Be Aware Of Exits Off Toll Roads

The weather was great and we were on our summer vacation in San Antonio three weeks ago.  My husband and I went here five years ago.  This time we had our darling daughter with us and we took her to Sea World.

On our way to San Antonio, we stopped by at a Czech Bakery in West, Texas.  We bought some pastries, particularly Kolache, for snacks.  As you know, Kolache are famous Czech pastry.  They’re delicious.

As we went on driving after the quick shopping in West, my husband and I agreed we will not go through Austin to get away from the rush hour traffic.  So we decided to try taking the Toll Road 130.  It’s a very nice toll road.  If I remembered it right, there’s a section on the toll road posted speed limit 85 mph.  Oh my goodness.  That’s very high.  I stayed on the speed of 75 mph because my car has a small engine.  It’s working very hard on that speed.  On toll road 130, my husband was wondering if we had already passed Austin.  The gas was getting low.  He didn’t want to look at my phone for a map.  He didn’t want to look at the map in my car either.  He kept saying we will be able find an exit very soon.  But we didn’t.  He was furious because we got trapped and charged big on toll fees.  I was nervous because the gasoline indicator is close to Empty.  What a frustrating experience.

We had no choice but to wait until we got to Seguin where the toll road ends.  We stopped by at a gas station and filled up my car’s tank.  We’re all quiet in the car.  San Antonio is about 30 minutes away from Seguin (depending on traffic).  I am just happy that we got there around 4:00 P.M.

No driving on toll road on our way home.
