Here is a small photo recap of our recent trips to Madrid and Barcelona. Sadly, there are only a few photos from Madrid because I had my first “tech fail” and lost quite a few shots. Without further ado – enjoy!  View Post

I did see it last time, however, only the exterior and only for a brief moment during our “free” walking tour of the city. Now it was time to get inside. View Post

The last time I was in Madrid was December 2010, during my backpacking tour of Europe with my BFF.
