What You Could Get in Madrid for $10 – How to Stretch the Budget to Travel Around Spain’s Capital City

Hola, mi amor!

So, after covering Seville just a couple of weeks ago, we’re going back to Spain to see how we can stretch $10 USD to travel in another city in the country. And this time, we’re off to the capital city of Spain: Madrid.

If I have to be honest, I personally don’t know much about the city except for being a football fan that forced me to familiarize myself with Real Madrid FC.

I think it’s only through football that gets me understood about other stuff, from the heat between Real and Barcelona that has something to do with the political situation. Yada yada yada.

Now, thanks to Martin of Madrid Discovery, we’ll get closer to the capital city and see how far we could get there with your $10 USD!

So anyway, this gave me an idea to compile various instant noodles around the world. And in this post, I’m collaborating with some other fellow bloggers to present instant noodles in various countries with some hacks to serve it when you feel a bit fancy.

I mean, I’m from a country where Indomie comes from. I don’t just buy them when I’m on survival mode. I buy them because it’s a necessity in my household. #asianproblem
