We are in Naples today. After a leisurely start, we head into the city with Jeannette and Greg. We hadn't really planned anything, but we start walking uphill. And walk. And walk. And walk! (Col is wearing her fitbit, which later tells us we did 17,000 ... Read more >

Awoke in Citavecchia, the port city for Rome. Greg and Jeannette are booked on a bus to go into Rome today, but Col and Scott stay behind. We have 3 nights in Rome to finish our trip and don't want to travel the hour and a half by bus or 1 hour by train ... Read more >

Barcelona Monday September 7

Monday, 7 Sep 2015 | Views [188]

Time to say adiós to Barcelona and Espana. Despite our bad start we found Barcelona interesting but more fast paced than Madrid. Stopped for a coffee in town as it was too early to board our ship. We were all very protective of our luggage especially ... Read more >

Barcelona Sunday September 6

Sunday, 6 Sep 2015 | Views [201]

We spent today touring the city by hop-on hop-off bus. We find it is an excellent way to see the city, but especially in Barcelona is extremely popular. Unlike Toldeo and Valencia there are dozens of buses and each one full. The first bus takes us around ... Read more >

Barcelona Saturday September 5

Saturday, 5 Sep 2015 | Views [191]

After a relatively sleepless night, we started working out a plan of attack. Scott is kicking himself as he had separated his cards, with the travel cards in the mobile phone wallet and the backup cards in his wallet. Made the cardinal sin of having ... Read more >

Woke up to a rarity this morning, it was raining. Scuttled our plans of completing the city tour (there were 2 routes). We had 36 degrees in Madrid and all 30's everywhere else but was quite cool this morning.  Drove to Barcelona, a journey of ... Read more >

Cuenca & Valencia Wednesday September 2

Wednesday, 2 Sep 2015 | Views [186]

Spent the morning walking around the old town of Cuenca. This place is amazing and we are now disappointed we were only here for 1 night. Oh well, we can't do everything! Went back to last night's restaurant for an early lunch,  which turned out ... Read more >

Toledo & Cuenca Tuesday September 1

Tuesday, 1 Sep 2015 | Views [166]

Headed up to Zocodover Plaza this morning to jump on the hop on - hop off bus. Zocodover Plaza is a marketplace that sits high in the old city - that high we were getting escalators to the top. As we're traveling up this massive escalator who should ... Read more >

Toledo Monday 31 August

Hotel Liabeny has been a great base for our 4 days in Madrid which we were sorry to leave. It really has been that good with the staff excellent. We pi cked up our hire car, a Seat of course - we are in Spain afterall - and made our way to Toledo. That's ... Read more >

Madrid Thursday August 27

Thursday, 27 Aug 2015 | Views [259]

A few hassles with flight delays and whatnot we arrived in Madrid via Dubai and London. Waiting at the baggage carousel patiently proved to be in vain in Madrid. Our luggage was still at Heathrow. We were kindly given a lost luggage pack consisting of ... Read more >
