      Time to do the Soller train and the tram?

      Palma de Mallorca May 10, 2015 at 8:22 PM

      In June 2015, I am on a cruise that's timed to be in Palma from 0900 to 1600. I am wondering if that would be sufficient time to ride the Soller train and tram? I would be thinking of one direction only.

      My thoughts would be to get a taxi from the cruise terminal to the end of the tram line at Soller? Then take the tram and transfer to the train back to Palma. Or perhaps just ride the tram and take a (faster?) bus back?

      Is that feasible in the time available? And with the summer tourist crowds? Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hi Guys
      My wife and I are booked into Hotel Isabel Avda. Moscu 2, 38670 Adeje, Tenerife, Spain
      for a week next February. The hotel looks fine, but we were wondering about the surrounding area.
      Are there any shops,bars etc.etc. near the hotel or are they all nearer the port ?
      We don't want to be in the middle of the "Veronicas" type madness but we don't want to be out in the middle of nowhere having to taxi everywhere.
      Any help would be most appreciated

      Poncebos-Urriellu-Aliva-Sotres-Tielve-Poncebos; reality check please

      Picos de Europa May 7, 2015 at 4:49 AM

      Hi, I would like some feedback on my proposed solo hike. I would also appreciate some time estimates and just any feedback, really. If you've done any of these hikes, please comment what is not to miss and what could be missed (if anything).

      Day 1: Poncebos-Refugio de Urriellu. 8km; probably take that funicular in the beginning so it's probably more like 5KM. 3-4hrs. Night shots of Urriellu.

      Day 2: Urriellu to Refugio de Aliva to Sotres. Can I actually go up Urriellu? Would like a photo right as dawn cracks. 24km; 12hrs? I'm undecided whether this is too big of a hike. If I go direct to Sotres, it's 7.8km.

      Day 3: Sotres to Tielve to Poncebos. 12km; 6hrs?

      Basically, I need to start and end at Poncebos. I'm not sure if Day 2 and/or Day 3 are too big of hikes. If I do a shorter route and I'm done in 3-4 hours, what do I do with the rest of my day? I guess I should bring a book and a frisbee for alone/make friend time. On the other hand, I don't want to have seriously underestimated the time for Day 2 and be hating myself for hiking 16 hours. Perhaps if I want a big hike I could skip Aliva on Day 2 but instead of stopping at Sotres, go straight to Tielve to make for an easy Day 3. I'm pretty fit but this definitely will be a tax on my body. That's kind of what I want though.

      I'm a Belgian student and I'm 21 years old. I'm very interested in football. Every week, I go to the stadium of my favourite team in Belgium. However, the Belgian championship hasn't the same level that the Spanish league. I often watch FC Barcelona on T.V. I would like to visit the stadium and watch a match. I'll seize the opportunity that I come soon in order to do it. Can you recommend to me the best tribune to attend the match?

    • Basque Country Information Needed-All Advice Greatly Appreciated

      Basque Country Jul 26, 2014 at 7:37 AM

      My wife and I are independent, budget, travelers with a great deal of international travel experience. We are planning on visiting the Basque country for the first time and want to do it as econmically and efficiently as possible. We have a week - ten or more days.

      We'll be coming from Paris (flyng into Bilbao) and will be relying solely on public transportation once we arrive. We'll be heading to south of France (flying out probably from Montpellier) after we visit the area.

      We're not sure the best way to organize ourselves and what to see (besides San Sebastian and Bilbao). We don't need to run around if we are able to find a good base to get a feel of the area and/or for day trips.

      Our biggest challenge is finding a reasonably priced, simple yet comfortable accomodaton. We know San Sebastian is popular during the summer season but we are rather knocked out by the sky high prices.

      Any help greatly appreciated.

      Thanks!
