          Yesterday's adventure was divided into two parts. First, we went to Ávila, a city about an hour from Segovia known for its medieval walls and its hometown heroine, Saint Teresa. 2015 marks the 500th anniversary of Saint Teresa's birth. She was born in Ávila in 1515 and spent many years there as a Carmelite. In 1562, seeking a stronger vow of poverty, Saint Teresa established the Discalced (or Barefoot) Carmelites. Saint Teresa is also famous ...

          Yesterday was another packed day! In the morning we went to El Escorial -- an enormous royal palace and monastery built by King Philip II that is less than an hour from Segovia. We had a wonderful tour and brushed up on the last 400 years of Spanish history. Highlights included the royal mausoleum, where nearly all of the kings and queens since Ferdinand and Isabella are buried, and the royal gardens, replete with rose bushes and topiaries. After relaxing in ...

          As usual we were way behind schedule (so many great little towns) so we committed ...

          ... world's best market on the Sunday (mum will be most disappointed in me!) but never mind! I arrived in Ávila in the afternoon without really knowing what was in store for me. It turned out to be a looooooot of walking. It's a walled city, and you can walk along the majority of the walls. Starting right next to the tourist office was Basilica de San Vicente and the first entrance into the walled city. I decided to get straight into the ...
