I chose Madrid for my first solo trip. I wanted to visit any city in Europe, with coffee and food, bars, and lots of events. Hmmmm but that sounds like any city in Europe? Madrid was honestly like throwing a dart to the map.
I don’t speak Spanish, I thought I’d figure it out when I arrive.
My trip was April 6 – 23, 2015
Turns out!!! Spanish people are insanely nice and welcoming. I stayed in Madrid for two and a half weeks at two AirBNB hosts: Malasaña neighbourhood and Lavapiés neighbourhood.
