    • Camping out?

      Canary Islands Nov 12, 2015 at 7:55 AM

      Hi, my partner and I will be visiting the Canary Islands for two months over Christmas.
      We are really keen to camp out and have discovered a number of state run camp sites which sound great but hard to find much out about, I do understand you must get a permit to camp.
      Loving the outdoors and exploring, we don't mind a lack of facilities and being a bit out of the way.
      Any information about camping on Gran Canaria and Tenerife would be greatly appreciated!

      We would also be very up for helping out on any projects, anything eco-minded, help with building, caring for animals, gardening and so on, especially if there is availability for camping!
      So if anyone can think of anywhere or anyone who could help, please get in touch!

      Many Thanks

      From Madrid to Toledo on December 31

      Toledo Nov 25, 2015 at 12:16 AM


      I supposed to arrive at Barajas International Airport of Madrid at 17:00. I’m going to take a taxi and reach Puerta Atocha Railway Station. There I supposed to take a train and get Toledo.
      The problem is, all this should happen on December 31 and last train from Atocha leaves for Toledo at 18:50 hours. So, if my airplane will not be late then I will have enough time to catch this last train and get Toledo. But what should I do if my airplane will be late? What is the best option to get Toledo in case I miss that last train?
      1. Should I take a taxi at Barajas International Airport and ride to Toledo? How much it will cost (approximately)?
      2. Should I take ALSA bus from T-4 Terminal in Barajas? Does ALSA have buses to Toledo from T-4? Do they provide transportation till late evening December 31?
      3. Should I take a bus at Plaza Eliptica Bus Station? Do buses leaving from this bus station provide transportation till late evening December 31?

      And in case I will succeed to get Toledo by train. Will taxi available in Toledo Railway stations late evening December 31 (about 19:00)?
      Thank you in advance. Answers of people living in Madrid and Toledo will be especially appreciated.

But I love train rides and would like to know which stretch is a must to do by train because of the landscape.

      Though I head Somo is very quiet at night - so it makes sense to go to Santander for the nights. I assume the city would be nice.

      Just wondering.

      a) I think the last ferry is not too late (like 9pm) - so how much would a taxi be from Santander to Somo in the nights?

      b) Would it be better to stay in Somo - or in Santander and just commute to Somo in the morning for the surf lessons?

      Hi all, could anyone recommend a clean and cute rural house in Cantabria for august this year? We're flying into Santander, and would like to stay somewhere in Cantabria for 2-3 days on our way to Asturias (we're driving).

      We would like a place in the countryside rather than the coast, where we can easily go trekking, kayaking and/or horse riding without having to drive around too much. Maybe around Potes could be convenient? We are looking for something really scenic. Once in Asturias we will be staying in Picos de Europa, so maybe something slightly different-looking.
