I come from Ireland where the weather is rainy with gray skies so Madrid is amazing. I came on Friday for a long weekend. I explored the city, went to a few bars, to the market San Miguel, El Retiro, etc. Yesterday I went to Toledo.
I am traveling alone and I have the freedom to do what I want. I can kind of get up and go to bed when I want to. Eat and drink what I want, and if you to a hostel you meet people as well so you are never really alone.
I went to the pub crawl last night, it was really good, I met a few people. I really enjoy the food and drinks.
