Travelogue: Mini Madrid

Posted on Saturday, December 15, 2012

Hello all! I've reached Madrid safely and reunited with Justin after four long months :}

One good things about the hiccup in transits (my flight was delayed by an hour and I missed my connecting flight!), was that I chanced upon a small Lauduree push cart in the Paris Airport, and treated myself to 3 amazing macarons - Vanilla, Salted Caramel and Orange Blossom!

I sat in the airport watching the planes and munching my macarons, and they really put all their Singaporean counterparts to shame - crisp on the outside, smooth and creamy on the inside. It's something that you have to try yourself, in which no picture can describe. Though I only transited in Paris for an hour, I'm glad I finally had the chance to try them after waiting for so long!

We went for a walking tour this morning around Madrid! Here we are at the Royal Palace. Winter isn't treating me the best, but I hope that in time I will get used to it. I quite like Spanish food and have learnt quite a bit about the Spanish culture in my short two days here! Anyway, I'll do a longer post about my time in Madrid soon! Rushing to pack for Morocco now, which I've been really looking forward to :)
