Just a short note to thank the people who responded to my post on suggestions and advice for our trip this fall. We valued the comments, and a few email conversations and have an itinerary set (sort of). We will be heading off to Lisbon, Portugal for 3 days and nights. From there, we are doing Madrid and area, then Cordoba and area. In the middle, we will be doing a 7 day cruise to the Canary Islands and to Madeira. From there it is off to Barcelona and area, then home.
This trip is going to be spectacular (to us). The more we investigate, the more anticipation takes hold. From a camel ride in the Canary’s, to ice skating on a cruise ship to staying in a Paladore, the new experiences will abound.
This will be the view from our Bed and Breakfast in Lisbon.

We are currently planning our next trip. This go round we have one firm destination and no idea where, or what, to see along with it. Here’s the itinerary potentials. The one firm place is Barcelona in Spain. We can go in several directions from here. We are leaning to 4 days in Barcelona, then to Andorra (cause it’s there) and then south to the French Mediterranean. We have looked at basing in Nice, France for a week or so and fanning out daily from there. We have also considered going to Madrid, then to Lisbon, Seville, Gibraltar and Morocco as an alternative.
We need help in determining where to go and what to see. The basic rules are, for our travel habits:
1. We will be on this trip for 2 weeks
2. We are 50 so crazy stuff don’t work for us anymore.
3. We love to eat
4. We like to try to blend in, staying away from tours etc.
If anyone has been and went places they thought were great, let me know.
