Hello everyone! For this week’s blog i thought it would be fun to change things up a bit and go for a photo post… here you go!
Had to snap a quick picture during my run at Parque de el Retiro.
The horse statue in the center of Plaza Mayor.
A little blurry, but I managed to get a picture of the super tall lady during the Carnival parade in Madrid.
Taking in the sun by a a small pond in front of the tourist office in beautiful Toledo.
I was walking through the center of Madrid when I noticed a restaurant called “Casa Nicasio” — of course I had to take a picture!
The view from behind the gates of Palacio Real. I didn’t have time to take the tour that day but I have to go back for sure.
Probably the most photographed building in Madrid, the Metropolis, located in the heart of the city.
The view of Toledo, the city of 3 cultures.
After the Carnival, I had a front row view of the fireworks show behind Plaza Cibeles on valentines day.
The Roman aqueduct in Segovia was truly breathtaking.
The inside of the Templo de Debod was full of Egyptian hieroglyphics like these.
Cine Callao is known for its classical style and the most famous movie theater in Madrid.
The Circle de Bellas Artes is a building where you take an elevator up to the highest floor to enjoy an amazing view of Madrid!
Plaza de Cibeles.
After Segovia we made a 45 minute visit to small town nearby called Pedraza.
Paella is the most typical dish in Spain and after a month I finally tried it thanks to my roommate who made some.
After an 8 hour drive I made it to Carnival in Cadiz in Southern Spain. Everyone was walking the streets, dressed up and singing!
The first picture I took in Madrid featuring Puerta del Sol and a mariachi band!
