Palacio Real


Confession: I love playing tourist here in Madrid. Although I've been here for exactly one month now, there are still so many sights I want to see, restaurants I want to try and places I want to explore. My Madrid Bucket List is growing longer by the day. 

Because Madrid is such a large city, it's impossible to run out of things to do. This, among many other things, is definitely one of my favorite parts about living here. Last weekend I finally tackled one of the top sights on my long list of must-sees... the Royal Palace!


I came to this palace three years ago when I visited Madrid with my mom, but I honestly didn't remember what it looked like inside. I'm so glad I visited Madrid's Royal Palace again, because seeing it for a second time was worth every Euro. Every room is extravagant and exudes luxurious grandeur. I wish I were a princess so I could attend banquets and dine beneath stunning crystal chandeliers, lounge in the resplendent throne room, and then play pool with King Juan Carlos I because he seems like a pretty cool guy.


It absolutely killed me that I couldn't take photos inside, because this place is truly incredible. Its lavishly ornate details rival Versailles', and its splendor is breathtaking. I guess you could convince me to live here.
