Spain May 2014 - thoughts

Jump to last reply

There was wonderful advice in this long thread:

http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/possible-spain-trip-what-would-you-do.cfm

I am revisiting my reservations and firming things up...

Myself, my husband and our daughter who will have just turned 17 at the end of March are going on the trip....last trip before she leaves for college in August.

Currently the trip looks like this:

Day 1: Depart DFW - travel day

Day 2: Arrive Madrid 10:05 am, train to Malaga, pick up rental car and drive to Marbella, check into Marriott Marbella Beach Resort for 5 nights.

For 5 days.... ? <--- I will post what we are thinking/toying with

Day 7: Drive to Granada - drop off rental car - check into AC Palacio De Santa Paula, Autograph Collection for 2 nights.

Day 9: Train to Seville - check into our apartment for 4 nights.

Day 14: check out and train to Madrid for one night - and fly home the following afternoon...

A few things that I have realized .... I thought I had two nights in Madrid. I was on heavy pain meds recovery from a surgery while I was planning this vacation and I goofed up on that...

I am worried about the 5 nights in Marbella... it does take my daughter a few days to recover from jet lag and we don't have to be going going going on vacation.

Family still really wants to go over to Morocco...

Still have some reservations about that long first day - long flight and then train and car and driving...

All of our hotels are on points - so not a ton of flexibility there - like the "free".... the apartment is the only hard cost on lodging.

How to buy tickets to the Alhambra in Granada?

I still feel like I may want to stay the night in Ronda ...thoughts?

Struggling a little with this trip - feel like I cannot quit wrap my mind around it and want to can the whole thing and fly to Italy (feel a better grasp on it....but am not REALLY going to do that...)
