Well, I did it!
I bought my ticket for Madrid today!
After two nights there to adjust to the time change, I'll take a train to Seville.
I will attempt to finish, or at least make a dent in, the Via de la Plata, picking up from Fuente de Cantos, where I was forced to stop due to heat and no water a few years ago.
I'm going to arrive in Seville on May 10 and stay two nights so I can visit Italica.
Then I'll find a bus to Fuente and begin walking on May 12, if all goes well.
I've got a great itinerary, thanks to one of my forum friends Laurie, and hope the weather will be sunny and warm, but not hot.

I'm going to Spain!
