madrid, part dos

more madrid!
{see madrid part one here}
^^ cava baja. one of the best little streets!
{especially for tapas}
^^ scootering down the grand via was 
a favorite moment for sure. it is the main
street with hotels, theatres, and shops,
and we were staying right on it. after trips
i always ask chase what his favorite moments
were, and this was definitely one of them!
^^ chase was pretty excited to visit the real madrid
bernabéu football stadium, wow it's enormous!
they sure love their football {soccer} here!
plaza de españa
{above and below}
^^ fuente de la cibeles
mercado de san miguel...
we are always suckers for
any type of food market.
one word: tapas.
we are suckers for these too.
^^ plaza de toros de las ventas,
the bullfighting stadium
^^ we stopped at the google madrid office,
it was incredible and had the best views
and food! it's so fun to visit google's offices
when we travel, they always have amazing locations.
^^ photographing plaza mayor
^^ i'll probably never get over our 
hotel atlantico in madrid. so so incredible.
and...you have to go to zara in spain, 
because it's the birthplace, hello!
on to portugal!
