Madrid is blessed with having the occasional square or splodge of green – more than most large European cities. I only arrived here a few weeks ago and I’ve been trying to make the most of being here for the last trickle of  before I freeze my little (eerily white) bum off.

I’m lucky to have an apartment within 1.5km of Madrid’s most famous, most biggest and most excellent Retiro park. The plan is to frequent often,, read, go for runs and socialise. I’ll let you know how that goes for me (already got the eating/reading parts down pat).

The images below are from a picnic in Madrid I had about a year ago with some hostel-type friends. FRIENNNDS.
