From Madrid with love




Hi lovelies! I'm baaaaack. Oh..my god! I had such an amazing time in Madrid, I can't even begin to tell you why. No just kidding of course I am. The food was just beyond. Being half spanish I know what good spanish food looks and tastes like so I really had to avoid any touristic places selling 'google looking paellas' and find the good old tapas bars and little restaurants. Me and the boyf basically spent 6 days walking - eating and shopping!  This city has such an amazing vibe, everybody is outside all the time drinking cervezas, enjoying life and speaking loudly. I love it! Little did we know, we went the week of the biggest celebration in Madrid called San Isidro. It was so cool, there was many festivites to celebrate all week long, like the most amazing flamenco concert I have ever seen in my life in Plaza Mayor at night. I got chills from the music!

I have discovered many neighborhoods - well pretty much every one in the centrum - and I have to say that my favourite by far was La Chueca. It's the best place to enjoy delicious tapas - my favourite place was the Conache, food was to die for - and live the Madrid life at its fullest. There are basically no tourist and many students, vintage shops and tapas bars of course! It's not far away from the touristic area and far much better! I already miss eating patatas bravas with a glass of tinto de verano con limon, chipirones y calamares, pimientos del padron y jamon ibérico on toast! I also did some shopping damages at Zara, It would have been rude not to with their lower prices, right? My feet are so sore from all the walking but it was so worth it!

XO,MARILOU
