One more day in Madrid. The last one before flying back home again. We were doubting to visit Toledo for a while. Easy to reach from Madrid and supposedly a very nice city as well. But as Adri missed a couple of days we decided to spend the last day in Madrid. And I think in the end this was the right decision.Continue reading
November in Madrid – Part Three: Another Day
Day 3 in Madrid! The second and last day of Adri’s training. Giving me a couple more hours to explore the city on my own. Not much on my list for today other than the Torres de Colón, the National Library of Spain, the Prado Museum and the Royal Botanical Garden. And of course… more tapas!Continue reading
November in Madrid – Part Two: On My Own
The idea of spending the day alone was a little weird. Normally we enjoy these city trips together. But here I was nevertheless. At least we had a nice breakfast together and I got to walk Adri to her training location. After saying goodbye and knowing we would see each other soon again, I set out to find the statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree.Continue reading
November in Madrid – Part One: First Impressions
Me and Adri had never been in Madrid before. But when Adri got the chance to go there for work, luckily that changed. We used that opportunity to pay Madrid a visit together and booked an extra ticket so I could join her on her trip. 🙂 The training would take 2 days but we stayed a couple of days extra. This gave us more time to really enjoy and explore the city.Continue reading
Discovering the Medes Islands by Boat
Last day in L’Estartit. The next day we would be leaving again. We still wanted to do the boat trip. So we gave it another shot. We were happy to see the boat was leaving in the morning and would do a full trip (along the coast and around the Medes Islands). We boarded a big yellow boat called the Nautilus and off we went. The nice things about this boat is that is has a glass-bottom with underwater viewing. This makes it possible to see under water (only took some iPhone shots there) and have a look at the flora and fauna. The whole trip took about 1,5 hours and a strong stomach helps. 🙂
A Little Bit About Figueres
We woke up with the idea to have a boat trip in L’Estartit. But we changed our plans when we found out the boat would only do a small tour around the Medes Islands instead of the complete tour due to the heavy wind. So we decided to drive to Figueres and see the town of Salvador Dali instead.
Evening Fun at the Beach
When we came back from Girona we decided to have a (500 meter) walk to the beach and have a look. We only passed it by car but didn’t actually put our feet in the sand yet. With so much water around we knew Iván wouldn’t stay dry but seeing that big smile on his face was priceless!
