      Pyrenees in october

      Pyrenees Oct 4, 2016 at 2:40 PM

      Next week I'll be heading to spain for a hiking trip. were planing to hike a 5 days trek on the gr 11 trail . I don't have much experience with hiking this time of the year, so perhaps some people here can help me answer some of the following questions:

      - Are the winter rooms in the huts open? how do i contact the operators?
      - If so, what is provided in the winter rooms (matress, blankets?) and what is the procedure? Do I need to get a key, where and how do I need to pay? is there a fireplace or a posibilty of lighting fire inside the huts?
      - Does anybody know about the current conditions? Is there already a lot of snow (compared to other years)? What is a good place on the web to find out about local conditions?

      Any further general tips from experienced people are always welcome. Many thanks in advance!

    • Overstaying 90 day Schengen stay limit

      Barcelona Sep 26, 2016 at 7:44 AM

      I am from the US and am studying abroad in Barcelona for 87 days. There is no way for me to get a student visa, and my program director can't extend my trip by 3 days in order for me to get a visa. I my family is planning on meeting me in Barcelona on my 87th day and we are planning to go to Italy on my 89th or 90th day. We are planning on staying in Italy for about 10 days, staying in only Italy for those 10 days, and then flying back to the US from Italy. If I get caught overstaying my 90 day limit, what are the consequences? Has anyone ever dealt with a situation like this? Would it be smarter to just meet my family in Italy rather than have them meet me in Spain (saving money and already be in Italy before I reach my 90 day limit). Thank you! Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    • Problem with the route

      Palencia Apr 21, 2015 at 12:53 PM

      Hi everyone,
      I live in Izmir Turkey, and I'll go to Palencia in May for a week. I learned the nearest airport is Valladolid airport. I didn't find a direct flight. The travel company offered me two alternatives. 1) Istanbul to Madrid with Iberia Airlines and then using bus shuttle Madrid to Valladolid (Iberia Airlines providing bus shuttle). It seems rather good, however the arriving times is bit late. I'll be in Valladolid about 2 a.m, and I've never been in Spain. I don't know how can I find a transportation to Palencia at that late hour, I probably should stay at a hotel.
      Second is Izmir to Istanbul, Istanbul to Bilboa with Turkish airlines. The company warned me Bilbao is about two and half an hour away from Valladolid, but the arriving time better than the first. I'll be in Bilboa at 1600 (four pm in the afternoon). The problem is I don't know how can I go to Palencia from Bilbao.
      So my question is which route is good? If second is, how can I reach Palencia from Bilbao.
      Thanks in advance.

      I did get most info from previously posted Qs here, very helpful, as always. Still need you to specify - one post stated that BUS is cheaper, more scenic and easy to get to the center. 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.
