The USA’s newest World Heritage site dedicated in 2015, the San Antonio Missions are a great history lesson in Spanish colonialism and tell the story of the beginning of South Texas culture. So this was the perfect way to start my exploration of San Antonio and Texas!
San Antonio’s Hotel Contessa is the perfect location to enjoy the best of this historic city. Located on the Riverwalk, this hotel offers a luxury retreat in the heart of the Riverwalk to explore San Antonio.
An overseas trip to France and a stroll through the Provence lavender fields may not be in the budget, but you can still see fields of purple in USA in Blanco, Texas.
The Painted Churches of Texas are a sight to be seen. Go inside a plain white steeple church and you will find a European styled painted church of high gothic windows, tall spires, elaborately painted interiors with brilliant colors and friezes created by the German and Czech settlers in America.
