My family of 3(a couple in their late 30's and a 4yr old) is in the process of planning a trip to India with a stopover in Spain for the week of Oct 25-Nov 1st. While planning this trip and booking tickets, I'm facing a dilemma and am hoping to get some help.
- My trip to India is for the 3 weeks with a 1 week stopover in Spain Oct 1st - Nov 1st. Should I make the stopover on my way to Asia on on the way back. I picked the way back because the time difference between Asia and Europe is 3hrs and with our 4yr old jetlag won't be an issue. However, I'm wondering about weather in Spain that late in the year. From reading the forum I understand that it can be hit or miss. I'd really appreciate some suggestions to ease this Dilemma.
- We have 2 big holidays in Oct(4th and 24th) and I'd like to be in India for those holidays.
- I'm also hoping that I could get an itinerary for our stay in Spain. We typically like to walk the area/try the cuisine and have a balance so our 4.5yr old child doesn't get too tired or bored. If the weather co-operates we would like to go to the beach for a day but, a city vacation would be great too. This is our first time in spain and we'd like to try to hit the must see places in Madrid/Barcelona.
Here is what I was considering for a itinerary.
Leave SFO on Oct 1st fly directly to India. Leave india on 25th Oct to Madrid, Leave Barcelone on Nov 1st/2nd which gives us a week in Spain. Please help and sorry my post is so long.
