you through the marine life in Sea World, the beautiful Riverwalk, the thrilling natural caverns and more!

It was Friday morning, and I heard my Dad typing on his computer. I went to the valley, and then my sister asked, “What day is it today?”

“It’s Friday,” I said.

“Yay! We’re going to San Antonio today!” my sister said.

We went down the stairs and saw our Dad on the computer. He said if we wanted to try the trail mix and we said, “yes”. My Mom woke up, and then we realized that Mom had an appointment with the Doctor. The Doctor appointment took FOREVER! We finally had gotten home, so we ate some lunch.

After my Dad had a little nap, and we went into the car. It took a long time to get there, (6 hours), we got there at 10:42 pm.

I looked at the hotel, and it was amazing! The lobby was decorated beautifully, and it even had a Riverwalk level with a waterfall! We were very tired so we had to go to sleep.

The next morning we went downstairs to eat breakfast at the restaurant breakfast buffet. After we were done eating, we went through a lot of restaurants before we got to the ticket booth to buy tickets for the Riverwalk boat ride. We got to learn a lot about the historic things about San Antonio. I even learned how the Riverwalk was made!

Sea World

We went back to the hotel and had a little rest and we got tickets for Sea World. The first thing we did when we came in was to look at the timings for all the shows. The First show we saw was a sea lion show which was about two sea lions (that are real) trying for Santa to meet them.

The next show we saw was a Beluga and dolphin show with water ballet dancers and person doing Arial Acrobatics. The Third show we saw was a pet show called Pets Ahoy! The Fourth show was a Shamu show with singers. We even got to get a Rudolph the red nose reindeer nose.

After Sea World, we went to dinner at Rio-Rio Tex-Mex. We went to bed after that.

The next morning we ate breakfast and went back to the hotel to bathe. After everybody was ready, we went to market square, we got to look around and we bought a pair of earrings.

Next, we went to lunch at La Margarita, but the waiting time was very long. After we came back to the hotel to rest, and then we went outside to go and take some pictures at Alamo. We saw a place called Ripley’s and they had a wax museum, show theatre, and a mirror maze with 16 mazes. My sister and dad went to the mirror maze but I didn’t.

We went to Marriot to eat dinner with Saborna Mashi.

We walked by Riverwalk to get to the hotel. The next morning we packed up and went to breakfast. After that we got into the car and we went to Natural Bridge Caverns. I didn’t want to go at first, but when we were hiking up the trail, I liked it, because we were going to get out of the caverns. The whole thing including climbing up took 1 hour and 40 minutes.

The caverns had a lot of rock formations, and some of them had funny names like the fried egg, the banana peel, and the king’s throne. Everybody in my family was getting tired except for me, but it was kind of weird that we had to look at some of the same things when we were climbing up.

After the discovery at Natural Bridge caverns, we went to San Marcos to eat at Panera bread. We went back to the car and we returned home.
