Well the day started promising enough. I heard the alarm go at 5:30 and got right up and in the shower. The boys didn’t require 15 wake up prompts! There was a little bit of food left for breakfast to tide us over until we got to the airport. The taxi app we used to get a taxi to pick us up at our apartment worked like a charm ( if you could see the crazy, convoluted, tiny warren of streets we navigated you’d share my amazement!)
There is little to no traffic on Madrid streets at 7 am so we made it to the airport in record time 👍🏻 it was a bit disconcerting that at 7:20 am there were next to no security staff on but they all hustled out to man their X-ray machines quick enough.
I wasn’t chosen for extra screening! 🎉
And I looked at the time. And the announcements started. Followed by the dreaded “gather all your belongings”
That’s the kiss of death.
It was almost 4 before we got here.
Then we went out to explore around the hotel. There’s a lovely park next door.
Then early to bed to start it all again tomorrow.
