We heard about The Nutcracker (Cascanueces in Spanish) that would be showcased by Hillsong Madrid in the week we were looking for a home here in Madrid.
For those of you that don´t know me or are new to this blog, we recently moved from Gran Canaria (one of the 7 islands of the Canary Islands) to Madrid. So on Sunday the 17th of December 2017 we headed to the centre because we live approximately 45 min by train / 30 min by car fom the centre of Madrid.
I wanted to go a bit earlier to have a walk in Retiro Park before the show started but when we left the parking, where we parked our car, we walked past a hotel with the most festive entrance and a door man and it immediately reminded me of Harrods. Not that I´m British but I love London and have been there quite a few times (too little in my opinion). Ok so to get back to my story, when we looked in, through the huge doors, we could see a massive Christmas tree in the centre of the foyer of the hotel and I knew right there and then that it was where I wanted to be.
