Cheers to the weekend 🥂
Except I’m drinking 80% of my results instead 💁🏻♀️ haha, whatever... but really, the ingredients are CRAY but natural af & so interesting to learn about, so that’s exactly what I’m doing this lovely evening ladies & gents ✌🏼
For my last day in Madrid, I took an afternoon trip to Segovia via the high speed train. Getting there via the City bus then Metro was adventure enough but I managed. 🤦🏾♀️I'm extremely thankful for the recommendation by new Sister/Friend @blackchic.chronicles. Segovia ended up taking me by surprise. Why?
___ ✴For one if you don't know this about me, I'm a bit of geek for architecture, design, and historic buildings. ✴At one point of my life, I took course work in interior design and I relished in the opportunity to sketch historic architectural features, etc. Those days are long gone but I still love the history, period styles, details, and aesthetics of these buildings. ✴It's not everyday as y that Sista sees a castle so its beyond crazy to see these buildings in person as they are bigger than life!
With that said, Segovia was simply beautiful. An about face from the modern, bustling Madrid, Segovia was cozy and inviting. I had great encounters with the local business owners including the daughter of the owner of the restaurant I spent lunch at - #restaurantealmuzara (also a great offering of #vegetarian dishes which was a welcomed surprised as I'd eaten more than my share of meat in this city). ✴Some of the featured historic buildings/areas visited include the Catedral de Segovia, Plaza Mayor, Alcazár of Segovia, and Church of Millán. Since I got a late start, I was not able to get to some of the attractions such as the Aqeducts but when I return one day, I'll definitely check them out along with some other historic cities.
Coming home tomorrow! It's been a real experience making my 1st international trip. Thank you all for supporting, encouraging and indulging me during the journey. Next major trip for me is in March 2019. I look forward to sharing with you then. #bless#mimis45thbdaytravelbash ✌🏽😘🤗 #40something#40fine#girlswithglasses#shorthairdontcare#pincurlqueen#lipsticklover#fitmom#professionalwoman#havefunok#doyoubeloved#melanatedunicorn#travel for #selfcare and #personalgrowth#experienceofalifetime 💁🏽♀️Gracias, Merci & Thank You
