This square and specifically this structure, we were told, is where Princess Isabel was coronated as Queen of Castilla. When we were eating at a restaurant a group of older woemn came in singing and dancing (and Marissa did not hesitate to join them), apparently a traditional women´s holiday celebrated on the 5th of February Eastern view of the Roman aqueduct of Segovia. An idyllic view of what appears to be a farm or perhaps winery. A luxurious religious altar in the Alcazar of Segovia covered in sheets of gold. A little miniature, and so adorable, model of the city of Segovia. Inside Segovia's alcazar, being silly with these lances which I couldn't reach, unfortunately. My favourite picture of the trip to Segovia, one of a clear as can be sky and the best view of the city available. These are the towers of the alcazar, which very much conformed with the idea of a castle that I've had in mind since Childhood. Exclusive view of the basement of the alcazar, which was the part with the most "there" feeling in the whole place, according to yours truly. The girls are puzzled as to why they've turned around to look at me and not the gorgeous view in front of them. An intricately window called celosía and two boys peering into it. A view of a local church, which the royalty living in this house must've enjoyed, just as I did.

Our trip to Segovia, famous for its aqueduct, castle and cathedral. The pictures are of/in these landmarks and more. We spent the remainder of the day in a restaurant where we had some great dishes topped with the delicious ponche de Segovia, a dessert I still have dreams about.

My one true love is my team: Juventus and while most days I&#39;m a completely rational being, there&#39;s a 2-hour window during the weekend where I am lost in the joy of fandom. I also play intramural soccer, with semi-finals being the best result so far (fingers-crossed for finals next year!!!!). Always a fan of arguing, I can also be spotted challenging people&#39;s beliefs or stances on a daily basis to spark interesting conversations. Never an avid reader, but more of a picky one, my favourite genre is historical fiction, preferably pre-medieval. Another hobby is singing which I do aloofly around people, so much so that I ended up singing for the Gospel Choir at Gettysburg College, though not being a believer.</span></p>
