So Ryanair held a £2 flight sale which lasted a day. The catch was that you could only fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday in November. Guess who doesn't work on Tuesdays?...me of course. So I booked myself a little day trip to Madrid in Spain. Take a look at how I spent my day...
I started off at the Palacio Cibeles which was very interesting. It is not easy to reach because it is situated on the side of a roundabout. So most tourists were taking photos from across the road instead.
Sangria Sangria Sangria...I have been longing to try this for a long time. I seriously don't know how I did not drink it in Barcelona?. Oh well. This drink is a blend of red wine, fruit, and orange juice.
Parque del Buen Retiro was the next stop. I have to say I was impressed by "Jardin du Luxembourg" in Paris...but this Spanish beauty definitely topped the list. They have a lake where people cruise along on little rowing boats.
A trip to Spain is never complete without some juicy tapas. So I went to San Miguel Mercado to load up on some paella and olives. The one thing that I did not get to have was churros...but i'm sure there will be plenty more trips to Spain in the future.
Happy Travels ✈
