      transfer from cruise terminal to hotel

      Barcelona Feb 1, 2017 at 6:51 AM

      A friend and I are coming to Barcelona and needing to get transportation from cruise terminal to hotel. I need to know of any transfer companies in Barcelona and also any recommendations for nice but not too expensive hotels that are centrally located. Also will be in Barcelona for 3 days, so would like recommendations for shopping. Thanks for the info.

      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

    • day out in Alpujarras on the bus

      by MelPotter Online Now Jul 7, 2008 at 2:19 PM

      Any ideas for where to go on the bus as a day trip from Granada? I'm going the first week in September, so it'll be very hot, but would like to do a shortish circular walk in this region, although have to rely on public transport.

      Any ideas or tips gratefully received!

      How to get there

      by aimlesslady Online Now Mar 17, 2005 at 1:05 PM

      Hi everyone!

      I will be travelling to spain in May and I definiltey want to stop in the Alpujarras. Do you all think that a day trip will be enough? Also, are there any buses that can take us there from Granada. What do you all think would be the best way to get there?

      Thank you all for your help. I'm trying to finalize my trip to Europe and I need this information before I book my hotel in Granada. Thanks again for your time!

      Happy Travels

    • driving alone in Spain

      by LightPanther Online Now May 31, 2004 at 4:09 PM

      Hi there I (male) was thinking about hiring a small camper or motorhome and spending a fortnight or so looking at different regions in Spain. But I have some concerns:- It sounds like a great idea, but on the other hand, I have never been to Spain before, don't speak Spanish ("solo un poco!"), never dirven a left had vehicle before etc. Do you think this is a wise idea, or am I biting off more than I can chew? Would I be allowed to park such a vehicle in small villages or rural locations just at the side of the road? (wouldn't particularly want to tour campsites) Most important, would it e safe to do that? And would the police be ok with it? I would also be grateful if anyone knows any surprise trip-ups (such as petrol pumps that only accept credit cards, that kind of thing). I should say that my reason for travelling is to sound out regions with a view to a possible place to live. The alternative is to go on an organised coach tour, which obviously eliminates some of the above concerns, but on the other hand tends to concentrate on Big Cities, Museums etc. What do you recommend? What do you think? Is a foreigner likely to be safe enough driving around Spain like this? (mainly small town / rural, but not exclusively). Please do reply and in advance many thanks (muchas gracias) :) Mark
