More Paradors!

A 10 day tour, not far from home

5th June 2022
Bag End

So for those of you who suffer from insomnia, we're planning another Blog covering 5 more Paradors over 10 nights, starting tomorrow.

A couple we've been to before (Albacete and Manzanares) both of which are "modern" Paradors and not that interesting but they fit into a neat route from Bag End, up to Madrid Province then back down again, and back home via Jaén. We have visited the Jaén Parador too but that is an interesting one and it's a long time since we were there.

Even in "boring" places like Albacete, we are determined to find some things of interest; there may even be a knife museum there. Who knows!?

So, only if you fancy it, please join us on this new "adventure".

By the way, as some of you will know, this trip was planned as a cheer-us-up project after we had to cancel our long-planned trip to UK (Norfolk Broads, North Wales, etc), due to a nasty bout of vertigo that John suffered just as we were about to set out. I'm pleased to report that, after many weeks and a lot of aggro, Brittany Ferries are at last coughing up the refund that we were due, having paid extra for "Flexi" fares. The refund is going to more than cover this Parador trip. It only took them 36 days to respond!

Here's the route if we were to travel between Paradors on the most direct route (which for the most part we won't!). Please follow us and let us know what you think. But only if you fancy coming along with us, this time.

More soon.
