Japanese Tea Garden San Antonio Texas & Changing Domicile to Texas – San Antonio Video



Japanese Tea Garden San Antonio Texas & Changing Domicile to Texas // I visited the Japanese Tea Garden in San Antonio Texas, also called a Chinese Tea Garden and experience some beautiful zen gardens, Japanese waterfall, and the beautiful flowers and trees in the rest of the Japanese garden. If you visit Texas, the Japanese Tea Garden is one of the free things to do in San Antonio so make sure you stop by and visit and do a little meditation on the rock steps. I’m passing through from San Antonio to Houston to escape some winter weather and then domicile in Texas. I ended up in Houston as well for the RV inspection so I could get the RV registration in Texas.

★ Season 2, Episode 47: Visit Texas Japanese Tea Garden in San Antonio Texas and change domicile from WA to TX

★ How I Got Started

Hi, I’m Amber and in May 2017 I started this nomadic journey after selling my house and all my belongings to pursue this crazy dream of living out of my RV full-time and traveling all around North America.

After 1 year of traveling, I sold my 26 foot Winnebago Class C RV for a more nimble Class B Hymer Aktiv van. I couldn’t have been more excited to continue my second year in a van that allows me to travel to more places and experience more in life.

  2. I'm moving down by Texas in a few months 🙂

  3. you are an awesome photographer, even before the new equipment!

    Reply
  4. I too, would like to know the process of taking on Texas as my domicile state. California raised, but I can’t get out of here fast enough… Thanks for any suggestions –

    Reply
  5. Thumbs up for the visuals and music in the tea garden sequence!

  6. I’m interested in knowing more about the nationwide health insurance plan Texas has. Did you find it through the ACA exchanges? Can you give us a bit more info on that? I retire in a year and my only concern is finding health insurance (as I will not be old enough for Medicare yet). Mainly prescription coverage. Thanks in advance for any info you can share.

  7. Welcome back to Texas, Amber! Great video with your new gimbal in San Antonio…my home town. Safe travels, girl!

  8. I went to that station when I was in the US last year. You could spend hours in the store part and I think they said 40 something pumps.

  9. Awesome and beautiful – with hair styling or without! Oh yes… the gardens were nice too! 🙂
    Every time we've been to the gardens, it was raining, cloudy, or both. At least I got to see it through your eyes!
    And I'm still kicking myself for not being in Houston when you were… I so wanted to meet you and see that van of yours! Someday… someday… I'm sitting outside of my house in the back porch… just rained so a little humid but warm (I love warm… and hot… and boiling!). Next time you are around, maybe we will be too! You're always welcome. Come meet the family and the dog and… oh yes… no van yet. *sigh*. Someday… someday…

  10. You do have gorgeous skin! Do you think the oil helps with rosacea? I get nervous that it’ll flare-up if I put anything on my face. I remember you mentioning that you’ve dealt with rosacea as well.

  11. Video is awesome, very cool.

    Reply
  12. I knew it! As soon as the video started, I wondered if you got a new camera. The video looked awesome – very smooth. The gardens are gorgeous! – Marsha

  13. My sister lives in the Dallas area and when I was there last year, we went by a Buck-ee's. Next time, I'm asking her to take me there!
    If I ever go nomad, I can use my sister's address, hey!
    I lived in Florida for 4-1/2 years and I was very happy to move to the Denver area. As beautiful as Florida is, it's too freakin' hot! I never spent much time outside because of the humidity. I was getting up at 4:15 AM to run because that was the coolest time of day! There's nothing sane about any of that!!
    We actually had a blizzard yesterday here! While I love the snow, everyone else is super ready for Spring. I'm ready for it to get warmer so I can sit out on my porch in the evenings. Something I could never do in Florida!

  14. Welcome (back to) Texas! Native Texan here, born in Austin, and my Dad was from San Antonio. So I really enjoyed the footage from the Japanese gardens there. There is also a very nice, albeit smaller, Japanese garden in Zilker Park in Austin. If you're headed north, check out the camping at Inks Lake State Park near Burnet, TX. Beautiful park, nice facilities (many of which have been recently renovated).

  15. The oil has worked. You look the most beautifulest that I’ve ever seen you in this video 😊.

  16. The same as Washington, gotta have a front plate.

    Reply
  17. Yes, most states require two plates. Dumb. I hate it.

    Reply
  18. That garden was fantastic. Loved the stonework. Calif requires 2 plates too. Maybe you can get an engraved license plate frame to replace your custom plate. 🙁 Bummer. Don't freeze.

  19. Nice quality shoot, liked slow motion on water fall.
