22 Apr Exploring Madrid
After a day of jetlag and staying close to the airport, we rode into the busy historical center of Madrid to stay at a private room at a hostel, where Jessica is joining us.
It’s been great to share part of our travel with one of our daughters and we tried to enjoy every moment of it.
We also learned during our stay in Madrid, that it is pretty much impossible to find white gas for our stove. Although we found some outdoor places selling the stoves and bottles, we could not find any place to sell the fuel—go figure! We are sent from sports stores to hardware stores to plumping stores back to outdoor stores throughout our quest. Good thing is we get to see a lot of Madrid while searching for the stuff and as a bonus we learn about 10 different ways of naming white gas in Spanish…unfortunately, it did not help us find any.
Today we say, “see you later” to our daughter again before her flight back home–and it is still not getting any easier. But maybe we’ll get to share some more of our travels with her again in a few months when she returns to England for more work.
