      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.

      Taxi's Scam in Madrid/ Demonstrations?

      2) How does a taxi ride to the Airport Barajas work? Is there a fixed fare? How much does it cost?

      by YousefM Online Now Jul 9, 2016 at 6:36 PM

      Hi everyone,
      I recently booked a ticket from Tel-Aviv, Israel to Funchal,Madeira, with a connection at Madrid barajas.
      I booked the ticket via a travel agency and the operating airline is Iberia , however, i'm a little concerned about the transfer time from terminal 4 to 4S- my flight lands in Madrid at 10:40 at terminal 4, then the flight to Funchal,Madeira departs at 11:35 at terminal 4s, totalling about one hour between touch down and take off, a timeframe within which I have to get from the plane to the departure gate.
      I've done my homework and read about the underground 5 minute train, but ideally I'd really like to have an account of someone who's faced the same transfer; is it possible in one hour ? I'd just like to know it this is a /possible/ amount of time, so as to know if I should get a train down instead, i dont know any thing about barajas and how it goes
      I'd be very grateful for any information anyone can bring to the matter.
      Thanks to all who read :)

      We will be in Madrid for 3 nights late August, Wednesday-Saturday after finishing up our trip from La Manga. We are staying in a Barrio Salamanca hotel. We don't mind hopping on the train/uber/taxi but we are not looking for long distance trips outside of Madrid. We really want to be with the locals and away from tourist traps. If you'd like to share your favorite attractions and places to eat----we would love to hear. I'm not really sure how to classify our budget since we aren't sure of the economy in Madrid--we don't mind paying for good food/drink but aren't looking for fancy places. Local, casual hangouts. We normally spend about $30-$35 (US Dollars) for lunch and double that for dinner--depending on our mood/taste buds---we can more or less too if the place is worth it.

      I´m going to Madrid in mid April and it´s my first visit in the city. Going to be there for 40h to see the Champions League game between Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona!

      I will arrive tuesday afternoon so I will also try to get a ticket to Real Madrid vs. Wolfsburg.

      Now I have a couple of questions :-)

      • If I don´t get any ticket to the Real game. Where do you recommend me to see the game?
      • Any nice bar, rooftop bar or tapas bar to recommend? I´m a vegetarian so not a place with only meat ;-)

      As I said, I will only be in Madrid for 40h, so I don´t need plenty of places. Just one or two good recommendations.
