August 28th 2014

Well, a year of no blogging, not sure why really! So to get back into it, here's some photos from Segovia, near Madrid, where I spent a lovely few days recently in the middle of a very stressful time in my own life.
It's a beautiful place, a Unesco world heritage site, due to this Roman Aqueduct which dominates the town.
There are beautiful street signs everywhere, and an interesting thing called sgraffito, which is used on the buildings. It has different patterns and colours and it is very pretty.
There is also a wonderful castle, called the Alcazar, which was apparently the inspiration for Disney's Cinderella castle. When I took this photo there were lots of bats flying about in the warm air, it was great, I love bats!
