My corporate journey to Madrid
My business visit to the Spanish capital
My initial trip to Madrid happened 10 years ago, while me and my cousin were still little children and our parents brought us on a family trip with the automobile. I had some obscure memories, but appreciated the pleasing atmosphere and therefore as soon as my ceo explained I had to go on a business trip to the Spanish main city; I jumped with joy… though I did not show it while in front of him!
The office assistant in our company booked my flights and told me she sorted out my Madrid apartment, which in the beginning appeared odd and I asked her why not a hotel room. She explained that she used similar Madrid holiday accommodation when she went on her vacation last year and that she was very pleased with the facilities and the discounted rental price.
As she explained, the Madrid apartment she picked for me was just remarkable. I stayed in the centre of the urban center, had direct link to the commercial zone where I was presupposed to train my regional colleagues and connect with the executives and had all of the luxuries I wanted.
The most captivating thing of all was that I was accommodated very close to the Plaza Mayor place, which I think is the most impressive spot in Madrid. I had time to enjoy the statue of King Philip III, the architecture of Casa de la Panaderia and the outstanding Arco de los Cuchilleros. In the evenings I went for meal at the open-air eating places at the square. I was by myself but never felt lonesome there, as Madrid has that great enchanting feeling, where one could never feel bad after being between so many good people. Then I went back to my Madrid apartment for a good night rest as I needed to be ready for the following day.
