Today we are starting the next leg of our trip where Chris and I are backpacking on our own! Today we flew from Santiago to Madrid, and spent 5 hours exploring the beautiful city!
We started at Cibeles Palace and Palace of Linares, continuing to Alcalá Gate, where we entered into Parque del Retiro and enjoyed walking around. We relaxed by the Estanque del Retiro (Retiro pond) with the monument of King Alfonso XII as well as viewing Palacio Cristal. We were also able to see a few other beautiful attractions that the city has and really enjoyed the short amount of time we had. We are now back at the Madrid airport waiting to our flight to Budapest! I will keep posting updates for this portion of the trip.
