Lauren & Georgia’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 02 Jun 2011

Location: Madrid, Spain

MapSo I have been a little slack and havenít been updating my blog daily. Truth is that there isnít much to tell. It rained a lot in Ibiza so that dampened our plans of discovering a beautiful beach! We didnít do too much more partying after the opening of Space as that blew our minds as well as our budget.

We were able to pay for a late checkout from our apartment which was lucky considering the weather we experienced. We made it to the airport on time and our second flight with RyanAir went well. Everyone cheered once the plane landed, I assume they were happy that the plane didnít crash, etc as I guess RyanAir have a bad reputation.

After catching three trains we safely arrived at our hostel in Madrid and am so far extremely impressed. After checking in we decided to go for a walk to the supermarket to buy some toothpaste. While we were there hot, fresh baguettes came out of the oven. We ended up buying one and some cream cheese, along with a bottle of wine and having that for dinner. It was nice making some friends in the kitchen while we ate and then a group of us went out to a pub down the road for one euro beers. I liked the fact that when the pub closes they give you plastic cups to take your beer with you!

We are a little bit hungover this morning but just had our free breakfast which consisted of toast with Nutella, it seems to be curing it so far. I donít think we will have a big day today but am planning on doing a little bit of sightseeing with a few of our new friends.
