The rooftop bar at the hotel were we stayed last week. Madrid was a pleasant experience. A beautiful city that sometimes are overshadowed by Barcelona but it is truly an underrated gem ⭐️
We’ve been home in Sweden for a short visit after almost two years of isolation & are now traveling a couple of weeks in Germany before we return home again. We’ve made many visits to various museums. Partly for the art, partly for the architecture (many museum buildings are fantastic) but also for the great silence when you slowly walk around looking & taking in the works. It’s a very calm & soothing environment.
The Rhine has had & still has enormous significance for trade in the countries concerned. Also a great strategic importance, as many castles & forts along the river testify. Today it was just beautiful in itself & the recurring bridges link the different areas with the city as the center. A beautiful place to walk along.
