Madrid, Spain: Mid-Semester Break! What a great vacation. Jack and I left at the crack of dawn to catch a bus to Liverpool St. station, then to get on the Stansted Express, and finally to hop on a plane to Madrid, Spain. But the whole week was absolutely worth all that trouble.
I have to say, I definitely enjoyed fratting out with my favorite bro/friend, Alex, and not having to worry about waking up early. In fact, almost every day, we slept in till 2 p.m. – and no one frowned at us, enjoyed lunch till about 4 p.m., took a nap at 8 p.m., and woke up at 10 p.m. for dinner, annnnnnd the nightlife began at around midnight. FANTASTIC!!!
Despite not being able to communicate at all, thanks to Jack, we got around just fine. It did make me a bit sad to find that though I speak English & Korean fluently and can hold basic conversations in German, it was as if I was a total alien. Does that mean now I need to go learn some Spanish? Anyways…
Here is my 5 days in Madrid picture diary:
– At Kapital. A club with seven floors (with the top flooring being this wonderful lounge). You can find anything from a crazy dance to karaoke. Of course we dominated by singing Bohemian Rhapsody. Win.
Overall, I loved spending time in Madrid. I have to say, though, staying there for a long period of time might not be too suitable for me. It was fantastic for a week when I definitely needed some break from London and classes. Now, I am so happy to be back in London. 🙂
