A year in Europe followed by a move to Bangkok

48 Hours in Madrid - Day 1

Jake was away for work while I stayed in Madrid and upon his return, we had two days to spend together in Madrid before heading to Provence. While he was away, I had seen and learned so much about the city, and I wanted to show him everything!  

Dinner at Gastromaquia in Madrid

A tapas adventure is the best way I can describe our dinner at Gastromaquia.  The tapas were unique and creative.  The staff could not have been nicer.  The owner came to our table and translated the entire menu into English for us, which was above and beyond.  The menu was huge, so translating the entire thing was no small undertaking.

Afternoon Tea at the Ritz in Madrid

I have always loved afternoon tea.  Miniature pastries?  Beautiful china?  Bite sized sandwiches?  Sign me up!  So, when Jake agreed to have afternoon tea with me at the Ritz in Madrid, I couldn't wait to introduce him to the ritual.
