Autumn to Almost Winter in Spain

I need advice with my Spain itinerary. I’ve been reading this forum and it has been most helpful. However, as I am travelling for two weeks during the autumn to winter season, I would like advice on what would be the best places to go and which places I should drop.

Nov 20 Arrive in Madrid – Explore Madrid. O/N Madrid.
Nov 21 Explore Madrid. O/N Madrid.
Nov 22 Day trip to Toledo. O/N Madrid.
Nov 23 Day trip to Segovia & detour to Avila. O/N Madrid. (Is it easy to find transport from Segovia to Avila and then from Avila back to Madrid?)
Nov 24 Day trip to Cuenca. O/N Madrid.

Camino de Santiago

Has anyone traveled the Camino de Santiago? I was thinking of doing the Camino Portugues since I have a good friend in Porto. Any input would be great!

Ben's Inn
Bar in Valencia, Spain

10 Days in Barcelona?

Around February we are trying to take a ten-day trip to Barcelona. We are thinking though that the entire trip won’t be spent in Barcelona. I lived in Cadiz for 6 months so we had thought about going and visiting my family there, or perhaps taking a train to Madrid and splitting the time between Barcelona & Madrid.

Any suggestions?

So we, my friend and i, are going for a month through Europe. We have slimmed it down a lot…she really wants to go into morocco…mainly shes thinking tangier since its right there. We are 24, both speak fluent spanish, a bit of Portuguese and she speaks fluent french. I am a little worried after reading about tangier…we will be traveling just us two. Is it worth it? How long is the ferry ride? Is there another option with in a similar time frame of 1-2 days. Or should we skip it. We are trying to pin down our must see cities. Any thoughts will help. Thanks!

Running of the brides...


I can’t wait to head to the running of the bulls next year (if I can persuade my boyfriend to come with me to visit Spain from the US…he hates to fly…argh, but maybe I can persuade him with sangria) and to see this crazy event. My friend is getting married in Boston soon and went to buy a wedding dress at an event they called the Running of the Brides.

3. Take train from Barcelona to Madrid, spend 2 days
4. Take train from Madrid to Lisbon, spend 1 day
5. Fly from Lisbon to London

Shall I buy a regional train pass? Any other interesting places along the journey?
