It’s actually doable...

Best Madrid neighborhood for food

Malasaña is to Madrid what Williamsburg was to Brooklyn in the early 2000s.

Aeroplan Temporarily Waiving Infant Charges On Award Tickets

Bringing a child under 2 years old on a plane with you is free for domestic flights if you don't buy them a seat.
