July 14 Sleepy in Madrid

We arrived!!!

We flew into  Madrid on a flight that departs at 6:20 pm in Boston and arrives at 7:10 am in Madrid. Despite the freeee red wine (win!), Iberia provided a bumpy ride full of high school students (fail!). So hardly any sleep for us! Oh yeah, and the food sucked (major fail!).

Despite being super tired, we got so excited once we got to our adorable little hotel right in the middle of everything. Our goal for today is to make sure we don’t sleep all day or fall asleep at 7:30 pm or anything that would set us to a weird schedule for the rest of the trip. Once we got in, we decided we wouldn’t sleep until after lunch and then wake up and go out so we wouldn’t go to bed crazy early.

We found a cute little cafe next door to our hotel with soy cappuccino and fruit and smoothies…also right next door is a Starbucks. Susanne gets migraines from caffeine, but I’m a serious addict so I was relieved.

We then went to the Palacio Real. A gorgeous palace with seemingly unending rooms with walls covered in tapestries, decorated with sculptures and paintings and thrones.

After that, we went to lunch super early…around 12. Most Madrillenos lunch closer to 2. Under 10 minutes from our hotel, we found an all vegetarian buffet attached to a small grocery store, Vida La Vida. We were thrilled to find delicious seitan dishes, lentil and mushroom salads, rice dishes, sushi and more. And everything that is vegan is clearly marked vegano!

Some shots from our day: walking in Madrid, at the Palacio Real, and Vida la Vida.
