San Antonio, Texas

Earlier this year, I took a solo trip to San Antonio, Texas. I booked a hotel room for a couple of days and just spent time alone. At first it was scary because I have never really traveled alone, especially in a city i’m not familiar with. The times i’ve been in San Antonio, i’ve tagged along with friends who either lived there or we took a daytrip together.

I learned something during this trip: i can be alone and i can be happy. Growing up i was always afraid of being alone, being forgotten, being ignored… i’ve carried this anxiety with me through adulthood but i really embraced alone time on this trip! I shopped for clothes alone, i drank coffee at the café alone, i ate dinner at a restaurant alone. It was so refreshing!

Here is a small collection of my favorite photographs from my first roll. Stay tuned for part two!
