Spain – Madrid

Madrid, Spain

In Madrid, as usually in capitals, you can find lots of attractions.
To be honest, it’s not my favorite city in Spain, but even there I found a few nice places (tomorrow I will show you one of them). Anyway, what I can recommend in Madrid, visit museums! There are many great museums in Madrid, definitely worth visiting even in a sunny day!

Spain – Capital

Madrid, Spain

Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain.
It’s kind of obvious, however, I’m not so surprised hearing that someone thinks that Barcelona is the capital of Spain. At the end, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and very famous tourist destination.

Spain – Don Quixote

Madrid, Spain

Do you know “Don Quixote” – the famous novel of Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes?

At some point, I liked it a lot. It’s not exactly the case, but for me it was like a synonym of “follow your dreams and be happy”. 🙂

p.s. Don Quixote will appear in a few of my posts in December; at this moment, let’s keep it short. 😉

Spain – Siesta

Spain

Siesta (an afternoon nap) is not only a Spanish thing, it exists in many countries.
Do you like an idea of siesta, or do you practice it?

I used to think, it’s kind of waste of time, but maybe with age I’m changing my mind. 😉

Spain – Agriculture

Sunflowers, Spain

Agriculture is a huge business in Spain.
When you’re in Spain, you can easily get fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables.
But Spanish fruits and vegetables that are in shops in other (colder) European countries are not considered as the good quality products. Definitely, something should be changed in this approach…
