Good town to visit in Spain in the summer with young kids?

What's a good town or smallish city in Spain to visit in the summer with kids (ages 2 and 5) in tow? We're looking at 3 weeks in late July/August, and would prefer a walkable place that's on a train line (or are they all?) so we wouldn't have to rent a car to explore locally or beyond. [more inside]

Going to Sudan...maybe

Say you wanted to travel up into southern Sudan from northern Uganda - neither place very happy at the moment - sometime in the next year for a journalistic research project. Say you might even want to try going all the way down the Nile to Cairo. How might you go about this? Finding out specific safety issues, red tape/paperwork, etc.

I'd like to travel the entire length of the Nile River, from headwaters to Cairo. This would involve crossing from Uganda into southern Sudan. Is this possible or just a pipe dream? How would I find out, and go about planning?

Slovenia and Croatia

Two active thirtysomething guys, two to three weeks in Slovenia and/or Croatia this (late) summer. What should we do? Ideally mix up the vigorous outdoors with the culture and the relaxing. Offbeat/non-guidebook advice is particularly welcome.
