Spain - Madrid & Seville - 2017

April 15th we flew from Athens to Madrid, spent one night there then took the fast train to Sevilla at 8:30am.  We had one afternoon plus two full days in Seville then Cindy flew home to USA.

On April 19th I began walking the via de la Plata route of the Camino de Santiago with my cousin.
