      Spain in May

      Spain Dec 22, 2016 at 11:42 AM

      Hola Todos .

      My friends and me are going to Spain in May. Will spend two weeks in Madrid (want to study Spanish) and after that we have 12 days to see the country. Can someone help me with the itinerary? Would love to see Salamanca, Toledo, Seville. Rhonda, Cadiz, Puerta banus, malaga, granada and majorca. Don't mind skipping Barcelona but we want to see Andalusia really well. Don't want to drive from Madrid to Seville but I don't mind driving around Andalusia (Blablacar is also an option).

      Happy travelling

      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

      I was contemplating getting off a cruise ship at Cadiz in Mid July. It was my intention to hire a car and travel to Seville, Malaga, Cartegena and Valencia. However inquiries show it could be quite hot then even 47 degrees celsius. Is it that hot and would it be better for me to travel to this region at some other time other than July/August?

    • Problem with the route

      Palencia Apr 21, 2015 at 12:53 PM

      Hi everyone,
      I live in Izmir Turkey, and I'll go to Palencia in May for a week. I learned the nearest airport is Valladolid airport. I didn't find a direct flight. The travel company offered me two alternatives. 1) Istanbul to Madrid with Iberia Airlines and then using bus shuttle Madrid to Valladolid (Iberia Airlines providing bus shuttle). It seems rather good, however the arriving times is bit late. I'll be in Valladolid about 2 a.m, and I've never been in Spain. I don't know how can I find a transportation to Palencia at that late hour, I probably should stay at a hotel.
      Second is Izmir to Istanbul, Istanbul to Bilboa with Turkish airlines. The company warned me Bilbao is about two and half an hour away from Valladolid, but the arriving time better than the first. I'll be in Bilboa at 1600 (four pm in the afternoon). The problem is I don't know how can I go to Palencia from Bilbao.
      So my question is which route is good? If second is, how can I reach Palencia from Bilbao.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi all:
      I did get most info from previously posted Qs here, very helpful, as always. Still need you to specify - one post stated that BUS is cheaper, more scenic and easy to get to the center. Sounds very good, but please tell me - from what station in Madrid do I take bus to Salamanca? What Metro station is the closest? How LONG is bus ride vs AVE train and REGULAR TRAIN?? Please compare prices for bus, AVE, and regular train. From what RAILROAD station in Madrid do I go to Salamanca? Thank you very much.
