I returned from my 10-day walk from Seville along the Via de la Plata, and just wanted to say that I thought it was excellent. The route was really interesting with lots of variety to keep your attention, there was easy walking along the mainly dirt roads and trails, and the waymarking was so good it would have been difficult to get lost. The hotels were all good, with special commendations for Casa de los Mercadores (Seville), La Fabrica (Fuente de Cantos), Hotel Diana (Villafranca de los Barros), and Hotel Nova Roma (Merida).
It was a great trip and a greart experience, and I hope to get back to do more some day! Also, many thanks to you and Roland for helping sort out the luggage issues early on!
