People went to Madrid for different reasons- Tapas, Wine, Museum, Bull Fight, Flamingo, Soccer Game…..or Fashion! I hope my pictures can show you all…..esp the Fashion Part:)
Mayor Square through my Sigma Wide Angle Lens🙂
I suggest you all go to S. Miguel Market for Tapas and Wine-There’s so many different variety of food and drinks for you to try:) I myself have tried Oyster, Yogurt Shots, Sangria,etc,etc……:)
There’s so many Free Walking Tours around Madrid so do check that out:)
In my How to Travel Safely as a Solo Female Traveler post, so many people have asked me how did I meet up with people while traveling. Well, people will just come to you, trust me. During the tour, I met this sweet Girl that came from Chile and we went to lunch after the tour:)
Afterward, I have to leave her because she want to go to check out some museums and I have to concentrate on my Mission-Travel for Fashion. If I follow people to do whatever they want to go, my blog will become travel for Museum or travel for fun:P For me, it’s really a choice of whether you want to achieve a goal, or just to have fun! I like being alone, it make be focus on the things I want to do:))
I knew she’s sad that I have to leave her but I have no choice but to head to the shopping district in Madrid-Gravia:)
It’s kind of chilly in Madrid these 2 days so every girls are wearing Boots!!!…VERY COOL:)
It was a fun experience to check out the fashion stores in Madrid-
Inside H&M Store
Leather jackets and Boots are selling in EVERY STORES, even Zara:)
And I did went to see Real Madrid—They are super awesome. The game against Millonarios(Colombia) was 8-0!! Crazy.
When you travel alone, there’s just too many crazy things happened around you and being a solo female traveler, you really need to be mature and careful! You might say everyone learn from their mistake, but it’s really best to avoid having made those mistake!! So, yesterday, I went for Tapas and Wine with bunch of people including these American Girl from Chicago! She kept saying she’s young and wanted to have fun! At the end, she got so drunk and dared everyone she could do a Backflip while she’s drunk! What she paid for was her FRONT TOOTH AND A DEEP CUT OF HER UPPER LIPS!!. She bumped her head to the street while doing the backflip and needed to went to the hospital!!. She got 7 stitches,a swollen faces and lost her front teeth!! So, my Additional Advise to travel safely as a Solo Female traveler is-be a responsible drinker and do get sober ALL TIME WHILE YOU ARE TRAVELING! Drinking can be fun but it can turned int to a disaster if you over do it! Traveling helped me grow up and learned to be a responsible person:)
One more funny thing-my flight from NYC to Madrid, a model sit right next to me…AGAIN!!! This is the third time a model sitting right next to me! This is also another fun part to travel alone because you never know who is going to sit right next to you. I have had an Ambassador from Ecuador sitting right next to me before who said whenever I go visit his country, he can show me around with his limo! And this time, this guy told me he can get me to some fashion shows later in Paris/Milan and will share my Page on his FAN page!! So tell me, will all these change your point of view of traveling alone??
I will go to a Flamingo show tonight and will post more photos later:) Cheers everyone.
