Rainy Street in Madrid

I didn't take many photos of the weekend I spent in Madrid, but this was my favourite. I also liked how the black and white edit came out when I was messing around with the photo on Instagram. Couldn't decide which I preferred so here, have both 😉

Best Places to Wine and Dine in Burgos

Perhaps one day you will find yourself in the cold, northern Spanish city of Burgos.
