Just booked our flights to Spain!

Saw a fare sale with Lufthansa (it was not there a few days ago) and, having been watching fares for some time, we decided it was a fare we could not only live with, but be happy with. In and out of Madrid, next May, but most of the time will be spent in Andaluica. Not counting Madrid, we'll have 22 nights (we decided to save Northern Spain for another time when we can give it the time it deserves)

So all we have to do now is try to rein in the plans that are all over the place (how many itineraries have I posted so far? haha) We'll do more research before we decide for sure; but now we have parameters to work with.

Excited, as this is our first trip to Spain.

Thanks for all the help we've received so far (and the reality checks)

Congratulations!

When you plan your trip, try to go on a straight line and do not backtrack. The train is the best means of transportation.

Limited trains for us, Benny! We like to be in control of our trips, and not be restricted by train schedules. also, we love to wander the countryside, and national parks. Can't do that on trains! Just our style. (but no car in the cities)

We will take trains between Madrid and Andalucia, and anywhere else it makes sense. But mostly, we travel by car.
