I love planning trips. I start enjoying myself before get to the place. But a plan is just a safety net, everything can change during the trip. Planning is meant to know what to do and save time and money. Besides, I can find people who have already been there for precious tips.
I was in Madrid, and took a Saturday to know Segovia in one Day. It was 80 km by train from Atocha. The city has a very old Roman aqueduct and the Alcazar, which inspired Walt Disney to create Cinderella’s castle. Walking inside the Alcazar is a History class about medieval times and the kings of Spain.
My last adventure was an expedition to Chilean and Argentinean Patagonia, with a group of 18 people guided by eco-friendly walkers. It was an 18-day walk through 130 km in Los Glaciares National Park, Tierra del Fuego National Park and Torres del Paine National Park, in Chile. We reached the cities of El Calafate, El Chaltén and Ushuaia.
Sunday morning was an adventure at SOUKS (Central Market) and at PLACE DJEMAA EL-FNA, like in the adventure movies set in Morocco, narrow streets where people, horses, motorbikes, bikes and horse carts go by. You can buy whatever you want, from human teeth to chameleons. I felt like in a movie, all I needed was to be kidnapped and rescued by an American hero.
