How this trip was planned

I had two weeks holidays after a few stressful months. I really needed to rest a little, but I did not rest at all, on Saturday the 4th of august I had to work, my cousin pick up me from work and the travel begins!

We took the road to Sevilla (be careful the circle road is a little messy) and them addressing to Italica, we took the road to Caceres until Merida.

From Malaga to Sevilla is motorway but from Sevilla to Merida it was a normal road with one way for each drive.

We got into Merida at 19.00 and we founded the hotel easy, it was central and close to the Amphitheatre where we were going to enjoy a beautiful open drama.

We stayed there that night and the next morning to visit the rest of the city and on Sunday we took the road again to Caceres.

We stopped for lunch in Trujillo, where I fallen in love, i did not know it was so beautiful ...

Then we went to Caceres, the hotel was not very nice, so at the end we changed for a better one next to the old quarter and close to the city center too.

Next day we took again the car to Salamanca, we stopped in Plasencia (the followings days it was going to be a mediaeval fair, so streets looked wonderful), the we stopped in Hervas, lovely Jewish old quarter, and finally we got into Salamanca.

Salamanca is the city where I could live for a few years, the atmosphere is so great! No words can explain...

The next day after walking through Salamanca, we took again the road to Valladolid, we stopped half an hour before, turned right and drive along the Castles roads...: Medina Sidonia is great, until we got finally at our family house in Castrillo de la Vega, I had two days to recover and flight to Holland (but that?s another history) LOL....
