Dreaming of Madrid

Dreaming of Madrid
Tracy and I love to travel. There is just something so exciting about traveling to and exploring new places. If we haven’t planned a big trip to one of our favorite places, we try to go somewhere new every year. Sometimes these are just shorter trips to places closer to home. There are just so many places that we would love to travel to. Spain, Paris, London, and Prague are just a few places on my list. Where would you like to go?

This year we are traveling back to New York City. NYC has been one of our favorite places. We have been multiple times now and always look forward to going back. There are just so many things to do and see. We always revisit our favorites from previous trips and then fit in some new things. Planning these trips is just so much fun!

While we love going to new places, neither of us have ever been out of the country. In thinking about where we would like to go on our first trip traveling out of the country, one of our top picks is Madrid. Of course, we would stay at Radisson Blu Madrid. We would have to walk along the Gran Via. Touring museums like the Prado to take in the art and history would be a must. Seeing a musical is also on our list of things to do in Madrid. While sightseeing and people watching we would enjoy some tapas or maybe some chocolate con churros from San Gines? Seeing flamenco dancers in Madrid would definitely be something we would want to experience.

There are just so many things that we would want to do in Madrid like see the Royal Palace, eat at Botin, shop at the Rastro Flea Market, and so much more. What do you recommend? What would be on your itinerary for Madrid?

  4. Such a beautiful place to go visit so many I will love to go to . Happy weekend

  5. NYC! Well, that is always on the top of my list! I have been there once, but it is not enough..every year since then (4 years ago) I am dreaming of going back! Madrid on the other hand, is one of my fav european cities ever! I have been there a couple of times, and to my humble opinion, I prefer it than Barcelona.,(queen of Spain to some). in terms of originality, culture, eating, going out... Prado is unique but I really liked more Queen Sofia Arts Center , maybe because it is smaller and more visitor friendly (but again my opinion!).. well, absolutely not to miss is a flamenco show!
    Looking forward your posts from NYC!

  6. I love how you have the Madrid trip all planned out...:-). I have not traveled much too and would love to visit all those great cities in Europe whenever I get the opportunity.
    Have a great weekend ladies.
