Lit Bit: Real Travel Adventures Goes to Madrid

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on February 27, 2013 0 Comments

Does the rain and snow (depending on where you are) have you wishing for sunnier weather? Pour yourself a snifter of Spanish brandy, prepare a bit of tapas, and come with me to Madrid!

Real Travel Adventures is an online travel magazine that draws the eyes of half a million unique visitors each year. The current issue features my travel story, called “Spanish Holiday: Part 2, Madrid.”

I’ll admit that the published story has been cut down to size, and much of the detail and experience has been omitted or altered—rendering some reference confusing or unexplained. But the story will give you a glimpse of Madrid’s beauty, along with its darker side.

So warm that chill with me in Madrid at Real Travel Adventures International Magazine!
