There's something freeing about Madrid. Untethered from strict construction, the Spanish capital lives by its own rules and welcomes an innumerable amount of definitions. Begin your quest for the right adjectives with food, as Madrid is known as a gastronomical hub of wines, meats, and chocolates served street-side on the wide boulevards and in world-class restaurants. After one too many tapas, stroll cobbled streets ornamented with centuries-old churches, and unwind at one of several sprawling parks. Museums and flea markets will offer a calm foil to the city's nightlife, which runs steadily into the early morning.
On the coast of Portugal, just a few hundred miles from the Strait of Gilbralter, Lisbon is simultaneously a bustling Atlantic port city and gateway to the Mediterranean. Domed basilicas, frenetic markets, and secluded city gardens converge to create the unique cadence of Lisboeta life. The notes of fado songs—melancholy Portuguese ballads—echo from tiny patio taverns. The smell of fresh-caught seafood wafts through al fresco restaurants in the Alfama quarter or along Bairro Alto. And down narrow lanes, clotheslines strung between open windows sway as clean laundry billows in the breeze.

"Madrid is entrenched in tradition, but the people are in constant motion—museum-hopping, street-strolling, tapas-eating, and sangria-drinking."-- AFAR Magazine
