What a Park!

Buen Retiro Park is such a wonderful and decorative green lung in the centre of Madrid. It is huge, with so many fanciful features. You can spend several hours. It is basically one of the best city parks I have come across. I just love the expression made up by sculptures, statues, follies, gardens, lakes, ponds and more, spread throughout the place. And if you’re more into not just looking at beautiful structures, there’s  exhibitions, entertainment options for both children and adults, street artists, and, the very popular, rowing boats for hire. The latter I wanted to do, but didn’t get quite comfortable with the idea of me by myself in a small boat on the lake. One of the few times I’ve missed a travel buddy 🙂
