This October I was lucky enough to go to Spain, mostly to photograph my cousin's wedding, but I got to stay for about 9 days!
One of my highlights from the trip was the day I spent in Segovia. My other cousin had just gotten engaged, and her fiance is from there, so we spent the day touring and finished it off with an engagement session (pics from that to come in a later post!)
Segovia is a historic city northwest of Madrid, in central Spain's Castile and León region. Over centuries of settlement, it's gained a rich architectural legacy, including medieval walls, Romanesque churches, a former royal palace and a Gothic cathedral. The iconic ancient Roman aqueduct has more than 160 arches, most in the original mortarless granite, and stands in the heart of the city.
Segovia was a MAGICAL city- so full of rich history, yet still quaint, in the middle of the beautiful Spanish countryside. My day spent there was definitely one of the main highlights of my trip. Also, because... I got to see a real CASTLE, fulfilling many childhood dreams!
I cannot thank my Spanish family enough for being such amazing hosts and showing me their country. Madrid, Segovia, El Escorial - these places should ALL be on your bucket list!
Also, some of the best food I have ever eaten, I discovered on this trip. Especially in a little Italian place off the beaten path in Madrid. Insanely delicious.
Once you catch the travel bug- there's no way to be content with staying home all the time! Most of our goals as a family involve travel, and I can't wait to show my girls the world!
