Spanish Findings

It was the end of a summer dream but really not quite yet! We had 3 days to work out our Cuban / Latin jet lag in the land of the Spaniards. I am listing my newly discovered Top 3  things to do when in Madrid.

Did you know Madrid has a cable car? Take a trip across the city in a #Teleferico and get an ariel view of this stunning city. Points of interest to look for – The Palace & Madrid Cathedral. Take the train to station – Batan walk to the teleferic post do the ride and get off into the city walking straight to Plaza De Espanya. Trip cost @ 4.20 Euro per person.

Look for words! As you make your journey towards the city head for Calle Campomanes, 13. On your right, just up    the slope you will find #Desperate Literature, a tiny quaint bookshop with quirky little librarian. Pop in to find some funky finds or just something you’ve been meaning to get your hands on. Prices are at a complete bargain and come with almost a guarantee of having a mysterious touch and character of the past owner. As for us we got a date, a few scribbles and big bold Desperate Literature book stamp. Don Quixote @6 Euros

Starved and Parched….Then skip the Skippy chirpy waiters hawking at tourist at Plaza Mayor and walk to Calle Mayor. Look for #Mercado De San Miguel a place that is too saintly and holy not to miss! Walk around and have yourself a feast of endless Tapas starting at 1 euro to a max of 10 for ocean fresh Oysters of course. Drinks are priced at 3 euros a glass of wine and maybe the cheapest than anywhere else in the city. Just simply great atmosphere, delicious food and drink that’s gob smacking good!
