King of Spain-redux

By on September 19, 2016

Ive been having some issues with my blog.  I fixed them.  Sorry for the double emails. 

There is a palace here in Madrid where the King of Spain used to live. For 2 days, the Moxy Fruvous song was stuck in my head. Please listen to it here: King of Spain song(if you know your ’90s music, you might recognize Jian Gomeshi in this video)

I really hope this song has been stuck in your head now. “Once I was the King of Spain, now I eat humble pie…..”

We joined up with our tour group in Madrid. Quite a mixed bag of folks. Our tour leader is Carlos who is not from Spain but has a Spanish name and an Australian accent.

Dinner last night was a big group occasion which included unlimited sangria and nonstop food. It was wonderful.

We ate and drank more than our share.  Probably not a good way to start a trip.

Toms Birthday today

I was a smidge worried what we might do today, but he wanted to do what I want! So Hemingway haunts and some shopping. We only posed for the picture of the Real Palace above! We didn’t even go in!! How did I get so lucky?

Yes, on toms birthday I got new shoes.  Not pictured-my new purse.

We meandered around Madrid until it was time to get on our train to Barcelona.

Here is one more pic of the birthday boy doing what he likes.

Madrid is known for their strawberry trees and their bears apparently.  Get it- strawbearies.  So funny.

    Happy Birthday to Tom! Hope he gets to buy something too. Sounds like a fun day though. I’m sure it’ll be fun hanging out with a group for awhile, especially if they are fun people like you guys.

    Happy Birthday, Tom! I love that for your present Kerri got new shoes and a purse.

    Years ago when we arrived in Barcelona by train in the hot, hot summer, we headed straight for a bar. There, on the counter, was a basket of tempting apples. I bit into one, and a worm crawled out.
