A few photos from my short trip to Sevilla in October last year. I spent two days in Sevilla after a layover in Lisbon and one day in Madrid.
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.
A few pictures from my 24 hours in Alicante in June 2017 after I visited Valencia (recap) and Calpe. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace of my wonderful B&B La Milagrosa. It’s right in the old town and also close to the beach and single rooms cost a little as 40€/night. I highly recommend this place … More Spain. Alicante. A photo post.

On my way to New York I had a 21 hour long layover in Madrid and this visit could be summed up as “walk, drink, eat, repeat”. After checking into my hostal on Calle Fuencarral I walked over to the Mercado de San Anton in Chueca. This market sells fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and cheese … More Spain. 21 hours in Madrid.

The 18 food stalls on 3 floors offer snacks, street food and typical Spanish tapas. Additionally there’s a bar on each floor and 2 indoor terraces. I visited at … More Madrid.

Just a few days ago I booked a weekend trip to Rome (30€ return flights with RyanAir!) for the end of this month. A few things on my to-do list: … More Travel plans 2016
