60+ hours in Madrid

If I had to name five of my favorite countries in the world, Spain would most definitely make the list. I have never lived there, but I’ve been to Spain before on an extended vacation with my family and had the most marvelous time. Spain captured my heart and it isn’t letting go.

Spain’s capital is just a short(ish) flight away from Copenhagen and if you’re willing to fly discount airlines (such as RyanAir) bargains are to be had!

One day Tania, Greta and I were just sitting there, complaining about how hard life can be sometimes when we decided it would be a good idea to get away for the weekend. The idea was Greta’s, but Tania and I soon jumped on it! For about the price of a train ticket to Odense (a city about an hour and a half away from Copenhagen), we got plane tickets to Madrid!
