Trip Report RHK's spring trip: Spain, Italy and Morocco

Jump to last reply

SPAIN, MOROCCO (WE HOPE) AND ITALY
MARCH 1 TO APRIL 6, 2011


We have owned a time share (weeks 9 and 10) in southern Spain for about 3 years, a gift from Karen’s aunt and uncle. We have never visited there, nor had they in over 20 years of ownership..

We decided we should check it out, and why not do two other exchanges while we are at it.

The logistics are in place and we leave on Tuesday March 1, 2011… Its FF miles on American to Barcelona via London, where we change to B/A. We will spend a few days in Barcelona in an apartment, then go to the t/s south of Malaga for a week. From there we fly to Marrakech, Morocco via Madrid on Iberia where we will spend a week in another time share. As of this week we still plan on this portion of the trip, unless unrest increases in that country. From there we will fly on Ryan Air to Pisa, Italy. We have a rental car from there to another week’s timeshare in Loro Ciuffenna, Tuscany. From there we go to Umbria, near Todi, where my sister lives for about 4 nights. Finally we head to Rome where we leave the car and spend 4 nights in Rome in another apartment. I was last there in 1965 and Karen has never been there…. We fly back to Boston on April 4 via London on B/A and finally on A/A.

For those of you who do not know us from the Asia and other boards, we are frequent travelers. We are 67 y.o. and fully retired.

I plan to write from time to time while on the road and look forward to your suggestions, comments and complaints… Hey, it’s the Europe board, there have to be complaints…

My friend Bookchick assures me that you will be kind to me….

Bob & Karen
