Segovia

We drove for four hours today to the ancient town of Segovia. It is about 80kms north of Madrid and I have wanted to visit it for ages.
We pulled up to the gates of the campsite tired, hungry and dying for the loo, and then found out that it had closed for the winter.
The nearest open campsite was over an hours drive away, so we had to quickly change our plans.
We found a place to park the van, but it was a good 40 minute walk each way from the touristy centre.
We had been going to spend three nights here, but in the end we only had about one hour!
Segovia was as good as I expected and we raced around it glancing at an amazing aqueduct, a fairytale castle, a cathedral and views of the surrounding countryside.
We then got back into the campervan and fortunately when we arrived at the the next campsite it was still open.
Segovia will have to go back on my 'to visit' list.
