Saturated in history, culture, stunning buildings and some very tempting edibles, the city of Madrid is one not to be avoided.
The reason we were here was because it was our gateway to the continent after our stint in Iceland, and seeing we’d done Madrid back in 2002, running around the well-trodden tourist trail in blistering summer heat wasn’t on the agenda.
It was time to settle into our cute Airbnb apartment in Chueca, hang out at cafés, seek out some decent, inexpensive food and relax.
The great thing about staying in Chueca is how central it is. As small as the neighbourhood is, it sure packs it in when it comes to shopping, eating and nightlife; and being the city’s premier gay barrio, you can strut your stuff along with the locals and have a fabulous time doing it.
