    • Where to go in the stadium?

      Barcelona May 1, 2015 at 4:40 AM

      Hello to all fans,

      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?

      Thank you for your answer!

However, my passport will be dued to expire on September and I will renew my passport during beginning of June. Can I still put my old passport number for making the booking? Whether it's possible to get a photo copy of my old passport and my new passport to show the driver when checking (as pasaport number will be changing when renewed so it will be different from what have stated online when booking).

      AVE trains

      by Turska Online Now Sep 8, 2013 at 1:56 PM

      We are allready back from Girona, but I have to ask!! We tried twice to get to those fast train from raillwaystation, and didn´t. Are we really that stupid?? We have travelled a lot, and nvere had this kind of problems. First time going to Figueres we asked tickets to "next train" and saw at timetable, there is a train going in 15min and it would take 14min. The man behind the desk didn´t understand at all, and gave us tickets to the next one leavin 10min later, but taking over twice the time. So we thought he just couldn´t give us tickets so close to train leaving time. Next time we went an hour earlier to the trainstation and had checked from internet (renfe page) that there was AVE train leaving at 9.48. The man behind the desk (not the same one) didn´t understand anything. We asked a fast train, he asked "train? train???" and looked like he didn´t understand a word! We said "Barcelona" and he started selling us tickets to normal train. We said "fast train". "Fast? Train????" Then I showed by hands a fast movement, and he said: Rapido?? I remebered the word ans said "Si si, rapido!!!" And then the man: "no rapido, no no.." After a while we had to give up and buy tickets he wanted to sell to train taking 1h 38min instead of 38min train. Is there an another station? Or what was the problem, why couln´t we get to "rapido" at neither of times?? I tried to find the answer by google, but I didn´t. This trobles us a lot, even if it is too late anyway, we are allready back at home..

      Car renting and buses and trains

      by Turska Online Now Aug 21, 2013 at 2:04 PM

      1. If we do rent a car in Girona, is it usually possible to visit France with it? (Don´t know yet, where in France, we are just  big France-lovers, and haven´t ever visited south of it, so we could just  go "somewhere" not too far for a day). Does it cost more, if we do? My friends did visit Andorra, but I don´t know if they paid any extra. (Won´t be able to ask, we will be leaving at the end of next week).

      2. If we can´t take the car to France, isn´t there a very fast train going to France? Where do I find the timetables? Are the trains expensive?

      3. Does the buses run often to villages nearby ? Like Figures (we must do a "Dali trip!!"), villages by the sea (espesially those ones with some history to see, don´t care about the beaches at all).

      I can´t belive I´m planning this late! We booked flights at may, but only for one and half weeks we have been sure, we can really go!

      Does someone know how much the taxi from Girona airport to Girona city centre will cost? I found one page saying it would be 22e. Our flight will arrive at 23.45, so we will miss the 23.30 bus. Or then we need to wait for the 00.30 bus. I don´t want to book anything, in case we might be late or even too early (it has happened with Ryanair sometimes!) The triip is in the end of August, so no hurry. Just curious..

      Is there any other big towns with easy connect from Girona airport than Barcelona?

      From Girona airport to Marseille?

      by Turska Online Now Jan 13, 2013 at 4:50 AM

      Google maps couldn´t say if there is public transport between Girona airport and Marseille. Is there? I think the problem might be in talking about two different countries, so it´s not possible in Google maps. How long it takes? Is it expensive. We will have straight flights from Tampere to Girona by Ryanair this year. We´ve allready been to Barcelona, and we have been hoping to visit southern France one day, maybe Marseille, maybe some other town. But if we do have possibility to go, we might have only little time. (My husband might only have few days vacation). So if there is not enough time we either not go at all, or maybe stay in Girona.
