San Antonio, Texas

A gorgeous city.. so big, but seems so small. Downtown you'll find the famous Riverwalk, which goes miles and miles through downtown but also far outside and is a beautiful way to get to know the center of San Antonio.

After a thunderstorm with rain of 4 inches (=10cm) in just about three hours, our campground was heavily under water.

Dallas, Texas

Typically Swiss we expected of Dallas to see Ranches, Cowboys, Longhorns... the same as when visitors come to Basel and think they see mountains, cows and chocolate everywhere.
