One of my very best friends just told me that she is moving to Madrid, Spain! While I am so sad that she is leaving us (Adios Carolina!), it actually will be the perfect excuse for me to jet set to this incredible Spanish city that I have been wanting to go to for awhile (Hola Madrid!). When most people think of Spain, they think of Barcelona and the beaches, but there has been a recent boom in Madrid, and there are now more hip hotels, trendy restaurants and stylish shops all waiting to be discovered!
On my Madrid List of Things to Do & See:
1- Visit the Prado Museum
2- Stay at the Hotel Urban
3- Eat at El Mollete
4- Hear Spanish music at Cafe Central
5- Shop at Laura Caicoya
6- Sip a cocktail at Fernando del Diego
7- Walk around the Plaza Mayor
8- Watch a Flamenco Show at Cardamomo
9- Have a picnic in Parque del Buen Retiro
10- See the San Francisco el Grande Basilica
Now it's time to search for cheap flights!
