Actually, I wrote this blog post between Amsterdam, London and Berlin, which is fantastic, don’t get me wrong, but I can’t avoid feeling melancholic about Madrid.

Are you a cat person? Cat people are generally known for being more distinctive than dog people, and are also pretty much the coolest people, ever.
Cats have also been the dominant species to be found on the internet for some time now. The occasional panda or turtle photos are cute, but nothing comes close to the feline. Cats are fluffy, independent and 100% viral, which leads us to the million dollar question: When it comes to hotel rooms, why are dogs having all the fun?
