Hi soon to be travel friends,
I going on the Spanish Spree on July22/23. The reason for the double date? I'm leaving from Canada and we book our trips it includes a day of travel. So I think the tour starts on the 23rd of July.
SO July 23 to Aug.5 Who's going???? Summer in Spain going to be great!!

    i am seriously considering going on this tour on this departure date… will hope to know soon. Are you doing any other tours before or after this one? I"m thinking about doing Croatia Island Cruising right before.

    Hey mmcruz, Not sure where I will be staying Madris. I might stay at the hotel where we all end the tour or I might go to a hostel. I’m reading a bunch of reviews to make up my mind.

    Hi CatMa, Great to here about some Canadians coming! Can’t wait!

    Hi Emily, I’m also staying 2 extra nights (flight was cheaper on the 7th!). I was also thinking booking at the same hotel. I was also looking at the possibility of couchsurfing with some locals in Madrid. Keep in mind that ill be going solo, so if you wanna book a hotel together we can perhaps split the cost together. Its just an idea.

    Catma, Im from Montreal. Im departing montreal on the 22nd and arriving to Toronto for my connection flight to Madrid. Im taking the 21h45 flight with Air Canada. Are we perhaps on the same flight?

    Awesome news Catma! Im a bit less stressed out now!
    I might be in Toronto a few days before the departure date. I want to visit my cousin who lives there. Add me in facebook, we can perhaps meet up or at least meet up at the airport.
    When do you fly back to Toronto?

    Hi Emily, I just tried to join the Facebook group. I love that you can get to know people before you ever get there. I’m actually going to visit a friend in PEI before I get to Spain and then possibly going to visit my cousin in London after. I haven’t booked my flights yet, just the tour. What about you? Are you going on your own?

Questions?
