Madrid Memories

I will miss the smell of bollerias in the morning - croissants, napolitanas and apple tarts. I'll miss hearing dishes clanking for dinner time at 9:30 (at the earliest) through our windows. I'll miss botellon, drinking in the plazas with friends 'til the wee hours... And Gran Via, Cibeles, Plaza Mayor - all those grand things that make you feel tiny, but tiny in a good way, like you have so much more to do and see in this world. I'll miss picnics in the park. I will miss the leisure, the invaluable time I was able to spend reflecting on what's important to me, what my dreams were and are now, and what I'm doing. I'll miss the culture. Work/life balance. The mentality that there's no day busy enough to be forced to skip lunch or even take a 5-minute one. I will miss the friends we have made here. Though we will continue to be friends for ages, the moments we've spent here together could never be recreated. I'll miss being able to walk to everything. I'll miss our tiny first home that David and I have shared together.

Throughout the year, we've posted photos from our travels and visitors, but this album is a collection of some of my favorite memories in Madrid, our day-to-day shenanigans. Please excuse all the food pictures.

  1. Magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, Olalude Abija. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
    I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend Abija for any kind of help you want in life. his email address is:

    Kind Regards,
