Since Paris took up my first full weekend in Europe, I decided it would be best to really dedicate weekend #2 to Spain. Luckily enough, our faculty advisor was still around and was offering up a free trip to Segovia on that Saturday. Done deal. There’s not a whole lot to be explained about Segovia besides that it’s a very short and convenient train ride from the city center. We spent a few hours seeing the sights, so here they are!
Segovia is where it hit me how OLD things in Europe really are. I mean, we were up in this insanely gorgeous castle that is thousands of years old, my mind was being totally blown, and there were people sunbathing in the grassy area right next to it like it was no big deal. NEXT TO A CASTLE. We don’t have those in the U.S., last time I checked. It was a quick little day trip, but it definitely changed my perspective in a big way and made me appreciate the history that people have kept alive for so long.
