Ruffles in Madrid

Hola from Madrid!
We took advantage of a long weekend to spend it in Spain’s central capital.

Unfortunately, the trip took off on a rocky start. While I won’t delve too much on the negative side, I will say this: NEVER do a new & tough workout right before a trip! I basically couldn’t walk the entire time as a result of severe overtraining, which is no bueno for sightseeing.

Anyway, Madrid itself is an interesting city. Although we didn’t find particularly that much to do, we just planned on eating our way through it, and that is exactly what we did. I was actually awe-stricken by the city’s architecture. Besides the notable landmarks, like the Royal Palace of Madrid, the Almudena Cathedral , and Plaza de Cibeles, the streets themselves rival those of Paris’.

One day of sightseeing, I wore this breezy off-the-shoulder tie dye dress, perfect for the last days of summer in quintessential Spanish style.
