Postcards from Madrid

My last post from Spain is all about the capital- Madrid! When we booked these tickets a looong time ago (seat sale, friends!), we had no idea our trip was on the same weekend as World Pride 2017! What are the chances, right? No wonder hotel prices were off the roof! We were so lucky to be able to experience such an incredible celebration though- definitely made our last leg of the trip extra memorable.

We stayed at an artist’s apartment right at the heart of the city. The place was so pretty, filled with local art

First agenda- FOOD! Nicole, Nana and I headed out first to get to Street XO. It’s a super delish restaurant on the top floor of El Corte Ingles in Serrano. BEST MEAL EVER. And according to Nana, best eye-candy ever LOL. The chef’s were all so handsome and they explained each dish to us everytime they served it! Right across Street XO is Rocambolesc Gelateria. They had the yummiest soft serve ice cream/yogurt! I got the purple one- forgot what flavor it was- but it was suuuper good. Highly recommend dropping by, if you’re in the area!

Speaking of food, we were invited to dine at The Hotel Ritz for lunch and tea time. The place was so magnificent, and I’m so happy we got to have coffee and tea at their beautiful garden. The ambiance was perfect- sunny day, pianist, yummy food and good company!

Couldn’t resist snapping a few OOTDs! The place was so beautiful!

This is what Wold Pride 2017 looks like in Madrid. The whole town was painted in Rainbow flags and everyone was so festive! Got more about the parade itself on my vlog, so check that out!

 You can’t leave Madrid without visiting the Mercato San Miguel. They had such delicious bites for 1 or 2 euros. Aaah I can still taste that Bacalao sandwich. Yummm!

Spain, you’ve been nothing short of amazing! Can’t wait to see you again! Maybe in the Spring, next time. Adios!x
