Madrid is called “the Queen of Spain,” and indeed she is!
My first HOP ON was at Plaza de España, and my first HOP OFF at the Royal Palace, which is an amazing, imposing, baroque palace. Then, HOP ON again and OFF at Plaza Mayor for an ice cream, together with Spider Man (if you’ve been there, you know this guy).
It was time for my next HOP ON though!
I loved losing myself in that museum-city.
Didn't know what would be best to see first, but to be honest, I didn't really care. I loved that HOP ON-HOP OFF bus, because wandering in the city is so much easier with it. So, let me tell you how perfect it is to ride this bus: Its ticket price is low, the route is amazing, with all must-see sights included, it's clean, it's comfortable, it's very well organized. This bus was made for you, for you are a HOPPER, after all.
The El Retiro park was definitely my best HOP OFF. Whether you want to enjoy a long walk in the park, or take part in any of the many activities available, whether you are a romantic, and you’d enjoy a mini boat trip, or you are a yogi, THIS place will be your paradise. Grab a strawberry juice, and enjoy moments like these in El Retiro.
MY BEAUTIFUL MADRID!
Last but not least: I had my Tapas and drunk my Mojitos. In the region Chueca, I rested my legs, I gathered my pieces, I pondered, once again, on how life would be without travel, and with a mojito in one hand I prepared myself for the next day in Club de Campo Villa for the amazing horse riding show.
Final remark about a day well-lived: To travel is to live, and I feel so lucky I am living it.

I even made some tasty new friends.
