Museos, Restaurantes and More: My Madrid Bucket List

September 12, 2016

¿Que Pasa?


I have been making lists of everything that I want to do while I am here in Madrid, so I decided I would share it here and update it as I cross things off!


One of the big things that's on my list is to visit as many (free) museums in Madrid as possible during these next four months. Luckily, I found this handy website that lists all of the museums in Madrid that have free entry! I've already even hit up a few on the list in between classes.


I'm sure I'll be posting the deets on each thing once I visit, so stay tuned!
