  • Welcome to Madrid

  • It's day 5, 6:30am in the morning

  • in Barcelona

  • and we are walking to the station

  • cause we need to catch the train

  • back to Catalunya

  • where we have to catch an Aerobus

  • to the airport

  • and then we're gonna head on to Madrid.

  • I just wanted to show you the street

  • it is so quiet here right now!

  • Jenny was just commenting on these tiles on the floor,

  • they make your luggage so loud!

  • From Barcelona to Madrid,

  • it is only 1 hour 20 minutes by flight.

  • We are in Madrid!

  • Woot!

  • It's so easy to get around Madrid,

  • the airport even has it's own Metro station.

  • For our stay in Madrid,

  • we chose to stay in another Airbnb apartment.

  • The apartment was so clean

  • and had everything we needed for our stay.

  • It was also in a really convenient location,

  • within walking distance to Plaza Mayor.

  • We even had 3 balconies,

  • which provided different viewpoints over the city.

  • *cackle*

  • *laughing*

  • Walked right past the lift...

  • It was about a 10 minute walk

  • from our apartment to Plaza Mayor.

  • Nearby we found this amazing local takeaway store.

  • Look at this guy,

  • squatting here on the street with his goodies.

  • A: Oh my god! W: What is it?

  • Calamari!

  • So, it's so simple

  • calamari on a bread roll.

  • I already had one of the calamari pieces,

  • they're so busy,

  • it's cooked fresh all the time.

  • You can see if you go to the window

  • there's like 3 big deep-fryers

  • just full of calamari

  • and the guy just packs 'em in.

  • So cheap!

  • 2.70 euro.

  • What did you get?

  • A lollipop!

  • and what's this?

  • I don't know, something that looks yummy!

  • Yummy, yummy!

  • Is it like potatoes or something like that?

  • Not sure, it looks like potatoes.

  • But...I'm not sure...

  • J: Potato Potato W: Eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it, let us know!

  • It's hot!

  • Is it spicy?

  • I don't know.

  • Looks spicy!

  • It is potato.

  • It is just potato? Oh!

  • As this was our first time in Madrid

  • we decided to join a free walking tour.

  • Our guide took us through some of the back streets of Madrid

  • and told us a lot about the history of the city.

  • However...

  • we felt a bit like she was reading out of a textbook,

  • so we ended up leaving halfway.

  • That's the thing with free walking tours,

  • you pay what you think it's worth,

  • and do not feel obligated to stay for the entire thing.

  • Armed with a map, we went to explore the city on our own.

  • We ended up here,

  • at the Sabatini gardens,

  • Which has a beautifully landscaped,

  • maze-like garden

  • Now, we're just making our way to the market,

  • where we will have some food.

  • *puff* It's a bit of an uphill walk...

  • Look at this one, swinging past!

  • making it seem like it's nothing...

  • ...and here I am, puffing out!

  • Here we are at Mercado de San Miguel,

  • one of the most popular markets among tourists in Madrid.

  • This market is not your traditional grocery market...

  • ...instead, it is a gourmet tapas market.

  • mmm....so many choices!

  • Look! It's the Museum of Jamon!

  • Jamon is the Spanish word for ham,

  • and Spain is especially famous

  • for it's Serrano and Iberico hams.

  • Did you know?

  • Eating ham became a huge part of the Spanish culture

  • during the Spanish Inquisition,

  • when families would hang

  • huge legs of ham outside their house

  • to symbolize that they were Christian,

  • as Jews and Moors did not eat pork.

  • Leaving the dark history behind,

  • you will find that jamon is now a huge part of Spanish cuisine.

  • One can not come to Spain, without eating some jamon!

  • Look at all the goodness!

  • Look at all that goodness!

  • So, at the moment, we're at the museum,

  • but not any museum!

  • the best museum in the world, people!

  • That's right!

  • It's a meat museum!

  • W: Ham museum...

  • W: Jamon!

  • Sorry, it's a jamon museum.

  • They have a great deal here at the moment.

  • You get this,

  • well...

  • ...ok, well, I'm trying to get the beer that's half drunk.

  • This one has a little bit more liquid in it...

  • ...and you get that

  • and it's only 3.90 euro!

  • I'm so happy!

  • It's really tasty!

  • This is "homeless Jenny".

  • She's been homeless for a whole 5 minutes!

  • Welcome

  • to lollies!

  • lots and lots of lollies!

  • Woaaaah!

  • Woaaaah!

  • W: Hello Kitty! It's Hello Kitty!

  • We are at 100 Montaditos.

  • Everything here is 1 euro,

  • well, most things.

  • Olives!

  • Yum!

  • What's this one?

  • Pork jaw, but it's actually Pork cheek...

  • ok

  • ...in red wine.

  • W: Yum! A: So, it's like pulled pork!

  • W: and it comes with a side of chips.

  • A: comes with a bit of chips,

  • W: and that was 1 euro?

  • A: 1 euro! plus this 1 euro!

  • so 2 euros

  • plus this 1 euro

  • plus this 1.50 euros

  • So, this...

  • was more expensive

  • than a beer!

  • A: Unbelievable! W: But, it's peach juice! and it's good peach juice.

  • So, we were lost for ages and we wandered into this hotel to get some directions...

  • A: You should of filmed the actual guy!

  • J: We ran into Sergio Fernando Gonzales! A: Gonzales!

  • W: he was...

  • an amazing person,

  • he gave us so many tips

  • and pointers, he wrote down all these different places to eat

  • for us so we don't have to wander around all lost.

  • A: Amazing! so we're gonna have, what are we gonna eat?

  • We're going to eat some...snails...

  • W: We're going to eat... A: Why are you filming the street?

  • So we're gonna eat snails,

  • we're also going to eat some...

  • sardines

  • grilled sardines!

  • and he recommended a few omellette places...

  • that were really good.

  • And, also, we found out you can get a suckling pig

  • oh yeh, that!

  • but the only place that has it is...

  • over 50 euros!

  • J: too pricey! W: and we're not really here for long enough

  • but, we will be back in Madrid,

  • and we will have that one day!

  • J: Thank you Sergio!

  • Did we ever tell you that we love collecting toys and figures?

  • Gracias!

  • So we got some snails!

  • W: and then we got some bread as well A: Oh, you gotta have some of this, it's really refreshing!

  • What's that you got?

  • so that's exactly the drink I was saying!

  • it's a red wine with soda

  • W: Verano....Tinto? (Tinto de Verano) A: Yes, that's exactly it!

  • but it's slighty different, every place does it different,

  • because they use a different base for the red wine...

  • and then it's just Lemonade

  • Alright, so we're here...

  • Snails!

  • Beautiful! So you gotta grab a snail,

  • Just stab it!

  • just pull it out slowly

  • this one's a little one...

  • mmm...

  • really nice chewy texture,

  • and of course it's been soaked in that stew pot,

  • for so long, that it's so flavoursome!

  • you can see there's a little bit of soup/stew in there?

  • that's really good!

  • Oh! That's! That's fantastic!

  • and don't forget you got to dip it with some bread...

  • Yep, so you got some bread here to soak up the stew from the sides.

  • but, we'll do that at the end.

  • It's Lamb Intestines!

  • W: deep fried? A: Yep, it's fried Lamb Intestines.

  • Look at this!

  • it's fried Lamb Intestines!

  • So weird!

  • Look at the texture on it.

  • Lamb Intestine!

  • Fried!

  • Very crunchy!

  • Yeh, it's really crunchy.

  • it tastes like... slightly like crackling...

  • A: Like what?

  • W: Slightly like crackling... A: Crackling!

  • and it's bitter...

  • Put some lemon and salt on it.

  • You put lemon and salt on it, right?

  • Lemon and salt makes it easier to eat...

  • I can imagine if it didn't have lemon and salt,

  • it would just be bitter.

  • But, with the lemon and salt it tastes quite nice.

  • it slightly reminds me of liver,

  • but not soft,

  • instead it's crunchy!

  • W: It's really weird. A: because it's fried.

  • Cause you never have fried liver.

  • That's something you would never fry.

  • Jenny?

  • Thoughts?

  • Yeh, so it tastes like liver. I like liver!

  • So it's just like cooked liver!

  • Liver chips!

  • *giggle* yeh deep fried liver...
