THE GLASS PALACE

First things first, eat churros con chocolate for breakfast! There are many places churning delicious churros con chocolate all over Madrid, but the oldest and most famous is Chocolatería San Ginés.




The churros here are perfectly fried – crunchy on the outside, soft inside, without any taste of grease. Unlike their Mexican counterparts, these are not rolled in sugar and cinnamon; instead, you drown each bite in the cup of warm chocolate sauce. Pair with an espresso and you’ve got one hell of a sugar and caffeine rush – ready to take on day three of Madrid!






We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, so we ventured to the Royal Botanic Gardens. Since there were no flowers in bloom, we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves!





It was perfect for Avery to run around and play!

We had a quick bite to eat and it was the first time Avery had tiramisu! As you can tell…he was in love!



The Glass Palace (aka Palacio de Cristal) is made almost entirely of glass set in an iron framework and is used today for contemporary art exhibitions. Set in a 130 hectare park and alongside a large lake, there is a wide variety of flora and of over 15,000 trees to discover on a sunny Spanish afternoon.


It’s not very big, but when the light shines through the trees and the glass, this place looks like a dream!
