I hope your day is going well! My morning began with a 6+ mile bike ride. I had planned on going for a run, but after Monday’s CrossFit class (and the 2 mile run that night), my legs are still feelin’ it. Apparently doing my first squat ever- and 199 more after that– in one day isn’t necessarily the smartest idea. Who would’ve thought?
I love feelin’ a good workout though, so I can’t complain too much. :)
Okay, let’s get to the travel stuff. There’s so much to say about Madrid, and not enough web space to hold it. Instead, I’m going to share my trip mostly through pictures and include a few words.
Ready to head to Spain from your seat? :) Let’s go!
Okay, okay, I’ll stop with all the airport pictures. On to some real stuff! :)
Here’s Madrid architecture:
You dip the churros into the “hot chocolate” (which is really a chocolate sauce, because it’s thicker than regular hot chocolate).
You’re supposed to drink the hot chocolate after you finish the churros, but my mom and I found it too rich (and thick) to do that. But don’t worry, we tried ;)
Are you hungry yet? :) I’m definitely getting ready for dinner after looking at all of these. These are most of the food pictures, but not all of them. My mom and I also had dinner at the OLDEST RESTAURANT IN THE WORLD (Botin), but unfortunately the pictures didn’t turn out super well. Apparently my camera didn’t want to make pretty pictures?
what the heck. My mom and I also attended a tapas tour, but that is worthy of it’s own post. Plus, can anyone really handle any more pictures of food in this post? ;)
Hope these pictures made you feel like you were in Spain, too! Or, maybe they gave you some inspiration for tonight’s dinner. Let me know if you decide to make a Spanish-inspired meal after seeing these! :)
Okay, after all of those pictures, I think it’s time that the Madrid recap comes to a close. Although the Tapas Tour photos are still to come, it’s time to say “adios” for now :)
Questions for you:
Have you had Spanish food before? (Either in Spain, or at a Spanish restaurant somewhere)
What’s your favorite type of food? (Spanish, German, Italian, Mexican, American…)
