Escape to Segovia
Segovia is wonderful, all churches, crumbling seminaries, friendly people, deep blue skies… and Roman Aqueduct. My son and I escaped for the day on the new high speed train service from Madrid. What used to take nearly two hours on the crawling regional service is now dispatched, at 250 km/h, in about 25 minutes. And what a change of perspective it brings! Hurray for Day Trips!
