      Dinner with my better half

      by Martin_S. Online Now Nov 24, 2015 at 4:45 AM

      Shalom, Shalom:
      My wife, Zohara, and I plan to visit Madrid either before or after the VT Euromeet in May 2016.
      I would like to surprise her with a nice dinner hopefully at a place with a view over the city.
      Any suggestions.
      (and yes I have been going over VT pages on Madrid and so far found nothing suitable :o)))
      Thanks for any help.

      Where should we spend more time: In Madrid or the outskirts?

      While I love exploring cities, I sometimes feel that the hidden gems are on the outskirts. Can anyone suggest places to visit around Barcelona, Seville & Madrid respectively?

      Couple travelling to Madrid in early November, and would like to know what area is best to base ourselves that is not of the beaten track so we can enjoy what the city has to offer. We do enjoy the indie,goth,punk type music bar scene vibe. Areas that are not too expensive. Cheapest areas to drink an eat would be a bonus also. We will be attending a gig whie we are there in Joy eslava, any reviews also on this place as I hear it can be expensive? Thanks

      We only have 45 mins between our flight landing and the bus leaving to Salamanca. Is this feasible? If we miss the bus what are our alternatives for getting to Salamanca that same day? Can we get on the next bus even if we haven't booked tickets for it? Or are there other alternatives? Basically we need a plan B if we can't make the bus. Many thanks for any advice.

      anyone have any advice as to which neighbourhood in Spain I should stay in? I like smaller hotels, old areas of towns with narrow streets and small bars and taverns. Is it possible to find such an area which is also fairly easy to get to from the airport and is also close to public transport for getting around. Many thanks
