Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Around Madrid

Such a bright reminder to post letters.

When visiting a city for the first time I like nothing better than wandering around the streets to get a feel for the city and the people. Madrid was no exception. Here are one or two things that caught my eye.

I could have listened to this guitarist all day. The setting and music were beautiful.

Paella ready for the lunch time rush

Anyone for a hat?


  1. Hi there - I have to say it makes my feet itchy to see these kinds of things again - maybe a feel a long plane flight coming on!

    Nice set of pictures.

  2. Looks like you're enjoying yourself. Wish I could be there with you, I've always wanted to go to Spain! :-)

  3. Looks like a beautiful place. I have never been to Spain --but have a cousin living there... MAYBE someday--I'll get there...????

    In the meantime, I'll enjoy your photos... I've never seen a mailbox like that one.. Neat!!!!! That food looks delicious.

    P.S. Please take out that horrible word verification. It's SO hard to read. Thanks!

  4. belle promenade en photo, j'aime bien la photo du musicien

  5. Looks like you had a lovely visit! Fantastic!

    I'm sorry it took me so long to return your visit to my blog... had a bit of a busy Spring and am just getting back into Blogging and visiting other blogs! I'm bookmarking yours so I can come back another day (time to fix supper now!). Looks like you've got plenty of interesting posts for me to discover! :o)
