      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.

    • Temperature in Mid July.

      Sevilla Dec 29, 2016 at 11:32 PM

      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?

      Is it worth the trip?

      by johnincornwall Online Now Oct 30, 2014 at 6:56 AM

      For regular posters/Spain dwellers etc:

      Regulars will know we visit Spain twice a year and have covered much of the south and east plus a bit more! I'm thinking of staying somewhere near Malaga next Spring - not a problem where to stay there, loads of cheap villas/houses nowadays.

      But I'm researching us taking in a trip to Ceuta, as it's only an hour by ferry. We could either go across in the morning and come back on the last ferry, or stay overnight at somewhere like the Ulises and come back next day at leisure - the trip isn't a problem.

      The dilemma is that I am reading 2 versions of Ceuta across different sites - one where it's delightful, charming and historic, the other where there is nothing to see and you'd be glad to get back to mainland Spain.

      I am heavily into history, speak fluent Spanish and love different places. The only cautionary note is my wife loves Spain but not North Africa - is it Spanish enough for her or a bit too influenced by Moroccan culture? We want to stroll around freely without being pestered. Help gratefully accepted as Ceuta and Melilla are a bit of a mystery.

      Any Need to Buy a Ferry Ticket in Advance?

      by Venelin Online Now Jul 29, 2010 at 4:41 PM

      Hi.

      I am planning to take a ferry from Ceuta to Algeciras on a Sunday evening in late September. I have no fixed schedule for the day yet, but I would still prefer a certain departure time. That is why I would like to ask you if there is any need to buy the ticket in advance, be it online or on arrival in Ceuta. Do they "run out" of tickets? I'm asking this because I saw that all companies offer a "reserved seat on board", which could theoretically mean that seats are limited in number and a Sunday evening might be a problem.
      I guess other ferries across the Strait of Gibraltar have the same tickets, so advice on these will probably guide me for the Ceuta-Algeciras line, too.

      Thank you in advance

      Ceuta or Tangier

      by westcaicosgirl Online Now Jun 2, 2004 at 4:15 AM

      We are going to be on Holiday in Andalucia and wanted to go to North Africa for the day. But Ceuta or Tangier? I've always been fascinated by Ceuta but how like north Africa is it? Will I be disappointed that it is just like Spain? I've done plenty of travelling to tough places, so I'm not looking for an easy option - I've heard that Tangier is ghastly.....but that sort of appeals to me (!). Any comments anyone?
