Portugal and Spain in 15 Days

Jump to last reply

For reasons too long to explain, and that no one will care about, our plans have changed from France, to Portugal and NW Spain. The time frame will be the last two weeks of September, and there will be two couples in their mid 60's.

We've been to Madrid, Anadalusia, Barcelona/Catalunya before, along with a quick stop in San Sebastian ... but no other areas of Spain, and never to Portugal. Besides a few days in Lisbon, and a few in the Porto area, we are starting pretty much from scratch for this adventure. I will do my due diligence on research, guiedbooks, etc., but at this point, we are fairly ignorant of the country towns that we should visit ... and the countryside is our focal point, it's what we like best about Europe. We like small towns with with good restaurants to walk to, good wine and beer, local culture that we can soak up, meeting nice people ... we don't speak Portuguese or Spanish, but being dopey English-only speakers has never stopped us before from having a great time with locals in France, Italy, Germany, Spain, ... England, Ireland, Scotland ...oh wait, some of those places claim to speak English too.

Anyway, we're thinking Portugal and Galicia ... the cities are easy enough to learn about, but any recommendations on small towns in this far western corner of Europe would be appreciated.

Thanks!
