Picnics are always “in”. Sharing food and drinks with our loved ones in a wonderful landscape can’t go wrong. But you can always strive for more and, to do that, we need to take care of the little details.
Choose the right location
Good sights aren’t the only thing to keep in mind when choosing where to have a picnic. Sunny weather is great and all but after a while we can risk getting a sunburn. Find a place with plenty of trees so you can have access to some shade once in a while.
Also, if you can stay close a water fountain, great! Wine, beer and soft drinks can dehydrate so you can’t disregard cold, fresh water.
Pick the time of day
Picnics work best with daylight so the best time for a picnic is midday or early afternoon. Midday is ideal because we have plenty of time to enjoy the weather and natural lighting (which, coincidently, makes for awesome Instagram pics). Early afternoon is also a good time for a picnic cause sundown with good wine and better company is unique.
It goes without saying that the quality of the food must be up to par. Mainly because it needs to withstand outdoor conditions as long as possible. Ideally, you should pick snacks to share and a wide variety of sweet and salty. If we want to enjoy our Picnic we need to satisfy all necessities.
Drinks should be ice-cold for a better experience. You’ll be needing refreshment for the hottest hours so try bringing a cooler along with you.
The picnic: a plan that’s on the up and up
It makes sense that nothing beats a picnic in Madrid, because it’s flooded with marvelous venues with the best landscapes. We have not only parks but also architectural beauties all around the city that make picnics a cultural activity as well.
