It was sometime during the first week of October when I was sitting in front of my laptop determined to book a city break. I barely had any idea about where I wanted to go or what I wanted to experiment and therefore, I ended up buying a random flight to Madrid based almost entirely on the cheap price. Little did I know that a month later that would feel like I had gifted myself 3 beautiful days of spring in the middle of autumn.
The weather & the food, the food & the weather... I have no idea where to begin or where to end so I'm gonna limit myself to saying that I spent almost half of this trip looking for the best churros places (& eating churros ofc) and that the lovely weather had me unable to stay more than half an hour in a museum (one I was enjoying, I must say!)... I just couldn't allow myself to miss out on 25°C at the beginning of November.
Of course it's kinda needless to mention that the city itself is drop dead gorgeous - I'm sure you'll be able to catch a glimpse of that in the photos below. I personally perceived it as some sort of super successful combo between Lisbon and Paris, a combo I found myself enjoying a lot more than the other two.
