I spent most of last week in #Madrid attending a gastronomy conference at the invitation of @spain tourism.
It was my second trip to the Spanish capital so instead of visiting the usual touristy spots, I signed up for a walking tour with @withlocals. My guide Lucas and I spent a happy afternoon traipsing through the gay neighbourhood of Chueca & the hipster hood of Malasaña - checking out street art, markets, vintage boutiques, and bars. My favourite bit was this charming bookstore that's presided over by a cat! No really, swipe to see her majesty's regal persona #catsofinstagram
Fun fact - see the book upfront 'Besa y Escribe', it translates to 'Kiss & Read'. And the line below says, 'Make use of your tongue'. Love it!
