Yesterday's dessert: baked apple filled and covered with chocolate sauce. Boom.
This building: I'm blue, da ba die da ba die, da ba de, da ba die, da ba die da ba die. Most buildings in Madrid are warm colors, like oranges, pinks, and reds, so this one always stands out. 🎈
Fresh strawberry season! Got these from the Mercado de Productores yesterday, a once a month market with artesanal products and lots of produce. We gobbled up the perfect strawberries and saved the rest for smoothies. We always surprise people with the amount of fruit that we eat (you should see our shelves just for bananas)! What's your favorite fruit? 🍌🍎🍉🍐🍑🍒🍍🍓🍇
May is possibly one of the best months in Madrid. The streets are alive with people throughout the night and the energy is infectious. We've walked up, down, and all around the city in the past few days with a visiting friend, so today it's a lazy morning of reading, writing, and watching funny videos on YouTube. What are everyone's plans for Sunday?
No better way to start a Saturday. We may be a bit obsessed.
Today we traversed Toledo to the fullest! Known as the City of Three Cultures (Muslim, Jewish, Christian), Toledo is a city with many layers of history. We walked for hours (and 21 km/13 miles!) through the winding and tiny streets, but one of our favorite spots was walking on a little dirt path by the river.
Homemade avocado sushi for days! Warm weather = not cooking as much in our small apartment. The real issue though is why is there no avocado emoji?! 😬
Today is #InternationalMuseumDay! Madrid's museums are free today and open late, plus there are free concerts to celebrate. 😀 Where are our fellow museum lovers at? What's your favorite museum or the most unique one you've visited?
Found some yummy empanadas and empanadillas! This one is filled with pisto, a Spanish dish made from tomato, onion, zucchini, peppers, and eggplant. That dough though! 😋
