The Stuff of Dreams


This trip has been all about my granddaughter. Spain is where she chose to go to celebrate her graduation from high school and what we have done are the things that were on her wish list.

One wish was to see a castle. I didn’t know how to make that happen, but Liam at Kensington Tours did, and that is how we got to Segovia and a castle that is the stuff of fairy tales. In fact, the Alcazar of Segovia inspired Walt Disney’s creation of Cinderella’s castle.

The castle is turrets

and stained glass

and textures

and reminders of how battles were fought centuries ago.

It is tapestries woven of fine threads and telling stories that may otherwise not be recorded.

It is sculpted gardens

and views to a multicolored landscape.

While the castle is awe inspiring, what was best was sharing it with those I love. That is something to be cherished.
