Tickets to Spain

0 comments suggest edit

Picked up our airline tickets to Spain today. We’ll be visiting in November, landing in Madrid, travelling through Andalucia and ending up in Barcelona. The main thing I want to visit in Madrid is the area where I used to live called Torrejon de Ardoz.

On the way there, we have a five hour stop over in Philadelphia. Apart from eating some cheesesteaks, anybody know what there is to do in Philly?

    Goddammit, Phil!! I live in Alcala, not 5 kilometers from Torrejon!! If you never been there, and you want to see a really beautiful place (Torrejon is just a residential place) send me a line at picacodigos[at]ya[dot]com, 'cause I'll sure be glad to meet you in person and be your personal guide for the tour!!

    I'm working on building out their new tourism site, should be up sometime in october.



    the old one is http://www.gophila.com/



    you should be able to find something to do there, unfortunately i cannot give an opinion; i've only been there once, and it visiting a friend in college, so i was pretty much drunk the whole time...

    Codecruncher, I lived in Torrejon for three years when I was young, so even though it is residential, I have sentimental reasons for visiting it. Though I wouldn't mind meeting up for some cafe con leche después.



    Well I probably wouldn't mind being drunk the whole time, but not sure if my wife would like that. ;) I'll check out the site, thanks!

    OK I'm officially jealous. First Japan, then Burning Man and now Spain. I think I'll read some other blogs for a while to calm down.

    :)
