    • 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?)

      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.

    • Good place to start on a walk

      by cathy9510usa Online Now Jun 4, 2014 at 12:53 PM

      We are two retired women, and because of constraints with time and agility, we can't do a major walk along the Pilgrim Ways. We're thinking of flying to Compostela and then taking public transportation to one of the last stops along the way and then walking the rest of the way to the cathedral. We would not be able to do any strenuous climbs.

      Can anyone suggest a good place to start our walk, which can be reached by public transportation?

      Thanks very much.

      In September we'll make a road trip from Toulouse to Santiago de Compostela, driving roughly along the Camino Aragonés / Camino Francés (Pamplona – Logroño – Burgos – Leon etc).
      Now the question is, how shall we return to Toulouse. We'll probably be fed up with architectural masterpieces. We'll rather be looking for the most beautiful natural scenery.
      Could anybody suggest a route to take?
