The final stop on our honeymoon was Spain’s capital, Madrid, where we had three days to explore the city.
We stayed at Hostal Bermejo, which is a family-owned flat with several rooms for rent. The price and location were great, but the rooms were just okay.
We hopped on a touristy bus for a whirlwind tour of the city. Some of the highlights were Puerta del Sol, a popular urban square, and Gran Vía, which is an ornate and upscale shopping street. Some refer to Gran Vía as the Spanish Broadway, or the street that never sleeps.
We met up with Drew’s friend, Jorge, and had a night out on the town that started with a free concert series.
We spent our last day shopping for souvenirs and packing our bags. Then, we caught our last train to the airport.
Our honeymoon was one-of-a-kind, and we’re so thankful to our family who helped make it possible.
There is one thing you learn after flying >8000 miles, riding 10 different trains, driving >2000 km, visiting 4 countries and their 4 capital cities, and being away for a month: there’s no place like home!
