    Madrid Warnings and Dangers

    We were enjoying a drink in plaza de Santa Ana, quite near Plaza Major. My boyfriend went to the toilet and left his phone on the table as he had been taking photos.

  • No key, no air conditioning

    Perhaps it is this way all over Europe, but since our first experience was in Spain, I'm placing it here.For the first 10 minutes upon entering our room we thought we were given a room without power.
