You two are awesome!! What great and quick replies - THANK YOU!
Knowing about our different world now - I have looked at the websites and am ready to purchase! And now, with your help I have a list of the important ones to get and will do just that today!
We plan to arrive in Barcelona by plane before 10 on Friday so have most of that day (since Spain stays awake long into the evening!)
We hope to find a late AVE train to Madrid on Sunday evening so we have most of that day as well. I do know it's not enough - it is NEVER enough time! I looked at just flying out of Barcelona but it didn't seem good for some reason??? Maybe I will look again at changing that. SO - as is, I'm looking at it as 2 full days. (again, not enough - but not willing to give up Sevilla).
I have learned though, it's better to wait (and hope for a next time) than to try to cram too much in to enjoy! So I promise to remember that and plan accordingly.
Will I miss beautiful scenery traveling from Barcelona to Madrid in the dark? Dumb question, I'm sure.
Gracias Jazz+travels and Acraven!!
