It all began with a weekend trip to Madrid.
The day started off with a walking tour across the historical sites of the Spanish capital. Astounded by the excellent service provided by the tour guides of Madride Travel, I decided to take up their offer to join the night crawl too. Turning up at 8pm sharp at the bear statue of Puerta de Sol, a horde of 20 other international tourists joined in on the fun. Strolling through the cobblestoned streets an hour into the crawl, I overheard my travel partner striking up a conversation with this man with distinguished blonde hair and red beard.
