A Trip To Madrid

A Trip To Madrid

Park at Temple Of Debod

Park at Temple Of Debod

Another beautiful city ticked off our bucket list. Anyone else think that spontaneous trips away always turn out to be the best ones? We managed to bag return flights for £20 and did the full trip in under £150, all thanks to January sales. Madrid as a city was reasonably cheap, we stayed in a little air bnb' located in La Latina. Centrally located and perfect if you'd like to visit the famous El Rastro second hand market which is on every Sunday, filled with hundreds of people the atmosphere is amazing, you can spend hours strolling round the cobbled streets filled with markets selling second hand treasures.

Palacio De Cristal

Palacio De Cristal

A minimalists heaven. Think glass box filled with light. It has a panoramic view of Buen Retiro Park and is made from glass with an iron framework which is decorated with ceramic. Once used as a green house it is now an art exhibition. This was personally my favourite place of the trip, I honestly could have spent hours in there, it was absolutely beautiful.

Free entry, it's a must visit if your interested in architecture or photography.

Me and Jake sat here for hours. We got super lucky with the weather and this was the perfect spot to just sit in the sun, enjoy the views and people watch.
