    I have decided that on our next trip to Europe we will be visiting Salamanca and the basque country. We missed both on our last trip in 2012. I keep on getting drawn there by reading blog posts like yours!

  30. How neat- it’s definitely charming when lit up at night!

    Looks like you’ve done a great job of seeing some great places. Taking a wrong turn is something I always love.

  32. I love walking through cities and monuments at night when the lights are so dramatic. Such contrasts. Would love to follow in your footsteps.

  33. The story of the school children is interesting. When I was on caving expedition in Belize, we paid particular attention to the frog pots. In almost every cave, there was one and only one pot with a frog figure molded onto the lip. The story goes that the Mayans would cast this frog pot as a good luck talisman. I wonder how many frog luck charm legends there are in the world?

  34. Wonderful city, full of rich history. As a student, I will try to do whatever that would bring me good luck, even if it means to search for a frog.

    When I think of Salamanca, the University of Salamanca comes to mind. I’ve never been, but it looks like a beautiful city to visit. I’m sure you learned a lot about the history of the city on the walking tour. Those are such a great source of information..

    Never been to Salamanca, but when I do I’ll definitely visit the casa de las conchas!! I absolutely adore seashells so that would be super cool for me 😀
