I’m from Rio and it’s my first trip to Europe. Madrid it’s a really nice city. The people and the parks are really great.
The difference I see between Spain and Brasil is mainly security and cultural history.
In Brasil, we don’t take care of the historical monuments like here in Madrid. I’m traveling alone for 45 days to 10 countries: Portugal, Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, Poland, Austria, Bulgaria and Holland, three days per city. I enjoy staying at the hostel because you meet new people and there is a fun atmosphere.
