So this is part two of the my Madrid diary, I’m just going to keep talking about what we got up to, what we ate and how much I love this place again. We started the day with a slight sleep in, I mean we did so much the day before I think we deserved it and then made our own breakfasts then set off for a day of adventure. We went the opposite way we walked in the day before just to make it interesting and see some more sights. Our first stop was Plaza Mayor, the central plaza in the city and I think this was the sunniest moment all trip, we actually had a moment to sit, watch the views and soak in the sun for a total of 10 minutes. Even though the pictures may look sunny… I promise you it was pretty cold, like Newcastle cold.
Next we just walked through some streets to make our way to the Royal Palace of Madrid which was spectacular view and the gardens were gorgeous, I had to snap up a few photos of it all. Unfortunately we picked the only day of the week that the palace was shut off from the public so we could only admire it from afar. There was people playing musical instruments when we walked past the gardens, it had a Romeo and Juliet vibe going on and I was loving it. We visited the Temple of Debod next on our travels, which is an ancient Egyptian temple that was dismantled and rebuilt in Madrid. By this time of day it was getting cold and our stomachs were growling so we headed off for food at an local Italian- I got stuffed salmon pasta with cream sauce and walnuts and it was amazing! This day was less exciting than the previous one, but we still explored and experienced a new culture and I’m so happy I got to do that!
Below are some pics of my travels & I’ll see you in the next post.
The final part shall be out shortly.
