Santi had a birthday on Saturday and we started our celebration with carrot cake for breakfast–we could have sweets for breakfast since it was his birthday!  Afterwards we drove to Segovia for a weekend away, the trip was my birthday gift to Santi.  Our weekend was perfect, we saw the emblematic aqueduct, then visited the Cathedral and Alcázar!  And on Sunday we took a private tour of the beautiful 16th-century monastery, San Antonio el Real.

The only tiny flaw in my planning was my wardrobe, it was so much colder in Segovia than the city and I didn’t packed for the chilly temperatures and snow.  I ended up buying a fuzzy wool hat and layering all the socks I had packed.
