Why Madrid Rocks!

Madrid is the perfect city to kick back and relax. After spending the last few days hitting all the major attractions in Barcelona, we wanted to end our trip in Madrid with no real plans. We rented a beautiful apartment from Spain Select with a fantastic view. We ate when we got hungry and we walked around when we got bored. Madrid is beautiful and full of friendly locals. Everyone takes a long lunch so they work later and eat even later. Most people don’t eat until 10PM. That is considered pretty late for us Americans. Luckily, we were able to pop into the Mercado de San Miguel for some delicious snacks. This market is full of delicious food, but their seafood was remarkable! I highly recommend a trip to this market, although try to go during off-hours to avoid the crowds. It would be a good idea to try some Paella as well. It’s a traditional rice dish with seafood. Very delicious. The parks in Madrid are quite nice as well. My favorite memory from Madrid was our trip to Retiro Park. We rented a rowboat and Adam rowed us around the pond so I could take some pretty pictures. There are plenty more to do, but these stood out to me most. Here are some pics from our trip. Enjoy!
