- Within Texas boundaries as a way for me to save money
- A Megabus ride away (which was on time and clean, I love Megabus)
- low key
- great Mexican food (aka my other comfort food) readily available
Since San Antonio met all of these criteria and then some, my mom and I made a weekend trip to this city of about 1.5 million. Still tired from my return to Venezuela and a Christmas spent cooking everything under the sun (which I, surprisingly, loved doing), I actually did not map out an itinerary. I just wanted to see The Alamo and eat some great Mexican food.
