I had the chance to plan a last minute Weekend in Madrid, to accompany my daughter who is moving there for a few months to study Spanish for her year abroad at Uni.

And I very gladly took the chance to go with her, as I never had the chance to visit Madrid before!

I have been to Barcelona, and thoroughly and utterly loved it, with all that Art Deco’ decadence, and the sea… I was frankly convinced that it could not have many competitors, to be fair. But I was wrong.

We left early on Saturday morning, as our first priority was getting the key to the shared appartments for my daughter around lunchtime.

After that, and a big grocery shopping to fill her fridge for the foreseeable future, we embarked on a discovery of Madrid.

Flamenco time!

And we walked down the Calle Mayor towards the sunset…

Calle Mayor, and a spectacular sky.

I’ll update the rest of the trip very soon! A bit of work in progress but I couldn’t wait to share it…
