This past weekend, we were lucky enough to travel to Madrid as a group on a trip organized by our University here in Mallorca. Prior to this, the only parts of Madrid that I’d seen were the insides of the airport and train station– needless to say, I was excited to get around Spain’s capital and see some of the sights. We flew in on Friday and by the time our taxi pulled up to the hotel, I could already tell that I would love Madrid. The city is much larger than I had expected, especially in contrast with Palma.
On the Friday we arrived, we walked through the city to the Parque del Retiro, where we rowed some boats in the lake there.
The second day, we went to the Palacio Real and the Plaza Mayor.
Up next is a trip to Florence, Italy!
