Real Madrid – Real Sociedad: first experience

I spent my first weekend in Madrid instead of Salamanca together with other students of Tia Tula, to watch a game of football: Real Madrid – Real Sociedad. Saturday morning we left Salamanca by bus to the stadium ´Santiago Barnabeu´. (+/- 2,5h)

We went by metro to the centre to visit some of Madrid its attractions: Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol after which we went back to the stadium to watch the game. The atmosphere in the stadium was great, filled with all enthusiastic Real Madrid supporters. The game was perfectly selected and run ends in 5-1 win for Real Madrid.

After the game we ate Tapas in the centre, where after we went to our apartment (booked on www.airbnb.com). The metro network and all public transportation are very easy to use, anyhow we covered a lot of the city by feet. Sunday afternoon we left Madrid and went by train back to Salamanca. (+/- 2,5h)

Because of the great public transportation, it is possible to spend the weekends in different cities and places. This gives you the opportunity to discover more of Spain than only Salamanca.
