A short break
Having not taken any time off over Christmas and the New Year (and thanks to an amazing cheap flight with EasyJet) I managed to take a few days off and head for a long weekend in Madrid. Whilst I didn't quite "fall in love" with Madrid, as the guide book had promised, it was a lovely city to spend a few days wandering around. We went to the three main art galleries (I don't want to see another painting for quite a little while), gorged ourselves on tapas, and joined in the celebrations as both Madrid teams won their football matches. I am not sure I would have wanted to spend much more time in the city but when you can fly for as little as £20 each way it is worth a weekend away to recharge the batteries.
