Solis in Madrid

After the Camino Jon and I took a shared car to Madrid for 4 days of rest at our friend Felix ‘a house. It was perfect !

Felix has a beautiful apartment in Madrid and made us food, coffee, and reservations for awesome restaurants in town. We had a guided tour of the historic sights, spent hours in the Prada, Spain’s famous art museum, and met up with Felix’s friends for dinner. We also slept in everyday and just rested.

Our last day we even enjoyed a trip to Felix’s childhood boarding school outside of Madrid in the small town of Esstorial. It is housed in a 16th century monastery, Real Colegio de Alfonso XII, and breathtakingly beautiful.

Thank you Felix for your amazing hospitality and friendship. Come visit us in the States!!
