Segovia

Walt Disney got his inspiration for Cinderella’s castle from the castle in Segovia. And it’s not surprise as it’s beautiful and picturesque, and just the sort of castle you’d expect to see in a fairytale.

We took a day trip to Segovia from Madrid, which was a one hour straight shot bus ride, and it was totally worth it.

It’s a gorgeous town with its fairy tale castle and famous aqueduct.

Can you see all of those birds flying? Sweet M was in heaven!

This is what you get when your husband tells you to sit on a wall with a baby strapped to your back and wiley toddler in your arms, and the knowledge that if you fall off the back you will likely plummet to your death.

It also has a gorgeous cathedral if that’s your thing (its my thing, but with small children it’s less my thing…)

It has winding little cobblestone streets and musicians tucked away in doorways. The food is delicious and the people friendly. The town isn’t remotely as big as Madrid so you can trek the whole thing in no time and still have energy to spare (thank God. 4 kids is kind of exhausting all on its own.)
