Maps By Bénédicte Barrett
This is a map of El Retiro park in Madrid. El Retiro is a 125 hectares park filled with scupltures, monuments and galleries. Madrid is the next European capital city I want to visit when the pandemics is over. I am currently taking some Spanish classes and I am looking forward to be able to use my new language skills !
This place is special to me because this is the first capital city I visited when coming to the UK (I grew up in France) and this is where I first practiced my English where everyone speaks with a typical accent! I later lived in Edinburgh during my studies. Edinburgh is such a unique town, I love the sound of bagpipes and the smell of roasted malt !
