I’m currently on a trip around Europe and in between the site seeing and airport transfers, trying to keep a little record of my travels – who I meet, what I see, etc. etc. I have taken loads of photos but I know everything will merge into one gigantic city experience by the time I get them developed and so thought I could write down my impressions to make it all a little more coherent. So here goes… So far I’ve been from London, through Paris and Montpellier (where I met a great group of American people learning French) and now am in Madrid. Anymore and I am going to begin to forget it all and so it is here I choose as my starting place to write. The city is BIG. Everything. I love it but to be honest, am looking forward to the relative tranquillity of my next stop in Salamanca. I’m staying in one of the hostels Madrid and like in Montpellier, it is something which has made the stop over special – a great chance for meeting people! There are a lot of Spanish in the city who have come for various events (being the capital, it has so much to offer in terms of music and entertainment) but the majority have a decent level of English from school or a language course abroad (in the bed next to me, there’s a girl who’s just finished one of the “ Nueva York” and speaks English better than I do! But it’s not all Spanish people – like any other capital city, Madrid is very cosmopolitan. There’s a young group of Italian students who are so much fun – we’ve taken it upon ourselves to see as much of the Madrid nightlife as possible in the next few days (Club Low is our favourite so far) and a French guy here to prepare for a “Sejour linguistique en Bolivia“. He talks of nothing but South America, I would love to be able to extend my travels and go to visit him once he’s settled – if it is half as good as he describes, I’ll have a ball! After Spain (of which I still have to see Salamanca, Barcelona and the beaches of Cadiz), it’s up to Berlin and from there, Holland. I am reasonably flexible though and so if anyone has any tips (I am interested in Euro cities with plenty to do), then please let me know!

No tips or suggestions, just a comment that I'm very jealous and I wish you the best on your adventure.

Frank (We'll be visiting Italy and Ireland in the Fall!)
