    October 22, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Bis morgen bin ich in Madrid auf einem Campingplatz.
    Die Stadt gefällt mir besser als Paris und ist wirklich einen Besuch wert. 🌃
    Leider regnet und hagelt es die ganze Zeit, deswegen habe ich auch kaum fotografiert. 🌨️

    Die Zeit auf dem Campingplatz nutze ich vor allem um meine weitere Route zu planen, Briefe an die Rentnerfraktion zu Hause zu schreiben, Wäsche zu waschen und generell einmal aufzuräumen und um meine nächsten Monate Zuhause vorzubereiten und zu planen.

    E anche quest'anno Christina ed io facciamo un viaggio insieme ed abbiamo scelto Madrid come meta. L'attesa come sempre è lunga, ma finalmente giunge il giorno della partenza...
    Partiamo da Venezia che ha sempre un suo fascino, ed arriviamo a destinazione con mezz'ora di anticipo.
    Una breve corsa con l'ormai testato Uber e siamo in centro città.

    Plaza de Toro

    November 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Arriviamo finalmente alla piazza dove c'è la grande Arena, anche questa in stile arabeggiante.
    Entriamo per la visita con un'audioguida. È molto interessante perché spiegano abbastanza bene come si svolgono le corride, l'importanza del toro e del torero, del pubblico e del presidente di corrida nel determinare i premi.
    Questa Arena è la più grande d'Europa e la terza al mondo.
    I tori da combattimento vengono allevati in campi molto ampi ed in libertà completa. Insomma finché non entrano in arena stanno benissimo e vengono trattati bene.

    I tori

    November 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    All'interno dell'arena ci sono alcuni tori imbalsamati tra i più famosi.
    Alla fine della visita c'è un museo Taurino con le foto ed i dipinti dei più famosi toreri ed i loro abiti. Ce ne sono alcuni ancora sporchi di sangue appartenuti si toreri morti in campo...
    Alla fine della visita piove e quindi andiamo a pranzo in un ristorante vicino dove ci sono alle pareti teste imbalsamate di tori e mangiamo la coda di toro in umido, specialità di Madrid.

    E siamo ora veramente alla fine della nostra vacanza. Questa mattina facciamo ancora un giretto fino alla Porta del Sol e riusciamo a fare ancora alcune compere...
    E' stata una bellissima settimana, ci siamo divertite ed abbiamo visto tantissime cose. Abbiamo sempre mangiato bene e ci siamo anche coccolate andando dal parrucchiere e non facendoci mancare nulla. Abbiamo camminato, camminato e camminato...
    Alla prossima!!

    Monday, Madrid

    September 25, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Little sleep on the flight over and we walked forever to wait in the customs line. When my turn came, the passport officer said not a word, but stamped my passport and I was on my way. Found an ATM that worked so got a few euros, and got assistance from tourist info to reach my hotel. Got to learn how to dial in this country. I'll try 011 in front of the number next time.

    At hotel, checked in and ready to take a metro to Puerto del Sol for food and sight seeing.

    Took the metro, but had lots of trouble finding it. I used my limited Spanish and was successful. Plazas Sol and Major were big and crowded . Folks here smoke more than Americans do and was it obvious. Tapas are wonderful and I made a meal of what I got. Rick steves audio guide gave me some difficulty as I had to restart often as the volume died.

    Anyway, after a fashion I realized that I gotta take a nap so all for now.

    Two hours and I feel great. Hope I can get some shut eye later. I've also learned that the Spanish have trouble giving directions that make sense. For example the directions I got this am for the metro seemed pretty simple...straight, then make a left. He even gave me a map. Wrong way as I had to ask multiple times and had all sorts of twists and turns before arriving at the metro, and finding a supermarket with directions proved to be an around the block twice effort. Go straight he says, but the street curved to the right. I found it and had a wonderful tuna salad sandwich for dinner.

    All for today...

    Laddar batterierna

    September 13, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Nu har vi mellanlandat i Madrid. Flygresan hit var både trång, obekväm och turbulent men huvudsaken är att vi kom fram iallafall.

    Nu sitter vi och laddar både våra egna och mobilernas batterier och vädrar fötterna i förebyggande syfte inför nattflyget till Lima.

    Egentligen skriver vi bara ett inlägg för att Fredrik vill ha en till plutt på kartan 😁 det är tydligen coolt att ha varit på många ställen!

    Headed Home

    July 15, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    We’re at Madrid airport, waiting for our flight to Atlanta. We returned to Santiago by bus on Sunday — no more walking! We had the rest of the day, and yesterday, to do our laundry and do some sightseeing. We also visited a couple of our favorite restaurants.

    The interior of the cathedral is empty of the pews and the massive organ pipes; scaffolding and plastic cover the walls. It’s being readied for 2021, the next Holy Year (when St. James’ birthday, July 25th, falls on a Sunday). The exterior was completed last year, and the Portico of Glory at the old entrance is now open to the public. This is the first time I was able to see the Portico, on my third trip to Santiago. But no photos were allowed, sorry!

    We had a great trip, no injuries or crises, and we’re actually feeling great. And now it’s time to go back to the “real world.”

    Thanks for coming along!
