Our beautiful sunset

Our last night in Ibiza we decided to go to Cafe del Mar, a hot spot in Ibiza and recommended by my friend Michael Anthony.

At Cafe del Mar, we experienced the most emotional [yes, we’re sissies] sunset ever. We got lucky and were able to sit on a table right at the edge of the pier with nothing but rocks, water, and a beautiful sunset. We ordered a jarra of sangria, and relaxed! We had the opportunity to finally sit and reflect about our trip … in the background, we were listening to Cafe del Mar’s resident deejay Valentin Huedo’s mix of latin house lounge beats [one of my favorite genres].

Jamon in Madrid

Landing in Barajas and taking money out of the Banco Popular ATM, I fondly remembered my time in Madrid back in 2003.  We got on the metro with the familiar voice that states “proxima estacion – sol, correspondencia con linea __ y __.”  We got off at Plaza de Espana and located our hostel just a few meters away.  Too bad it was 7:30 am…so we had to drop off our bags in the kitchen and not return until check-in at 2 pm.  So we decided to be tourists for the day, walking around the Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, Sol, and Principe Pio.
