Hello everyone! I am back from my amazingggg 2 week Europe trip that my sister surprised me with for my birthday! Literally THE BEST birthday surprise ever! The first place we visited was Madrid. We were there for 4 days and wish we could’ve stayed a few days longer. The weather was a bit crazy during our stay. Two days it rained and snowed ALL DAY so we couldn’t see as much as we had planned to. However, we didn’t let the crazy snowy weather stop us either, lol…we were out there walking around town and sightseeing while its snowing, standing in lines in the rain and when the weather was too bad then we were shopping.

So overall, we made the best of our trip and most importantly, amazing memories in streets of Madrid. I can NOT wait to go back!

Here's a bit of my trip that I was able to capture

 This is the Royal Palace. Pictures don’t do justice you guys, this place is beautiful and massive! If you’re ever in Madrid you HAVE to see it. Usually the lines are hours of wait and out the doors. Since the weather was bad and it was raining we got lucky and only waited about 25 minutes...but outside in the rain, so felt like hours lol. Wish I could show you guys more pictures but unfortunately, you cannot take photos inside. It was just breathtaking, seriously.

 How beautiful is this Church?! It's Almudena Cathedral, which is right next to the Royal Palace as well. So you see two attractions in one.

 One of the cafés I went to for brunch, Café De Oriente. This is the perfect place to go to before or after your visit to the Royal Palace, its right across the street and you’re view from the restaurant is that. On top of that it was soo cute inside, super friendly service and they offer a delicious 3 course meal for a reasonable price.

 Cute streets of Madrid! It was so fun just roaming these little streets and all of them were filled with cafes and shops.

 Spain is known for their cultural dance, Flamenco and no better place to watch it than in Madrid. I'm so happy we got to go to one of these shows, it was an amazing experience. Such a beautiful dance to watch...they perform with so much elegance and passion. It is a MUST if you're in town. Also, we didn't go to a typical touristy place to watch..we actually went to a small place where all the locals go and felt like we got the true authentic experience.  That is all for my Spain Diaries, hope you all like :)
