Mini Vacations! Toledo and Madrid :) – Elise

This weekend my friends and I went to Madrid and Toledo to do all sorts of wonderful tourist things.  First we took the bus from Córdoba to Madrid and arrived at 7 in the morning on Friday.  The first thing we did was find our friend´s apartment and sleep all morning.  Then, that afternoon we went to see the Royal Palace, la Puerta de Sol and Calle Gran Via.  We had dinner at a very cute restaurant that is very popular among students in Madrid, however, it had a really surprising food on the menu…kangaroo hamburgers!  We all ordered them and learned that kangaroo tastes just like beef!

The next morning we woke up “early” and took the Ave high speed train to Toledo.  We arrived at 11am and had a relaxing late breakfast in the Plaza Zocalo and then decided to check out the Alcázar and the military museum.  We went up one of the towers and there was an amazing view of the city.  We took a short break from all the walking and sat down for a drink in a cute little plaza.  After that long rest we managed to find the energy to walk to another restaurant to eat a delicious lunch and drink some coffee.  To finish our day trip we walked around the Judería, took photos at a bridge with a great view and visited the Cathedral and the Synagogue.  If you’ve never been to Toledo I definitely giving it a try!
