I’d never been to Texas before except for layovers on the way to Central and South America. Not that two cities define a state, especially a state as big as Texas, but I had such a great time in Austin and San Antonio last week. The trip was an ideal 5 days. We were joined by friends from both coasts. And the weather was unbeatable. Perfectly hot, which is exactly what I was looking for. Anything warmer than chilly SF makes me so very happy! Sun was my #1 trip factor and Texas certainly came through.
Something else that stood out to me was how friendly everyone was. Must be that southern hospitality. The only swearing I heard was from other tourists. I’m used to swearing and hearing a lot of it, so the lack of cussing in Texas didn’t go unnoticed by a potty-mouth such as myself.
