24th- 26th April 2016
It was a beautiful day in Madrid, Espania. We arrived in the afternoon, the silent hours in Spain which is called siesta, whereby the local will use the hour to take a nap.
We dropped our stuff at the apartment and resumed the tour to the Plaza Mayor. We were just lucky as we reached the plaza at happy hour when a pan of pizza just cost 1euro. Whee~
Yes, that was the most decent lunch that we could find here. Finding a proper bench to eat was another story. So we decided to have the lunch bites in the middle of the plaza. Definitely it was exciting and lively.
We proceeded walking to the Royal Palace of Spain.
The palace is huge (well, obviously~) so we spent quite some time for evening stroll around the palace - gate. Haha
Second day in Madrid, we kicked off our day early to go to Real Madrid FC Stadium. Well, every bytes of wireless data was just priceless. This was where we waited outside apartment before the rest were ready.
Well I am not really a fan of any football club, but chances to visit the homeland of well-known club like this dont come every day, yes?
From Madrid , we went travelled to Granada, an ancient city where the great historical structure of Alhamdra is situated.
The city is one of the lay back city that we stayed. I like the surrounding of the city, and having a long walk in chilled day was rather enjoyable.
The tour was split by two languages, one in English and one in Spanish. There were time when we lost from our group(well, snapped pictures and posed like nobody's business, what do you expect~), so we hung out with the Spanish group. Definitely none of her explanation was understandable, but seeing her audiences listened with intensity, I felt impressed as the tour guide herself delivered the information with passion in her eyes. I fell in love with Spanish people instantly. Ah~
Ah well, let's have some more pictures taken.
Among of the attractions, we were brought to the spot where we can observe the Alhambra gate. Yes
,that was what beggars like us would have for our piece of Alhambra memories. Or else , we gotta spend handsome amount of euro to get the access to the ancient building.
We walk along Morroco-styled street market and bumped into this restaurant when we started starving. We had our local lunch just in time of siesta when the shops started to close. We finished with the lunch, strolled to hotel while doing some shopping. Overall the experience were awesome!
