Our Travel Schedule

Dear Family and Friends,

More about our trip.  We (Chuck, Clarke, Brenda and I) are flying to Madrid on Sunday.  We will tour Madrid and surrounding areas the first week.  We will then rent a car and tour southern Spain and Gibraltar.  From there we will take a ferry to Morocco.  We will spend about a week in Morocco before flying to Mallorca to meet Audrey and Jim (Chuck's sister and her husband) and to board a cruise ship.  The six of us will cruise across the Atlantic, ending up in Panama.  We will fly back home from there.  (This is the nutshell version)

Chuck has done a wonderful job of designing our trip...air travel, hotels, and car rental.  He provided me with the following schedule calendar.  I am hoping to post to the blog as we travel.  This schedule should give you a mental model of what we are doing and when.
