Madrid Cumpleaños

For my birthday I was lucky enough to visit my best buddy in Madrid for a long weekend. With a cocktail shake of tourism, edgy bars and tapas consumption - this city break did more than fill my obsession for all things Zara. As I arrived to Madrid, I was overwhelmed by the individual boutiques, shops and restaurants in the Tribunal area. Not only was I welcomed with a cupcake birthday surprise on the strike of 12, but I enjoyed a line up of touristic adventures on the day itself. Our action pack sight-seeing excitement had ranged from the Museo Nacional del Prado, Plaza Mayor, Crystal Palace to the awesome Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia.

And of course in Spain, I ate and drank like a King. The Mercado de San Miguel was one of the most delicious food market ever. Not to forget that wine is cheaper then water in this place! Although I opted for octopus almost everyday, the different bars and restaurants are noted under my photos for reference. Despite leaving on the Sunday, I was glad to have ended my time at the Bric a Brac market stalls in the Mercado de Motores Transport Musuem. I was told it comes twice a week and possibly the only time I've ever seen the Spanish form an orderly queue - and no wonder why, the vibe was awesome! With live music and arty market stalls, it was all laid on the train tracks under one roof. 

I just wanted to give a big thanks for my buddies Sophie and Laura for a pretty special time in Madrid.
