      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.

    • Where should I stay?

      La Rioja Mar 25, 2009 at 10:16 AM

      I need to be in Logrono for a couple of days in mid May. I'm not sure that I want to stay in a hotel in Logrono since it seems like such a small town. I'm debating between staying in Pamplona, San Sebastian or Madrid.

      How far is Logrono from each of these places (I'll have a car) and would you recommend one over the other? And what's the beach/weather like in San Sebastian in May?

      Thanks in advance!
