The Traveling Professor will be offering a small group tour to Spain in the Fall of 2018.  Here are his recommendations for the best hotels in Madrid, Seville, and Granada.

Review of Hotel Casa 1800 Seville:   I seriously doubt if there is a better located hotel in all of Seville.  Located along a leafy street of orange trees, not even a stone's throw away from the Cathedral, is the Hotel Casa 1800 Seville.  It's a 4-star beauty close to everything you want to be close to.  The rooms are classically rustic, imparting a feel for old Spain.  We love the pool on the roof as well as afternoon tea served in the courtyard.

Review of the Hotel Preciados:  I have stayed in this Madrid hotel three times now. I love the location just far enough away from the Puerto del Sol to be nice and quiet, but close to the action.  It is more modern in style and features a terrific restaurant.  I wake up an extra half hour each morning because I am so excited by the delicious breakfast served daily.  It is another 4-star recommendation that should be seriously considered on a trip to Madrid.

Hotel Casa del Capitel Nazari:  There is a lot to like about this hotel in the shadow of Granada's Alhambra.  First, it is located in the old town of Granada and fits right into the gusto and charm of Granada.  Service is terrific and the breakfast is out of this world. While only a 3-star hotel, I would not stay anywhere else.

Travel Product of the Month

Bluffworks Travel Product of the MonthA few months ago, I found a travel product that has been one of the most practical travel products I have ever used.  When on the road, it is always difficult for me to pack a variety of clothes for the different locations I go to and the different functions I attend.  For instance, I might spend a few days in Iceland, then I am off to Peru, then I need to go to Scotland for some business meetings.  I have found a product that is perfect for me, and maybe perfect for you.  Read the blog post to find out more.

5 Things to Do in Edinburgh, Scotland

small group tours to scotlandLinda and I just returned from a week in Scotland.  We spent a short stay in Edinburgh, the city of famous writers like Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson.  It's a busy and beautiful city of stone. We found the people to be over-the-top friendly, the food to be hearty and good, lots of things to see and do. We enjoyed or stay and plan on bringing The Traveling Professor's small group tours to Scotland and of course, Edinburgh. But for a start, see what we liked on our tour to the capital city of Scotland where the motto seems to be, "Today's Rain is Tomorrow's Whisky".
