Hello everybody! My name is Alice and I have just arrived in Wonderland. As a courtesy to the development of technology, I didn’t arrive here by falling down the rabbit whole, but by taking the metro 🙂

Before sharing my wonderland with you, let’s play a little game: I tell you a few words and you think of a little story around them. And then you can compare your creation with my real story. So the words are: trains, museum, vintage.

I must confess: I have never been in a museum of trains before. I love trains just to the extent that they take me where I want to go ( I know, I am such a practical person). But somehow I ended up at the “museum of trains” in Madrid. Why? Well…because I trust my friends and their recommendations (thanks Marina!). My friend also told me that during the weekend, a kind of a vintage market was set up in the museum. I didn’t expect much when I entered. But I got a unique experience and discovered a “must take everybody there” place.

So, in a huge hall there were all types of old trains displayed on 3 rows. And between the trains, in a wonderful mix of messy and beautiful arrangements, there were these little boutiques that sold everything that a vintage-lover could dream of. In the background I could hear the sound of live music – pure delight.

I’ll categorize my findings in:

1. For my home aka the place which shows the real me

Take me to light up your home
Take me to light up your home
My favourite objects in the whole market

2.For my soul which I like to pamper on every occasion

I am the master of my fate/ I’m the captain of my soul
I am the master of my fate/ I’m the captain of my soul

3. For my stomach which endures all my curiosities

Food and all that it implies

And last but not least… the trains! They were pretty impressive. The one I especially liked was a train-apartment which made me imagine how people were travelling many years ago.

An apartment in the train
An apartment in the train
Even the trains can be beautiful
Even the trains can be beautiful

To sum it all up, when you plan to visit Madrid, take a look at the museum’s website. The market is opened just once per month and you don’t want to miss it. Search for “The motor market”, you won’t regret it!
