On my first night in Madrid, I went on the Spanish Inquisition Tour by Sandemans. What can I say? I am a sucker for walking tours. This is a daily tour available at 19h00 from Plaza Mayor.

Please note that although it is advertised in the “free tour” pamphlet, this is NOT a free tour. This tour has a flat rate.

Free exhibitions, free wifi, free work desks, tons of comfy couches, panoramic city view…

Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, gem of Lyon! This is a MUST DO for all foodies and fellow #caloriesdontcare members. Thinking about this place gives me goose bumps, such fond memories.
