Thank you, Spain for being beautiful and amazing!
Below are some photos from Madrid.
|Royal Palace of Madrid.|
Due to our arrival taking place during their Bank Holiday our tour was cancelled and we were not able to visit the inside. I heard it was spectacular and look forward to going back and taking the tour.
|Love this Purple building outside the Royal Palace!|
|Geppetto, a cute toy store.|
The store was packed with adults and little kids alike all admiring the handcrafted detail of each wooden figurine.
|Museo del Jamon|
|Hotel Catalonia Atocha|

|Cuesta de Moyano Book Market|
The park reminded me of Central Park, especially when we arrived at the Great Pond. Everyone was out and about as the weather was just perfect.
We also stopped by Palacio de Cristal, which happened to be under construction. A new exhibit was going to begin in the next few weeks. With the open and airy space you were able to dream what different events would look like.
After the park we walked over to the Madrid Atocha Railway Station. Home to the largest railway station in Madrid, it caters to both local travelers as well as the high speed trains to Barcelona, Seville and Valencia. The concourse is home to restaurants, shops and a 43,000 sq ft covered tropical garden housing turtles. Yep, you heard that right and you can see for yourself below.
|Seafood Paella ( My favorite dish)|
Next up I will recap Toledo.
