Bear and Strawberries in Madrid - Day 1

30th of November 2013

Again, I was on my second destination in Europe - Spain. I will be spending 4 days in the country which won the last FIFA World Cup in South Africa, 2 days in Madrid and 2 days in Barcelona.

I landed in Madrid on the first day and did plenty of sight seeing around the city. One of the bad news that happened to me is that I lost 250 euros to a pickpocket. Nonetheless, with my friends' support, I'm able to survive all 4 days in Spain.

Puerto del Sol
Origin of Madrid's name is from Bears and Strawberries

The spot I got picked pocket - darn you pick pocketers

Jazeman Jaafar Race Testing at Silverstone

29th of November 2013

Today was probably the best day ever for me. 10 years ago, when I started watching Formula One, being able to walk into a Formula One pit garage has never ever crossed my mind. I was selected to help out for Jazeman Jaafar's race testing in Silverstone. Not only I managed to experience being a real pit crew, I also managed to get close and chat with our very own Malaysian driver, Jazeman Jaafar.

Gaelic Gaming in Dublin - Day 3

24th of November 2013

Final day in Dublin. Today, we decided to visit Europe's 4th biggest stadium - Croke Park. We have decided to conquer all 4 of the biggest stadiums in Europe starting from the 4th one. The tour guide was very friendly and interactive and we enjoyed every bit of the stadium tour. Besides that, we also visited Kilmainham Gaol, a famous Jail Museum in Dublin.
