Madrid Adventure: A Walk About Town

Another paid holiday means another adventure for the Stolls - this time to the beautiful city of Madrid in Spain. Even nicer was that our flights and hotel were my award for Employee of the Year in 2014. We stayed at the gorgeous Villa Magna Hotel and had a nice walk about town on our first afternoon. A few photos for you to enjoy.
The lobby of the Villa Magna Hotel. It was really nice - we felt under-dressed most of the trip.
A beautiful old church in the middle of a busy shopping street. Brian was across the street waiting to get a SIM card and I wandered over to have a look.
We were lured by Trip Advisor to have lunch at this "quaint, authentic Spanish eatery". It turned out to be a wildly overpriced tourist trap with mediocre food. Ah well, it's all part of the adventure, right?
The architecture was amazing - you'll see more in my future posts.
Another street view. They had these bikes for rent in many areas of the city. We were impressed with how clean the city was and how safe it felt to walk around - even in the evenings after dark.
