Hello people :) Wow, don't think I've ever started a thread in the travel forum before...

Anyway, the title says it before - what do you know?! I want to spend a significant portion of my summer in Madrid, hopefully doing work experience - so any advice about places to stay, things to do, way of life etc... I'm just fishing for ideas and advice really!

If anyone's lived in or spent a lot of time in Madrid before I'm particularly interested

:)

Thanks!

    It depends what you like and what you do...

    There are many things to do of all sorts. It´s a very modern city and it´s turned that way in the last few years.

    So as I don´t know what you like it´d be too difficult to give you any advice.

    And how is your Spanish?

    My Spanish teacher comes from Madrid so obviously she loves it but she is always telling us that there's a big problem with pick-pockets there so be a bit careful. They target tourists, so she's only ever had problems when she's with her English husband!
