I just got back from Europe on Sunday which was quite an adventure. My husband had to go over for work and so I decided to tag along. We were suppose to go to Spain and France but do to the transit strike in France and a volcano erupting in Iceland we never made it out of Spain. Oh well I guess that was meant for another trip. However, after all the pain it took to get home I don't think that will be for a long time.
While I was there I saw some pretty cool things like art museums, the Madrid palace, a few cathedrals, and a convent that held some of Madrid's royal nuns.
This was one of my favorite pieces of art at the Prado. It's Goya's "The dog".

While I was there I also go in a few day trips. One to Toledo and one to Segovia which was my favorite of the two. Segovia has a huge castle called Alcazar, which Walt disney got a lot of inspiration from, and huge aqueducts. This town also has a lot of character because of how all the building are decorated with beautiful patterns. I took a lot of pictures for inspiration.
