TRAVELING IN STYLE.....SPAIN: Madrid, Museums, Food and Shopping

Madrid Collage: Nick Verreos and David Paul--Madrid Spain November 2015

After we left London (Click HERE for that blog), David and I flew to Spain. We went to the cosmopolitan and very chic city of Madrid. I had been here before with my family but this was David's first time so this is why we came here. Madrid was wonderful! It made me step up my style game...those madrileƱos dress very well! Especially the abuelitas!

We were only there for two days before we took off to the Canary Islands so, yes, we had a short stay but enough to know, that we are returning as soon as my Frequent Flyer Mileage Plan can sustain it! We visited a couple of museums, ate lots of delicious food and did some "research shopping" at the iconic El Corte Ingles...
