Spring Break 2012 | Spain and It's Wonders

The world awaits for more exploration. I set my sights for Spain. I've wanted to head  to the motherland of my motherland (Dominican Republic) for many years now.  With no expectations but a good time with great friends we couldn't go wrong. Although Spain has nearly an infinite amount of attractions ranging from all corners of its land mass we didn't have enough time or money to embark on an extensive trip. We choose Ibiza for the parties, Barcelona for the Art and Architect, and Madrid for...well it the capital.

I'm taking over the world and no can stop me!

On to Barcelona. This city has truly changed my life. Maybe not the city on it's own, but the people I crossed paths. I learned a lot about myself in this city. Ara and I promised ourselves that one day we'd come back to Barcelona to live. Hopefully we can make it happy. In my opinion, this city offers everything anyone would want. There's a beach, diverse industires, architectural beauty, a strong educated population, great food, and greater people. Needless to say I L<3VE Barcelona. 

Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudi

Parc Guell designed by Antoni Gaudi also used as a runway on America's Top Model ^_^

Mosaic Dragon Fountain of Parc Guell

Barcelona vs Getafe...My First Real Soccer Game. It was So AWESOME
"Venga, Venga, BARCA!!!"

Went to Market and found PLANTAINS. You do not understand in Italy (my current home) there is no plantains and for a Domincan Girl this means hell. I was so elated that I found these bad boys that I brought a couple back with me ^_^ yummy yummy. 

Finally made it to Madrid. Home of Bullfights, Tapas, and Friends. This city sure has a lot to see and experience. This was our last stop on our trip and we were ready to explore what the capital had to offer. 
Sangria and Tapas at El Tigre del Morte. The best place in Madrid for tapas and drinks (according to a native friend). We walked in and the place was packed, you were lucky if you have any elbow room, but according to my Spanish friend it was nearly empty O_o. Either way it was a great time and great food, patatas bravas especially. 

Plaza Mayor
Found a Metro Stop with Dominican Republics Capital. Who knew all I needed to do to get home was take a metro in Madrid. 

Palacio Real where Spain's great kings and queens resided
40's Cafe. Spain's, among many other Latin American countries, top 40's radio station has its own restaurant chain. It's similar to a Hard Rock Cafe. Although, this place is famous for its rainbow color burgers (like the ones found in Spongebob Squarepants). 

This market was a great place to hit up before heading to the club. Great food finds and Drinks from around the world.

Amor y Salud de España
