Last Day in Madrid!

Written by Jeff Drake

Hi folks!

I have to make this a quick post. I may get a chance to say more later. It’s hard to believe our trip is almost over. We leave on a flight tomorrow morning at (ugh) 6:00am. We won’t get much sleep tonight.

I do have more to say about our trip, as well as photos to share. We both have enjoyed Spain very much and want to return. Next time though, we’ll do it on our own. We’re planning a southern France, northern Spain adventure (Bordeaux, Provence, Barcelona and Basque region). I will be posting more about the trip even after we return.

I’d forgotten just how beautiful Madrid is – it is an architectural feast! We’re off to the Prado this morning and the modern art museum. We’ve been to Prado before, but as we are not sure when, if ever, we will return to Madrid, we’re going again because, well, it’s the Prado!

I hope all is well with everyone out there!


Let us know what you think…
