That's my hopeful plan! I want to start from Merida because I need to take some side trips via taxi/bus from there before I start walking, and then side trips from Caceres when I get there, too. Being from Albuquerque, New Mexico, I need to visit Alburquerque in Espana, of course. That area of Extremadura bore many of the Spanish conquistadores (the good, the bad and the ugly) who came to what is now New Mexico in the early 1600s, so the history is interesting to me. Starting in late March. I only have a month, so will walk til I can't anymore.
