[Photo Journal] Walking the Streets of Toledo Spain

Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Before going home to Singapore, my friend and I went on a 6-day trip to Madrid. We were going back and forth with our options – from Zurich to Amsterdam to Strasbourg to Prague to Milan. After much deliberation, we finally decided on Madrid. Perfect choice, really.

Originally, we thought of going to the beach – but after realizing that it will take us roughly around five hours going to and from Madrid, we settled on taking a half-day tour to Toledo instead.

It was a Places of Worship Kind of Half-Day Tour for us – with cathedrals and synagogues as part of our itinerary.

I enjoy taking pictures of lamp posts, lighting up travelers’ paths.

Toledo is a UNESCO Heritage site. It wasn’t really crowded with tourists when we were there,

I love Spain’s winding pathways and medieval, cobblestone streets, no matter if it is uphill climbing mostly.

According to WikiTravel.org: “The history of Toledo dates back to Roman occupation (Toletum) circa 192BCE.”

It does look somewhat like a fortress.
