11:23 PM- Madrid, Spain: Hotel Gaudi room 125
Our last day in Spain
Today was our last day in Spain. I’m terribly sad and also incredibly excited to leave and share this trip with everyone. It’s a bittersweet intersection, the last day of a journey.
It’s getting late and we have a 7:30 AM wake-up call. I’m very tired and I will have to postpone writing about today’s events until I have more free time on the plane ride home. For now, a quick list of the day’s events do I do not forget:
Wake-up 7:45 AM
Yummy breakfast 8:45 AM
Local tour guide meets us at hotel
Bus tour 9:45 AM
Pictures with the statue of Don Quixote and his horse
Bus to Royal Palace

It was a pretty fabulous day for a self-guided last day of Madrid (and Spain altogether).

Okay, tired,
