Paris might be the City of Lights, but Madrid is the city that comes alive at night. Get yourself a Sangria, and salsa your way through the streets. As bars open their doors, play music, people dance their way through to the early morning. There is no night like a Madrid one. However, doing this every night can result in a lot of hangovers, so instead have a mellow evening at the rooftop bar – La Azotea del Circulo de Bellas Artes. When a chilled vibe is needed this is the place to be. Sipping on white wine in the warm weather, watching the skyline twinkle will definitely rejuvenate your body.

We spent the days exploring Madrid as a city. From the Retiro gardens which is the home to the glass palace, the glass market, which FYI is actually a food market in a glass building to the Royal palace, there is enough to occupy your time in Madrid. Take a day to visit the Real Madrid Stadium, even if you aren’t a football fan, the self guided tour is an experience within itself. But, in all honesty, Madrid is probably not a city I would return to. It’s like, when you read a book, or watch a film, which you thoroughly enjoyed but probably won’t ever read or watch it again. That’s Madrid. For me, anyways. Nonetheless, it was a still a little gem that makes up part of this story..
