Barcelona to Paris Road Trip

Jump to last reply

Hello, fellow travelers. I'd like some advice on a trip my mother and I would like to plan for the fall (early/mid September). I am a 30 y/o woman, she's 61. We'd be leaving from Philadelphia to BCN and returning from Paris. My mom has expressed an interest in taking the train often. We're shooting for no more than 14 days.

Obviously, I am thinking at least three days should be spent in BCN and the same goes for Paris, so that leaves eight days for exploring other parts of Spain and Provence. I'm having a hard time mapping out the rest of our trip, so I'd like to hear from anyone who has done a trip like this on the highlights and must-sees, and how they got around.

About us: We're not as much interested in luxury as we are in exploring. We're both in good physical condition (but keep in mind, my mother is in her 60s) and we're both natively fluent in Spanish. We're likely going to try to stay in places we find on Airbnb as much as we can to save some cash.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
