Well, we’re out of Madrid. It is a great city, and we both liked it a lot. The Metro works great, the food is super and the graffiti brightens up all the newer buildings, the old ones need no such help.
Once we left Madrid, we started to head north. We went via Segovia as Sarah had not seen it, and I think it’s one of the best sights in Spain. So I got to go there again.
We moved on north, and did a bit of market shopping for veggies on the way in a little village called Valderas, near Leon.
We grabbed a coffee in “La Casita”, and it was great as they give out free buns with each coffee, so I had 2 and Sarah had none 🙂 For a small country village, this was a real treat.
We spotted this explorer on our way to see an old ruins, and we were impressed by the number of countries they had been to, and by the shape of the bike on the roof. We waited about for an hour to see who might surface, but saw no one. Their shoes we on the front seat, so they had not gone too far.
The little lane to the ruins (which was closed that day and we never saw…) was spectacular.
That’s the last shot of the Mog at a castle as it’s getting tired of parking near Cathedrals, Castles and Monasteries. And to be honest, we’re getting tired of them too, and are looking forward to our Spanish classes which are now booked and sorted!. The number of castles in Spain is incredible, and there is something to see in each town, but I’m afraid we have been overloaded and need to learn to Habla en Espanol!
