Hello, everyone, I hope many of you are doing well.
Last year I went to New York which you can read in my previous post about My New York Spring break
I’ve spent two weeks in Spain visiting Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville.
I will try to resume everything and mention places that I manage to visit.
First of Madrid
I was right in the center of Madrid. I kinda felt that I was back on Ave. 28 in New York City but in Spanish.
Now Madrid there are so many places that you can visit from food, stores, and many art places.
When people tell you that you need to visit El Museo Nacional del Prado first, then yes, you should visit first.
I spent about 4 hours inside El Prado seeing many different artworks from Goya, Caravaggio, Velazquez, El Bosco, to Luis Paret. The Museum doesn’t allow you to take pictures but it is worth the visit to see amazing artworks from many well-known painters.
I went alone and sat in front of the bar and ordered myself a Spanish omelet and some croquettes with truffles and of course, a draft beer that I unfortunately do not remember what I drank.
I can’t skip coffee so I will be mentioning a cute local coffee shop and that is Punto Kafé. They’re pretty new and I learned that they opened their coffee shop 4 weeks ago. I feel pretty lucky that I found them. The employees are super
friendly and they made one of the best coffee that I drank during my visit.
Want to go for a nature walk?
Okay, the next stop would be 2×1 because of nature. El Jardín Botánico which is right next to El Museo Nacional del Prado. The entry is very affordable and on Tuesday the entry is free. I went on a Tuesday and I was enjoying the long walk seeing different types of plants and learning some of their names and origins. After an hour or two I went to El Parque de los Retiros and just casually walked around. The park is pretty big so it may take a whole day to walk all the places.
Now let’s go to Barcelona.
Barcelona is the hotspot for any art aficionado. The majority of the buildings are Art Novouea which I was gushing over.
Later on, we visited Casa Batlló which was a lot of fun inside of the house they give you an interactive device that plays like an old school phone and you press a number that corresponds to the place and they will explain the details. It was truly magical.
Next and final stop to Seville.
Seville is a truly magical place. Everyone is super friendly to the point that I fell in love with the town and their people.
We went to a Michelin restaurant called El Disparate. I ordered cod with green veggies and it was exquisite and the dessert was amazing too.
A few days later I found a pink coffee shop called Moya Brunch. We ordered burgers, yup we wanted to eat some good hamburgers with champagne and let me tell you it was the best burger. Again, the staff was super friendly and everything was in pink which is my favorite color.

Visiting Spain was quite surreal. Their food, art, and history are something worth visiting.
