      Travelling by train or bus?

      Cantabria Feb 27, 2015 at 5:10 AM

      From Biarritz I will travel in July untill Cangas de Onis and back to San Sebastian for two weeks. Most of the hotels are booked because I found them lovely and cheap more or less. I am aware about the bus and trains in this region. It seems that it will be faster travelling by bus. But I love train rides and would like to know which stretch is a must to do by train because of the landscape.

    • Windsurf and Kitesurf in Lanzarote

      Isla de Lanzarote Feb 20, 2015 at 3:38 PM

      Hello everyone,

      My girlfriend and I will visit this amazing island in April and we also want to learn kitesurfing or windsurfing but don't know what is easiest because we will stay for 2 weeks and we want to explore also other thinks on the island. Any recommendation where to stay and also where is better for kite or windsurf lessons ? I saw on internet that Famara is good for surfing but there is nothing else to do ?!? It's seems like super small village.

      Best regards,
      Matija

    • Pizzeria near Paseo Maritimo?

      Benalmádena Feb 7, 2015 at 7:06 AM

      I think that's the name of the area at least, it is the beach near the Puerto Marina area? There used to be a nice pizzeria at the very beginning of the restaurant area, just next to the opening to get down to the beach, that my family used to LOVE. We are finally going back this summer after almost 10 years, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if it's still there? (Google maps still shows the blue tops as it used to be so I have some hope?)

Sounds very good, but please tell me - from what station in Madrid do I take bus to Salamanca? What Metro station is the closest? How LONG is bus ride vs AVE train and REGULAR TRAIN?? Please compare prices for bus, AVE, and regular train. From what RAILROAD station in Madrid do I go to Salamanca? Thank you very much.

    • Travels from Madrid to Salamanca

      by Travel2012 Online Now Mar 12, 2012 at 6:34 PM

      I plan to travel to Salamanca from Madrid, hopefully by train. Do you suggest that I purchase the train ticket in advance or can I just purchase it at the station? Also, where can I find a train schedule (departures from Madrid to Salamanca and vice versa for the return)?

      I am a US citizen; I have read that the Reenfe.es site is a mess (not what it appears to be), so it was recommended that I book my ticket online at rail europe. Again, I would rather just buy my ticket at the station, if I can ??

      Also, not sure if the train runs a regular schedule on Sundays, as that is my return (from Salamanca back to Madrid). If not the train, then should I review bus options for the return?
