Do you remember, way back in September, we ran an awesome +1 competition on our Google Plus page? We offered you a unique opportunity to win a €500 travel voucher and all you had to do was tell us who your +1 was. Many, maaany of you did, but as with most competitions, there could only be one winner. The lucky one was Melda Eren. Melda and her +1 went to visit a place that had been on their travel list for a long time – Madrid. You can read all about her Spanish adventures right here.
Travelling to Madrid has been on our list for a long time. Especially, since I have never been to Spain before. The trip was planned and the flight was booked when we came across the Easytobook competition. Thanks to Easytobook our five days in Madrid were a lot fancier than expected…
Remember those fantastic time-lapse vids we posted? Maaan…what an an effective way to capture the ambience of a city.
Last time we had an inspiring look at some major cities including Paris, Rome, Berlin and Tokyo. This time we show you some more great images from the waterways of Venice, Barcelona’s Parc Guell, and stunning sights Down Under.
Grab yourself a Fair Trade coffee, slip your headphones on and slide out of Pomodoro mode for a few minutes to enjoy these impressive creations. We hope you like them as much as we do.
Spain’s capital is naturally one of the country’s most expensive cities. It doesn’t take a great deal of imagination to expect that you can easily spend a fortune here if you’re not careful. That said, the best things in life are still free, right?
While it’s true that Madrid can’t offer as many free museums as London can, there are still plenty of tasty attractions that can help to spare your pockets….if you know where to look for them.
Brussels’ Grand Place, Amsterdam’s de Dam, Derby’s Osnabrück Square…our world was, at one point, built around these public spaces. We traded, we gossiped, we rallied, we celebrated. Nowadays we pop into Uncle Tom’s Cabin for a sausage and egg buttie whilst we watch the tourists feed the pigeons and pose for photos.
Many squares remain fascinating and exhilarating places to spend a few hours, and Madrid is one of the best cities to throw yourself into the square culture. There are loads of them – large and small – scattered across the city. Personally, I’m far from an expert on the subject, so I’m going to team up with a Madrid native. Francisco, our Account Manager for Spanish destinations, once gave us all a wonderful view of Dublin off the beaten track. He’s back to share his tips on his home city, and my-my, isn’t he an abyss of enthralling information about it.
This contest is now closed; please stay tuned for other info and contests!
August is over, and for our latest contest: Win a 2 nights stay in Madrid with 1 ‘like’, it is time to announce the winner:
Congratulations Lena Stein!
Lena, we will contact you soon to inform you about all the details.
Now let’s get back to business, especially for all of you that are not as lucky as Lena this time… No biggie, we have yet another awesome contest for you! First of all, as always, let’s talk about the prize. For the next winner we have a voucher for a 2 nights stay in a 4 star hotel in Barcelona, in the Hotel Diagonal Zero!
Just sleeping 2 nights in a 4 star hotel in Barcelona could be enough, but thanks to the Diagonal Zero we are able to offer you a prize that you will never forget!
However, as usual, we first have to announce the winner of the previous competition. From all of our listed destinations we chose Paris as the city in which to offer the main prize (a 2-night stay for 2 persons) and we then picked Fayzrul as the winner, so congratulations to Fayzrul!
Now let’s move to our new contest; ready, set, go!
We already told you the prize will be a 2 night stay in Madrid…but where?
In the middle of the city, between Puerta del Sol and the Gran Via, within easy walking distance of Plaza Mayor, Plaza de Cibeles and the Museo del Prado, in one of our favorite hotels: the Praktik Metropol Madrid!
How can you win this prize?
