We were lucky enough to actually be in Madrid for the World Cup semi-finals, so we went to a nearby bar to watch Spain beat Germany. Of course, Madrid went crazy. We walked by Puerta del Sol, which was packed with people – even in the fountain and on top of the metro entrance.
And Daniela made another new friend:
Then we went barhopping – I really wanted to have a fun, crazy Madrid night! We got about five free drinks at various bars near the hotel, but every spot was still pretty much empty since it was barely midnight.
Lesson learned: Madrid is notorious for its all-night partying ways, so don’t be surprised that things don’t really get popping until after midnight.
We ended up calling it a night pretty early and being totally lame!
