    • 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 Yesterday


      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.

    • Cruise Ship on a Sunday

      by lud016 Online Now Jun 20, 2015 at 12:13 AM

      We will be on a cruise ship and making two stops into Vigo port.
      One stop is on a Thursday (17/9), our second call will be on a Sunday (4/10).
      In trying to plan our day we will probably take a tour on one of the stops (Vigo, Bayonna & Galician coastline). The second stop we "will wander" around Vigo.
      Considering a cruise ship is in port will everything be open on a Sunday or should we make our "free" day in Vigo on the Thursday.

      Porto to Vigo

      by Elgreco77 Online Now Feb 6, 2014 at 2:08 AM

      We arrive in Porto in early June and stay 2 nights there before taking the train to Vigo and then Santiago. We understand that we can't prebook the train. We would like to be absolutely certain of catching it as it's essential to our plans. We will have a spare day before we catch it and can go and book then. Does the train tend to get full? We are both senior citizens and want to purchase tarjetas doradas on arrival. Can we purchase them in Porto or just in Spain?
      Finally, we have 3 nights in Santiago and 3 in La Coruna, we plan to hire a car there and visit some of the more remote places. We then have 3 more nights before returning to Porto. I'm torn between Pontevedra or Vigo, or both. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

      I'm going to have to travel from Vigo to Porto in three weeks' time. I've looked at the options and would appreciate some advice. It seems one option is the take an Autna bus from Estacion Autobuses, and there are several departurues each day - presumably no need to book ahead. The other option is to take the international train, which runs twice a day. There are details and prices the Portuguese railways web site on but I can't find a way to book it, and I'm not even sure it's possible to take this as a Vigo-Porto single journey, as it's advertised as a day trip to Vigo. I can't find any reference on the Spanish railways site to these trains atall. Can anyone help?
      And having said that, would I be better spending more time in Porto and not bothering to spend half a day in Vigo? I will have four days in Porto.
