Upper half of Spain, 2nd attempt.

Jump to last reply

Hi; We had an itinerary for travel to Spain this year, but it didn't happen. Actually I liked our first itinerary better, but this was a compromise with our friends.

So, 1. My wife and I fly N/S, Boston to Madrid on Iberia. <August 24th>

2. Will stay in Madrid one night and walk off jet lag. We arrive at the airport at 7:20am. Using points at the Westin. <August 25th>

3. Early flight on Iberia to Santiago and meet our friends. <August 26th and 27th>

4. Rent a car and drive to Salamanca. <August 28th and 29th>

5. Drive to Leon. <August 30th and 31st>

6. Drive to Santillana del Mar. <September 1st and 2nd> Will visit Balboa as a day trip.

7. Drive to San Sebastian. < September 3rd, 4th and 5th> Have booked Hotel Maria Cristina using points and dollars.

8. Drive to Burgos. <September 6th and 7th> Looking at the Marriott A.C. Hotel.

9. Drive our friends to the airport for their flight home. <September 8th>

10. Drive to Toledo. <September 8th and 9th> If there was a bus or shuttle to get to Toledo from the airport and back to the airport, we would do that. Will not go through Madrid.

11. Drive to the airport for our flight home <September 10th>

So, hotel suggestions would be good. For us, I think 150 euro works.

I have looked at some of the Poradors and they seem expensive, but our friends may want to stay in a few.

My wife and I like the very old Paradors, so we shall see. Thanks for any help. Richard
