If you’ve got an extra $2,000 a month hanging around, you might want to drop it on Beacon.

Madrid Trip Round-Up!

It’s with great sadness that I say goodbye to Madrid. I loved my time here and was so happy to help the NH Collection EuroBuilding Hotel celebrate their grand re-opening. If you haven’t kept up with my trip, relive it all today while I fly back on not one, but two airlines I’ve never flown…
