Don Quixote and La Mancha Odyssey
Search for Windmills, Paradors, and Castles
On this odyssey we sought to discover one of the most famous areas in Spain thanks to literature: La Mancha. The route started near Toledo and was the setting for the adventures of Don Quixote, the character brought to life by Miguel de Cervantes. Along the way, we saw wide open plains and small mountain ranges with one of the region's more famous symbol: the windmills of La Mancha, visited Castles in Spain, Stayed at paradors, and explored the plains of La Mancha
My wife(Dee) got to experience a life-long dream of seeing the Windmills up close and personal, exploring La Mancha, going through Castles in Spain and staying at paradors.
For this trip the travel specialist worked with my wife's proposed itinerary to fashion a very delightful and trouble-free drive-it-yourself 12 day trip.
Although there were 4-travelers (niece, her friend, myself and my wife) the car the travel specialist reserved for us ...had room for our luggage and good seating space and just small enough to get through narrow village streets, Since it was a drive-it-yourself trip (about 2000 KM through La Mancha, Toledo, & Madrid), the travel specialist supplied us with a portable WiFi unit which allowed us to use our smart phones' GPS to augment the car's GPS. We never truly got lost just small detours.
We had no problems renting the car, checking into paradors, or meeting with city guides...All arranged by the travel specialist.
Visit Madrid when it is not "torn up" so that we could take city tours and ride the sight seeing get on - get off bus.
