¡ la chi city vegan : back to españa !

yes, it is surprising. i am heading back to spain. (that makes two trips to this lovely country in less than 6 months! olé!)

this time though, i'll be traveling with josh ... and the purpose of the trip is to attend & celebrate at the wedding of my good friend, sara, in madrid ... my favorite city in europe. (although, it's tied with paris. come on.)

sara & me ...
halloween 2008.

sara & i met when i studied abroad in madrid ... me, a chicago girl wanting to practice spanish, & sara, a madrileña looking to practice english. we would meet up every week to do just that.

sara showed me all different kinds of places in madrid ... rose gardens, lesser known (to me) shopping malls, a funicular ... and we always had the best time. so i am so excited to be heading to madrid to celebrate with her & her fiancé, ángel. 

after a few days in madrid, josh & i are headed to tenerife in the canary islands ... for a few days of sand + sun ... and most importantly, a monkey park

i hope to come back with some great info on vegan eating in both places! so stand by!
