Madrid and Home
July 26, 2018 - Madrid, Spain
(September 17. This is by now so out of date that you'll be wondering why I have, apparently, re-sent it. In fact I have added a paragraph on our visit to the Reina Sofia, which Sarah reminded me I had apparently forgotten. I am currently working on pictures to add.) David was up early this morning and back to the Mezquita when it opened at 8.30 so he could get some photos in  a different light. The rest of us were not so adventurous, but we all enjoyed our included buffet breakfast at the...

A Day in Madrid
July 17, 2018 - Madrid, Spain
  I have just written this, and the next day, on the plane between Madrid and Doha. Forgive the blunders, the illiteracy and the continuing lack of pictures. Tuesday 17th July A Day in Madrid As usual David had been for a walk before breakfast, this time up the Gran Via to the park. I can’t actually remember breakfast, except to say that it was another buffet like all the others we have had in ‘chain’ hotels – an extensive buffet with what I suppose is an attempt to cater for all...

Naxos to Madrid
July 16, 2018 - Madrid, Spain
For some reason we all woke up rather late this morning (except for Sue and Jackie) so it was a bit of a rush to pack and get breakfast. With blinds and shutters closed, our rooms in 'the apartment' are quite dark in the mornings - and anyway the sun doesn't rise until after 7 - so perhaps that explains it. We had ordered the hotel shuttle to the airport for 9.30, and I was the last to get to breakfast (being, I believe, the most obsessive packer), and I was just beaten to it by what looked...

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...
