Average Adventure: Madrid, Spain

First things first, whoops on the post that was supposed to go up tomorrow. Anyway, after going to London, my next stop was Sevilla, but it’s to expensive to go straight there. I was going to try and work out the bus from Madrid to Sevilla, but they don’t accept American cards online so instead, I chose to take the train the next day and spend the night in ┬áMadrid, because that was still cheaper than flying straight to Sevilla, plus I got to see more of Spain. While I’m super glad I went to London and Brighton, I kind of wish I got to spend more time in Spain, but that just means that I’ll have to go back one day.

Part of the problem about going to Spain was that I remember very little Spanish. I knew very little of what things said. This was some type of museum, of what I’m not sure.

I found it really interesting that so many of their street signs were covered up with stickers. I thought it looked really cool but also it might be confusing to drive around if you don’t know your way.

Here’s some treetops.

My favorite thing about Spain was that everything was so intricate and there was so much attention to detail. This was just the Metro but the gate was detailed, the sign was detailed, it was just nice place.

Then finally just a few more snaps of Madrid. It’s just a very pretty place. I took a lot of pictures but unfortunately most of them were not in focus or I hated them, so this is it for now.

12 Days of Christmas starts tomorrow!

Average Adventure: Washington DC with Jade!

Yesterday I went to visit my friend Jade in DC. Getting there is always an adventure since I drive to the metro station,and then I had to transfer to go and meet her but I didn’t get lost at all! I would like to apologize because this is going to be a picture heavy post and I’m shying away from the way I typically post pictures (the square gallery thing) because I don’t want to do it that way. Also, a video should be posted tomorrow or Monday too!

This is the steepest escalator I have ever ridden.

Fun fact about me, I’m obsessed with towers on buildings. I just imagine sitting on a window seat reading a book whenever I see them.

We went to Nandos for lunch! Per usual I forgot to take a picture of my food before I started.

DC has some of the most amazing architecture in my opinion. I just find buildings very interesting.

Selfies in front of the White House. Well the back of the White House.

I’m pretty sure these are the only pictures of me without my glasses. My sunglasses are prescription so I hate switching between the two.

Everyone needs a picture of the Washington Monument and the Metro.

I’m not sure where my next adventure will be, but this little one was fun. It’s also nice to see people from home even when you’re away.

Have a great Saturday!
