Guide to Madrid, Spain

Hi all!

It’s been a while since my honeymoon city guides, and I can only say that it’s because I’m a Master Procrastinator. I meant to get all of these done so I could ping these links on the comments sections of bloggers that were asking for Spain tips a few months ago. Bah! Too much time has passed.

Honeymoon in Spain + 1 Day in Morocco


Hey, everyone!!

We’re back from our honeymoon. I missed you all too. Hehe. We got back on Tuesday night and my father was right: it takes about a week to recover from jet lag. In the days following our return, we would get sleepy around 6-8pm, and then be wide awake around 4-4:30am. IT SUCKED. I think we’re finally up to speed.

If you’ve been to Spain/Paris/Europe before (or live there), feel free to refute/add/agree with me. If you haven’t, you’re in for a super detailed treat from a first-time visitor to Spain/Europe. Questions welcomed.

I’m also writing it in case someone is thinking about going to Spain without an official guidebook. I really hope this helps you! I know it’s a lot to read, but I’m writing the kind of post I would have liked to have found when I initially started my research for our Spain trip.
