My first summer trip will be to Spain and Morocco with my oldest son and we are really excited!! Both of us love history, architecture, and art with a mix of adventure, but on a bit of a budget. So here’s the plan so far…
We fly into Madrid but since we have been there before, we won’t spend too much time there this trip.
So our first real stop will be Caceres, a town about 3 hours west of Madrid. It’s a beautifully preserved Medieval city with so much history.
Stop No. 2 : Merida: A city full of Roman Ruins just a little South of Caceres.
Stop 3: Sevilla: Known for its Flamenco dance. I hear Casa de la Memoria is the place to go.
Next Stop: Tangier, Morocco via Gibraltar, Spain and down to Marrakech. My son wants to take a camel ride through the Sahara from Marrakesh to Fez… And so enters the adventure.
Next: back North to Malaga, Spain. I, of course, will stop in a little town named Almunecar which is about an hour East of Malaga. I fell in love with this little town on the Southern coast of Spain.
We will stop in Granada on our way back to Madrid.
