The Ugly Side of Madrid

There are so many things to love about Madrid, the food, the sights, the nightlife and nice hospitable people.
I was in this beautiful city for work in March, after spending the entire day at the Facebook Headquarters with a group of co-workers, we had a few hours to enjoy the city's nightlife before our flight the next morning.

I planned to meet up with a few friends who live near Madrid and one of them a very close Italian friend was attacked in the metro by a guy.
Thank God for the metro police and things were taken care of, but we weren't all lucky later in the night.
We were followed by some creepy guys calling after us and telling all the creepy things they want to do to us and want us to do for them.
We were so afraid we ran for our lives and didn't stop until we found the police and narrate our story to them.
They helped us to our hotel and the creepy guys ran the other side.
I will be visiting Barcelona soon and I really hope this experience won't repeat itself,
I still love Madrid and believe you should always know the emergency number of the country you visit,use your hotel taxi and learn some self - defence moves to protect yourself when needed.
Watch the latest video on this issue and engage in the conversation.

  1. Very sorry to hear about this unpleasant experience in Madrid! But this could really happen anywhere as, unfortunately, there are creepy people in most places... Good thing that you got away unharmed.


  2. Oh no this is horrible to hear Adeola. I've never heard of such things happening there, Italy though it's all people tell me unfortunately. Guys stalk and follow any girl who is solo, it can be very scary. Catcalling is something I despise, always have. It makes you feel like a worthless piece of meat and as women we are much, much more than that.


  3. Oh yes we are! It is so sad watching this phenomenon becoming a norm and nobody is speaking up about it!

  4. Thank you Anouk, yes unfortunately this can happen anywhere and it is just sad it is even happening at all.

  5. Oh gosh, so very sorry, you guy must have been all so afraid! Im wondered as I remember it as a quiet city..dont let this bad experience could affect ur next trip! Hugs my girl <3

  6. Happy to know you are fine and well. That must have been a very scary experience. I have always heard great things about Spain though. Please take good care of yourself.

  7. Wow that's a really unpleasant experience, I am so sorry for you.. But it can happen in any city right? Hope you still enjoyed Madrid

    So sorry you have to experience this in Madrid ...

  9. So sorry that happened to you. Cat calling is never right, and it happens in practically every major city in every country. It's so disrespectful.

  10. Glad you stayed safe babe! Enjoy the rest of your trip :)

  11. Oh wow, that's crazy! Hope you have a better trip/time in Barcelona..


Have your say, I do appreciate it and will respond to all in due time.
