It was almost time to say "Adios!" to Spain.  On our last day we left Barcelona, and boarded the high speed train back to Madrid.

We checked back into the same hotel in Madrid where we stayed before we left for Barcelona- Petit Palace Hotel Lealtad Plaza.  We decided to do this so that we could leave some of our belongings while we went to Barcelona, and also because it would make for an easy check in and out on our last night.  Funny thing too, we even got the same room we had during our first few nights stay, and we were so happy about that!  I mean, for European hotel room standards, this place was HUGE!!!  It was perfect for the four of us and ALL of our luggage! ;-)  I really can't say enough good things about this hotel.  If you are traveling to Madrid (especially with kids), and have to stay on a budget- I would recommend staying here.  It was clean, spacious, the service was very friendly, it's centrally located to all of the things to do and see, and the breakfasts were delicious with a lot of variety!

We spent the afternoon strolling through the absolutely gorgeous El Retiro Park which is right across the street from the hotel.  We had lunch, played in the playgrounds, went out for a canoe ride, and shared some ice cream.  It was so much fun, and the perfect way to spend our last night in Espana!

Thanks for reading about our trip!
