Segovia

This was the last weekend day trip we had in Spain, and the furthest away. After 3 hours on a bus we finally arrived, and we were most excited about this city because of the Roman aqueduct and the castle. We started off the day with a chocolate from a cafe before heading to the aqueduct. The aqueduct was so amazing, and the sky was so clear so it made it even more beautiful to look at. We walked up to the top which gave us a really lovely view of it and the mountains in the background.

Following the aqueduct, we walked around an just embraced the atmosphere and looked at a few of the old churches before going to a restaurant for lunch. Unfortunately, another girl we went with had picked the most touristy and expensive restaurant, as she wanted to try the traditional pork dish there. The waiters bring out a whole cooked pig and slice off a segment of it with a plate. I was not a fan of this, because I don’t like to eat food after seeing the face of the animal, so I was not happy with the restaurant, but despite this I stayed in good spirits and still enjoyed the day.

After admiring the view from outside, we went in, which was really cool because it had all of the old armour around the place. We also went up the tower, and up the steepest and windiest stairs ever, but the view was great. The castle was definitely my highlight of the day.
