After visiting Frankfurt and Heidelburg, I flew back to Spain to meet up with Tim again. I had a 12-hour layover in Brussels and since I had been there just a few weeks prior I took a train into town and checked out a few more sites (not to mention loaded up on FRESH Belgian chocolates and snacked on Belgium waffles with ice cream and strawberries!)Instead of flying to Madrid, I flew into the city of Valladolid. The capital of the province Castilla Leon, Valladolid is a small city about 125 miles northwest of Madrid.
This is also the place where Miguel de Cervantes published his first edition of Don Quixote in 1604...
Check out the detail in this cathedral's entrance!
A bronze sculpture in town. (If you wanna see the other side then you'll just have to visit!)
This is Tim back mapping out the road trip for our castle tour before we picked up the rental car.
One of the things I'll remember about Valladolid are all of the roses.
