Sometimes I feel so lucky to have English as my first language, but then I remember that I wouldn’t have had to deal with the visa process if I was part of the EU. My second layover was at the Madrid airport, so there was always an English translation on every sign. I’m pretty sure I learned more Spanish on this trip that I did the entire two years I took Spanish in high school. The Madrid airport is easily the most colorful airport I’ve ever been in. It is absolutely beautiful, and I only saw it when it was still dark outside. I’m sure it’s even more beautiful in the daylight.
