TEAM MADRID TAPAS TRAIL TOUR
Arriving to Spain from Ireland in 2001, with a one-way ticket and a 30-kilo suitcase, I landed in order to fulfill my childhood dream of living in this beautiful country. After 8 years living in the northwest, I decided to begin a new venture in the capital, Madrid, where I immediately felt at home. I spoke fluent Spanish by then, but in such a dynamic fast-paced city with so much to do, some many places to visit, and above all, so many tapas bars to choose from, where could I start? What was the best way to see Madrid, where should I eat and, more importantly, what and how should I order? Streets lined with tapas bars, a constant festive vibe, spirited locals who seem to know the unwritten rules of tapas, of what and how to order. What I needed was for somebody with insider knowledge to hold my hand, show me the route, and take me to the places where the locals go, ordering the specialties for me! And so, the seeds of Madrid Tapas Trail were planted. Within 2 years, our team was created, and here we are today, waiting to show visitors to Madrid a real taste of Spain.
