After a lovely week in Madrid it was time to show Malaga off to Matt.

A lot had changed since I was living there in 2006, so much of the construction work had finished and the city looked fantastic. The best things about it through were still the lovely little cafes and eating spots, the brilliant fresh food markets and exploring all its little and big streets that twist and turn and bring you out at unexpected places. At least until you get used to them.

Madrid and Toledo

sunny 31 °C

Madrid was brilliant. Long, hot days, fun hostel, and beautiful art.

We ate tons of Jamon Serrano, picnicking everywhere from plazas to a gorgeous park, watching the sunset and overlooking Madrid. We did a great free tour which gave us lots of fantastic historical details and tips about Madrid.

The hostel was great fun, we met a bunch of random people and even made our own little bottellon in the plaza and met some native (very underage) Madridites.

We went to El Prado two days in a row, making the most of their free hours and checking out the Thyssen and Reina Sofia on their free days too. We hung out in the main park, very pretty, and roamed the beautiful streets.

One also did a day trip out to the beautiful, historic town of Toledo. The whole city is like taking a step back in time. We went to all the 'must see' attractions, but the best part was just soaking up the city.
