Trip Report Our 2011 trip to Turkey,Madrid and Valencia

Jump to last reply

Starting with the T.R. about our trip to Turkey(may 28 to june 8); Madrid(june 8 to 12 and 15 to 18); and Valencia (june 12 to 15).

A warning: English is not my first language, and I ask for your benevolence in front of my errors (or horrors).I hope this report can bring some good information for fellows interested in those places.

Lets start with some basics of the trip, before entering the specifics of each country/city.

As usual, we bought our air tickets from Iberia; doing Montevideo-Madrid-Istanbul(may 27 and 28); Istanbul-Madrid(june 12) and Madrid-Montevideo on june 19( an early flight at 2.20 a.m.).

All flights were uneventful, starting 1 hour late on may 27,but arriving on time to Madrid on may 28 and making a connection without any problem to Istanbul, arriving at 5.30 p.m.

Return flights were also uneventful and as planned, but some dear friends had great problems due to volcano ashes reaching Uruguay from Chile(they had their flights cancelled many times and finally came to Uruguay via Rio de Janeiro some 4 days later.
Thanks to the ashes, we shared some time in Madrid and two wonderful day trips to Alcalá de Henares and Aranjuez.

In planning the trip, I used many excellent reports or advice from many persons in this forum, such as Otherchelebi,Ekscrunchy and Lincasanova.Lincasanova,a resident in Valencia give us some excellent tips on the city an opinions on our(really good) hotel there,the SH Ingles.Thanks tou you all !!!

To follow: Turkey, a most beautiful surprise.
