After a sad farewell to Liv, the four was reduced to three again and headed to Madrid, a beautifull city with statues, old squares, amazing parks and even greater art, with the worlds best post office:
From Madrid they did a day trip to the medieval walled city; Toledo, home to El Greco and famous for its marzipan made by nuns, which was rather tasty.
After Madrid, they took the train to Granada too see the Alhambra; an Islamic fortress and Palace. It really was quite incredible.
Granada turned out to be a bit of a favourite city amongst our travellers and after wandering around its cobbled streets and tiny market streets they headed out for a night of drinking with free tapas for every drink, yes thats right, Granada´s lovely bars actually give you your choice of free tapas with EVERY drink. This of course turned into a rather massive night of drinking and eating that shall not be forgotten.
From Granada, a very hung over train journey was taken to Seville. Where Charlie and Leon caught a bull fight in supposedly the worlds oldest bull ring (Charlie didn´t get it). Leon also took a trip to Cordoba as he had already been to Seville and Charlie and Woods walked around the city to see the sights including the worlds largest cathedral, a mini version of the Alhambra - the Alcazar and Plaza Espana.
