We flew into Madrid and spent two days there before heading off to Valladolid. It was the first time I'd been to either city and there were plenty of new and inspiring things to see. Here are just a few....
Vivid flowers, stunning tulips and interesting shapes of trees and leaves at the Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid
Museo Reina Sofia. There were some great exhibitions, including Picasso's Guernica and a collection by Dali.
It was Semana Santa (Holy Week), so we saw a great selection of processions from the cathedral and churches. Each procession has it's own band so the streets are filled with the colours and sounds!
And of course, it would have been rude not to sample the wide selection of tapas, wine, beer, gin..... Does that count as inspiration?!
I had a fantastic trip and can't wait to visit again! I collected some bits and pieces like tickets, maps, postcards etc and would like to scrapbook them somehow. I've not done scrapbooking before, so would love to hear any tips and hints please! How do you capture and record memories and mementos from your holidays?
