One last look before finalizing

we have been working on planning a month long trip in may to visit spain and portugal - with great imput by fodorites. as i plan i find that even a month is not enough time - totally skipping barcelona and southwest spain. when we travel we tend to avoid staying in big cities. we plan to visit 9 regions, run into cities (cordoba, seville, lisbon, santiago de campostele, bilboa and san sebastian) for a day to explore the highlights. we usually then take a day trip or 2 to explore the mountain and coastal villages. now that you know our style of travel here is our possible/probably itinerary. would love suggestions and comments. thanks
