Hola Madrid ; art , history and parks

Yeah at last my first visit to a foreign country! A great start:)) MADR?D

I began to learn Spanish in INSTITUTO CERVANTES ESTAMBUL therefore I'm interested in Spanish culture and cities of course.When I heard that on December there would be tours to Spain that low-priced I chose Madrid tour and made it a reality:)

When I first enter the city and see the people I said to meyself ''Oh, they 're so much look like Turkish people.'' And when we were wandering around the city, I didn't feel like I'm a stranger.Maybe the streets were more tidy than Istanbul's but the feeling of being in a city that fulled with history, liveliness, warmth and energy was the same.

My little journey was beginning with a beautiful sun and sky , Don Quixote was saying ''Bienvenida'' so what can I want more!!

      Yeah,Madrid was really a good start.Actually,the monuments usually don't captivate me so much but as I start my journey from here and also feel the warm wellcome of Don Quixote,can't forget it.Saludos deste Istanbul:)

    Your photos are really excellent! Enjoyed them so much. Spain is the next travel destination I have in mind. I love tapas, and have visited ones other places which some say are "authentic" but would really like to try them where they came from....
