The Royal Palace
Saturday 8 September 2012 - Saturday 8 September 2012
Our first impression of Madrid was that it was like a bigger version of Valencia. This city is very pretty. We ended up driving around Madrid a lot, but when it came to actually getting out and seeing something, we only did this for the Royal Palace.
Here are some pictures of the city:
Here is the palace:
We really enjoyed our time in Madrid, and at the palace. It's a very beautiful building, full of a lot of history.
After seeing Madrid, we started our journey to Biarritz. We went the scenic route, and saw all sorts of cute little towns. There was one that looked like it came straight from the middle ages, unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of it, but it was very close to a town called Sanguesa.
Driving through the Pyrenees was amazing. The drive is so beautiful, but I did start getting scared to get into France. I had always heard that French people didn't like it when you don't speak French. I started to panic a little about how we were going to survive without knowing any of the language.
