I didn’t only want to visit Vicki in Madrid beginning of April but also trade in the cold weather in Denmark for some warmer and sunnier days in Spain. But while it had 20 degrees in Denmark, temperatures in Madrid would only reach six degrees with lots of rain.
I took a late – and then even delayed – flight to Madrid. So by the time I finally arrived at Vicki’s place, it was already 1.30 am. Thus, we started the following day a bit later and had brunch at El Invernadero Salvador Bachiller before exploring Madrid. In the evening, we first had pre-drinks and then went with Vicki’s American friends to Teatro Kapital, the biggest club in Madrid, where we danced all night long. That’s why we also wouldn’t get up before noon the next “morning”. Yet, as it was not raining that day, we did some sightseeing and visited Palacio Real de Madrid, Plaza Mayor, and Teatro Real while grabbing a bocadillo for lunch at Mercado de San Miguel. After walking along Gran Via for a little longer, in the evening, we went to Montaditos, where you get nearly everything on the menu for only 1 Euro on Sunday.
The following two days, Vicki had to work and classes at university afterwards. So, I spent some time alone walking around the city and met Babsi for drinks at a rooftop bar Monday evening, where also Vicki joined later. On my last day, I had a relaxed morning and only met Vicki and Babsi for coffee to say goodbye in the afternoon before heading to the airport and back to Denmark. And I must say, while I didn’t really like Madrid when I visited the first time and although the weather was not the best, I enjoyed Madrid and spending time with Vicki and Babsi there.
