Speed walk around Madrid City and flight home

Sadly my travels have come to an end :(

Flying home today & only have a couple of hours to see a bit more of Madrid before leaving. Had my free brekky in the hostel and headed out to walk a big loop and see as much as I can on foot I left at 9am and was back by 10.15 am and walked by the below places.

Plaza de Colon

Plaza de la Independencia

Plaza de Cibeles- stunning building with stone chariot in road in front

Puerto de sol

Archway into Plaza Mayor

Madrid is full of elegant buildings and large plazas and statues and wide streets with trees.

Back at the hostel I grabbed my backpack & checked out and headed to the airport on the underground.

I checked out at 10. 20 and caught 2 trains to terminal 1 at the airport arriving at 11am.

Paid 7 e to have my bag plastic wrapped
