Charming and Historic Segovia

SEGOVIA, SPAIN. A 1-hour drive in Madrid took us in Castilla and into one of the most charming cities I had been to on this trip so far. Segovia has a lot of story to tell and it starts with its aqueduct. The city built an amazing waterway system to transport their water from other parts of Spain. It runs for about 15 kilometres and snakes through some parts of the city where they finally filter it before distribution. Sometimes, the lengths of the aqueduct can be found underground, like what a canal would be; and sometimes it can be found up high, supported by columns made in stacked stones.

The Old Town of Regensburg with Stadtamhof

REGENSBURG, GERMANY. A picturesque little city, Regensburg is a city that should not be missed when you are in Bavaria for it houses a UNESCO World Heritage Site: The Old Town of Regensburg with Stadtamhof. Located along the Danube River, the medieval town has many pretty buildings and shophouses of great quality that gives proof of it being an influential trading centre before.
