Madrid in photos (& Recommendations)



We all know that Winter has it's perks, but with it comes an array of downsides. It's not only the season for cute party dresses, hot chocolate and barrel loads of chocolate, but also the one for hot water bottles, copious amounts of Lemsip, and truck loads of cough medicine. So if you've been wondering where I've been for the past week, I'd have to say, buried under a pile of blankets, with the blinds closed. Yep it wasn't pretty. I'd love to say I'm one of those people who takes illness in their stride and still manages to go to the gym, do 100 different things, and still somehow look like an absolute God, but I'm really not. My reality is more, stay in bed, binge on Netflix and... well... moan a lot till it passes. So anyway, I'm sorry for the lack of posting, but I'm starting to feel a lot better and will *hopefully* be back to my regular uploading schedule from now on. 

During the summer, I had the amazing chance to stay with my Spanish friend in Madrid. She took me to some of her favourite places and showed me around Madrid. She also took me to El Escorial which is just outside of Madrid, and houses the historical residence of the King of Spain. Being a local she knew all the best places to go, and I feel so damn lucky to have had her as my own mini tour guide. Needless to say the whole trip was incredible! I thought I'd share some of my favourite photos from the trip, as it's something I love to look at on others blogs.

I will leave all the names of the places below the photos. I also thought I'd leave a little rating to rank highest recommendations to lowest. I obviously loved everywhere I went, but appreciate that a lot of people may not have as much time and might not be able to see everything.
