When you need to escape for the big city. When you feel like going for a peaceful walk. An afternoon away from the hustle and bustle of the crowd. Quietly strolling through a park…
Spring, Spring… Itâ€™s made us wait a long time this year. It’s delayed by a good month or so, but is finally here (in Poland). I don’t know why, but upon the coming of spring, my thoughts always turn to AlcalĂˇ de Henares and so today, we’re escaping from the city, but we are not going too far!
A half an hour drive away to the north of Madrid is where aÂ differentÂ world begins.
I remember my first month in Madrid, one spent in a hotel and when I was essentially involuntarily unemployed without access to my PC. The hotel’s internet connection left a lot to be desired, and so I spent lots of my time out in the field. It wasn’t quite the season for sitting down in the park with a good book and so I found myself wandering around the city, trying to get to know it (take a look at some of my earlier blog entries).
This time, a few photos from around Madrid – views of the Sierra de Guadarrama captured during the search to find locations for couples’ photo shoots.
Living in a large city, even in the suburbs, means that sometimes you just want to escape. As you’ve seen, I’m not a big city girl, as when the weekend comes along, I feel like going out and breathing some fresh air.
This is one of my favourite places close to Madrid. Itâ€™s a charming town, quite different to the ones I’ve seen to-date.
