Arrived in Madrid on 29 Dec 2009 from Barcelona. Travelled on Air Vueling, Cost 69 Euro. Temprature
has been mild in inthis two cities - 10 to 15 deg C. Madrid had been raining intermittently with continious drizzle. Mediterrian countries (Spain, Greece and Italy) seems to have an ideal winter where tourist could still enyoy the outdoors, you could walk around the whole day without getting tired. Planning for my next destination Bordeaux, France. Apparently trains from Spain does not go into France, one will have to switch trains at the border, a place north of Spain called Hendave. Still does not have internet access from my laptop, will post pictures at my next stop. Wish you all a Happy New Year.
