After a layover in Lisbon I had one day in Madrid before heading to Seville. Madrid is a huge city with lots of things to do, but the city center is quite small and walkable so it’s possible to squeeze a lot of things into one day. I started my day with a walk through … More Spain. One day in Madrid.
After five nights in Brooklyn and two on the Bowery (the recap is here) I moved to the Chelsea International Youth Hostel.

Recap Pt II: 4 days in Chelsea.

After arriving at Gare du Nord at noon and checking into my very basic hotel (very cheap and central – you can’t have it all), I strolled leisurely to my first stop: the restaurant Marcel on Rue de Montmartre for a very late breakfast.
