you may remember from this post that way back in april austins parents came to visit us here in madrid. while they were here we took a day trip to toledo & i completely forgot to ever write about it! so here i am, a few months later catching up a bit. ha!
45 minutes south of madrid is toledo, a small walled city that is perfect for a quick get-away from the city. toledo is pretty small but is packed full with history, plus it's a UNESCO world heritage site, which we all know i love! it's also known for it's metal-work, so if you need a good knife you should go here. toledo is really cool because it has influences from christian, muslim & jewish cultures, which is a lot of culture for such a small place! we spent our time there wandering around the whole town, visiting the cathedral of toledo, the synagogue of el transito, the muslim & jewish quarters & eating a lot of gelato.
