My roommate and I wanted to visit Toledo and Madrid. In order to make this trip over a weekend we had to board a 6 hour bus at 12am and arrived in Madrid at 6am. We caught a cab, dropped our bags off at the hotel, and then went to the train station to catch a 9am train to Toledo.
After and eventful day walking through the streets of Toledo, we caught a train back to Madrid. While in Toledo I had purchased a knife for my brother, forgetting however, that it was not allowed on the train. As a result, I had my first experience smuggling a knife onto a train in the crotch of my pants.
Upon arrival in Madrid we officially check into our hotel and crashed for a couple of hours before going out to experience the nightlife. The next day we got up early and purchased a bus tour to take us around Madrid before catching a train back to Sevilla. Madrid is a beautiful city.
