Receiving Birthday Cakes From Hotels & Airlines

A birthday cake from Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik 🍰

I am fortunate to be traveling a lot (thanks to my part time job) and for the last three years, I've always been away from home during my birthday which is March 30. This means that I have celebrated my special occasion staying in a hotel where I was always given a birthday cake. It's always appreciated when hotels recognize that it's your birthday and they try to make it even more special in their own little way 👍👍  Here are some of the birthday cakes I've received through the years.

Exploring Madrid, Spain

Palacio Real De Madrid

A few weeks ago, I was in Madrid for the second time since 2015. The first time I was here, I only had a few hours to see the city so I was not even able to enter the Palacio Real De Madrid nor the Cathedral. This time, I (still) had only a few hours to visit the city but it was enough to see the essentials. I know I have to be back to this Spanish capital city in the future and stay a little longer since there's just so much more to see here. In case you are planning to visit Madrid in the future, here are some of the attractions I visited which might help you building your own itinerary 😉
