After 2 days of setting an alarm to get up and out in time to catch trains, today was a nice respite of sleeping until we woke up and then having a leisurely breakfast. The teenagers still required multiple prompts to Get. Out. Of. Bed. but I wasn’t losing my mind. So much.
The Reina Sofia, Madrid’s modern art museum, is in Madrid’s first public hospital. The focus is 20 th century Spanish artists but there are others to see. What John loved is that they have curated film to match the art periods! It’s a very cool presentation that presents the art and the time in which it was created.
Picasso’s Guernica is here ❤️ I have been intrigued and enamoured by this work of art since I encountered it on my history text book in high school. That a painting could demonstrate and express the horrors of war on a basic and intricate level at the same time, unbelievable. It is huge IRL. You can not photograph it ☹️ #bucketlist #nailedit
Walking and shopping followed.
A hole in the wall soccer store with a HUGE selection of jerseys. Both boys bought one. Gunnar got new boots for outdoor season. Still not sure how we even saw it, oh wait, we are travelling with teenagers 😂
Beckett likes to mock me because I am so easily distracted while we walk down the street. The buildings are breathtaking, the people wear such awesome shoes, everyone has such cool scarves on, stores have cute stuff, bakeries………
I may have done some shopping ( and found my new favourite store, only in Spain 😝)
