Sights of Madrid

As you might know from my previous post, we are currently in Madrid.
The journey was tiring to say the least, getting up after barely sleeping for two hours makes a day and journey like a zombie. So Tuesday went basically all to the trip. We did have clear weather and a no-wing seat (which I had chosen online) making views for some beautiful pictures.

As I also said in the last post it is not a vacation, but some family drama, I will spare you the details, but today it is solved and finished. It sounds like a quick thing but it actually have been taking/dragging on for several years so it is nice that this chapter has finally closed.

Our Hotel is in central Madrid (Puerta del Sol) with lots of old buildings, cafe's and restaurants.
We have been doing something nice every day to relax, mostly looking shops and shopping a little :)

With all the things that needed to be arranged I have only took a few pictures so far, but now that we have the weekend and no-not-fun stuff for a few days I will be sure to take some more for a more thorough blog post for next time.

Most people know the famous architecture of Barcelona, but Madrid is full of gorgeous buildings too. Maybe not so peculiar as Gaudi's work but definitely worth a visit.

Hope to share some more in the next few days!


  1. Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to more pictures. I have been in Madrid long time ago, also staying close to Puerta del Sol, but in a hostel that looked like from a horor movie. But the trip was fun and I enjoyd the architecture and some flamenco.

  2. Glad for you that the family thing is sorted.
    Thanks for the view of Madrid, I have never been there, must take a trip some time!

  3. Such pretty pictures! I never went to Madrid, but this makes me want to go :)

  4. Beautiful place! Glad the drama has concluded for now.

  5. I want to travel too! Actually I went to Madrid when I was little but I don't remember much except my mom wouldn't let me play on a playground because it was muddy LOL and that I got a leather pencil case.
