My adventure has officially begun. The morning greeted me in Madrid. The flight was long but well worth it. My grandmother would tell me how she loved Madrid at Christmas. It might not be Christmas but it is a wonderful mix of current times and centuries of history wrapped together.

I found a very accommodating hostel called The Hat to stay tonight. Wonderful place with friendly and helpful staff. If you ever find yourself in Madrid, I highly suggest you stay there. Very inexpensive. The rooms have Windows with shutters that open onto a small patio. This of course is perfect for hanging your wash.

My favorite place here is the Plaza Mayor dating back to the 1500s.

It is a cultural gathering place for all bordered by wonderful cafes. This area looks like a palace but I was told it has been a grand plaza forever.

Tomorrow I will venture by train to Sarria, Spain…I can’t wait.
