So, where did I leave you?
Oh that's right, I was in Madrid visiting my brother.
After a couple of boozy nights I was looking forward to a nice sunny day exploring Madrid with JoBro. Until I opened the curtains on Saturday morning and it was raining and cold and yucky.
There is nothing like a little rain to make you want to stay in bed all day.
But no. It was my last day in Madrid. We were going to go out and enjoy the sights. I refuse to let the weather ruin our day.
So I dragged a half asleep Jonathan out of bed and got going.
We started at Sol.
We made a little visit to La Cure Gourmande to see all of their yummy sweets and cookies.
(but not eating them when you're on healthy eating!)
It was about 10 sizes too big and at 5ft 3in (1,61 m), it practically drowned me; but I embraced the oversized coat and made it in to my very own fashion statement.
It had all of the food and the drink you could think of. Cakes and tapas to make you go wow, so many beautiful colours and amazing smells. It was a delight to all of the senses!
The little stalls offered a variety of savoury and sweet tapas. Jamón ibérico, croquetas, designer mini hamburgers, oysters, cheese, cakes, pastries, chocolate and sooo much more.
There were wine specialists and beer stands, smoothie booths and champagne bars, coffee shops and winery's.bocata de chuleta de cerdo I'd made myself this morning with leftovers from last night's BBQ. I couldnt gorge on this deliciously smelling food!
A San Miguel I could manage though
Yup. It was goooood.
I'm definitely coming back here with a pocket full of money and an empty belly!
And tried not to get run over...
All for the sake of a few photos!
Definitely worth it.
