A month after our epic #SistersInSpain trip and I finally have sorted through all our photos and am ready to share my favorites from the vacation. It’s not hard to see why my sister has fallen in love with the country and wants to stay another year. Our trip was such a wonderful time to get to experience her new life in Madrid but also explore some new cities together. I’m splitting the trip up into three posts Madrid, Seville and Southern Spain: Granada, Cadiz, Jerez.
We started and ended our trip in Madrid and with just under three days in Spain’s capital we attempted to make the most of the visit.
Day Three (which was really our last day of the trip because we circled back to Madrid)
This was one of those weekends where I wanted to do nothing but either be submerged in a swimming pool or sit on my couch with the air conditioning blasting. We hit 101 today and it was brutal! But this was one of the first weekends in ages that I didn't have a full agenda and it was kind of wonderful. Summers in St. Louis usually mean festivals and BBQs, boat days and pool parties, so to have a Saturday afternoon where we had nothing to do but lounge and watch movies with a bottle of rosé? Count me in.
Friday night my mom and I went to the pop-up for Sardella, Gerard Craft's new and soon-to-open restaurnt. Full write-up coming soon but it was amazing. On Saturday, my boyfriend and I hit up the Tower Grove farmer's market where I proceeded to buy all the orange tomatoes (my absolute favorite). We followed that with brunch at Rooster and checked out the bottle release at 2nd Shift's new location on the Hill. Super excited these guys are moving to the city. I love their beer and can't wait to have them so close to my apartment. Then we lounged for hours on couch watching Netflix and ended the day with an awesome show from my friend's band The Mighty Pines at The Bootleg. When I write it all out it, it sounds like a busy weekend (plus I painted all day Friday!) but it was that perfect mix of relaxing and fun. Feeling refreshed as we head into the work week and hey, good news is it's cooling down! (If you can considered 90 degrees cool...)
Hope everyone had an equally good weekend! Cheers to a new week!
