My Trip to Madrid

On the 6th July me and my boyfriend headed to Madrid for a 4 day city break, i thought i would share a bit about what we did and a few photographs of our holiday, i hope you enjoy!

Day 1
We had only arrived in Madrid at 3 o'clock due to being delayed 2 hours and by this point we were very sleepy after having no sleep and having a 7 hour coach journey from Liverpool to London. So when we arrived we explored the hotel and the local area. Our hotel was situated on the Gran Via, one of Madrid's largest shopping streets and to be honest it really reminded me of Oxford Street so its safe to say i spent alot of time here!

Day 2
This day we went to one of Madrid shopping centres in the morning, the had all the usual shops but we went at such a good time of the year because all the sales were on so i picked up a few bits from Zara, Pull and Bear and Starvidansds. I may do a haul let me know if youd like that. 
Later that day we decided to visit Retiro Park Madrid's most well known park, its known for its beautiful gardens and big lake were you can hire out boats which we most definitely did and it was lots of fun, heres some photos of the park!








Day 3
This was our last full day in Madrid before heading off tomorrow afternoon and we got lost, this whole trip we had used the metros and today we did the same we researched before we left how to get to the largest shopping centre in Madrid that had indoor skiing and mini golf only to be told when we got there that we were miles away so we decided to go and look at the Santiago Bernabeau stadium, which is where Real Madrid play. 
Then later we stopped of for a drink, were i got a strawberry slush (my favoruite thing in the entire world) and it was just as good as it looks! 






Finally here is two photos of me and my boyfriend whilst we were in Madrid, i don't think I've ever put up a photo of us two on my blog, so for those of you who don't follow me on my social media, this will be the first! 


 Have you been away recently or have any holiday planned?
