Last weekend we took an overnight trip to Ávila, a walled city located northwest of Madrid. It's an easy hour and a half train ride from the city, and it was nice to see more of the surrounding region. Neither of us was feeling great, so we took it easy and enjoyed strolling around the town--inside and outside the walls, and on the walls as well (which was a really great experience and well worth the 5 euros per person). It's an ancient city, and was inhabited in the 5th century BC. (That's really hard for me to wrap my mind around!) We stayed in a simple room in a 15th century inn. Because how often do you have that opportunity?!
