Madrid, Spain

Eighth stop on my dream trip around the world

My trip is winding down to a close as i am just starting the penultimate destination. The flight from Lisbon to Madrid was a short one, only 651km with a flight time of 1 hour and 15 minutes. The price of this flight is $180. While in Madrid i will be staying at the Hotel Europa for my one day visit, while in Madrid i am going to see the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, the stadium where arguably the best soccer team in the world plays and that is Real Madrid. I also want to do a bike tour which will go and visit various landmarks and points on interest.

The first full day in Madrid has finally arrived, and with that i have chosen to go visit the Real Madrid stadium since they are one of my favorite soccer teams. The stadium is massive and i am told that it seats a little over 80 000 people. Unfortunately Madrid will not be playing any home games during my stay, so the closest to the action I can get is a stadium tour. Since going to the stadium took a large portion of my day all i am going to do now is take a walk around town before heading back to my hotel for the night.

I had to cut the visit to Madrid to only a day so i can catch an event i have tickets for in Silverstone, England.
