Taking the train to Madrid
September 30, 2017 - Madrid, Spain
Breakfast at the Sercotel La Coliseo was from 7.30am on the weekend and our train was to leave at 9.20am so we needed to be at breakfast for the early shift and ready to go by about 8.45am for the short walk to the station. Although there were hot choices and Margaret went for beans on toast, I stuck to the formula from our rural times and went for juice, toast, meats and cheese. It was all good and the many options I didn't take looked appetising as well. Even the coffee from this dispensing...

Return to Madrid
August 25, 2015 - Madrid, Spain
Our train was to leave at 5:25pm so, after another filling breakfast, we left our bags with reception and went for a walk down to the El Greco Museum. After wandering a few back streets in the Jewish Quarter we arrived at the museum and went in to the peaceful gardens. The museum is in a 16th Century house surrounded by gardens and underneath part of the gardens are Roman Cellars which we explored before going inside. The house is supposed to be similar to the house in which El Greco lived...

Reina Sofia and Prado
August 22, 2015 - Madrid, Spain
Margaret had organised to get online tickets for the Reina Sofia and the Prado which combined both museums and allowed us to also see the touring exhibition of works by Picasso, Kandinsky, Miro among others from the Kunstmuseum Basel so we set off to walk down past the Prado to the Reina Sofia and visit that gallery first. My unerring sense of direction turned left instead of right and led us up the Garden Path, quite literally. Well done, Max! In either direction the roads, the Paseo de...

Avila and Segovia
August 21, 2015 - Madrid, Spain
I had nearly finished this entry when my lack of technical prowess and a slow internet, and perhaps Sod as well, all conspired to wipe it out. Max said, never mind, now you can improve on the last one which was either a comment about the last one (which he had read) or an expression of hope. Anyway, I started off last time with a shamefaced confession that I had remembered that George Orwell's book is in fact 'Homage to Catalonia', not Barcelona. Oops! After breakfast at the Hotel Catalonia...

Moving to Madrid
August 20, 2015 - Madrid, Spain
Our train was to leave Barcelona at 10am so we figured we would need to get a taxi about 8:45am to have plenty of time for any eventualities. With that in mind we were up and packed and, leaving our bags ready to grab later, we walked out into a deserted Les Rambles for a last look around. The little cafe across the road seemed tempting so we went in for a coffee and croissants for breakfast. While we were there we picked up some filled pannini to take with us on the train. We were dropped at...
