      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 :)

      San Fermines - doing it alone

      by Nijntje1973 Online Now Jan 29, 2013 at 3:19 PM

      Hi all,

      I am planning to travel from Valladolid on a Saturday morning (6 Jul) or evening Friday night (5 Jul) to catch San Fermines. Is it possible to do it alone? I have no interest to run with the others but I would like to watch from a balcony or inside the venue (sorry don't know how to call it) and enjoy the party atmosphere. There are many tours from London but I really want to mix with the local instead of 30 tourists in a group. Is there anywhere I could find out the travel arrangements/accommodation in a local point of view?

      Hope that makes sense. I haven't got a concrete plan yet but it seems too good to miss while I'm nearby!

      Many thanks!

      by Derville Online Now Jul 27, 2011 at 3:13 PM

      Hi, we (2 people) need to get from Pamplona to Biarritz for flight on Sunday afternoon 14th August. I can't find direct bus transport but at this stage we are willing to stay over in another town or city on Saturday night if we can get confirmation of how to best arrive in Biarritz for our flight. We looked at the option of hiring a car but its too expensive we are willing to pay for a taxi if needs be, but we need to know if its reliable. Our perference is to take a bus/train but we're not making a lot of progress so far in solving this one.

      I hope somebody living locally has some advice for us. Unfortunatley we only speak English so it puts us at a disadvantage.

      thanks, Derville

    • Pams accomm and lockers

      by sumshiftyguy Online Now Mar 30, 2011 at 10:36 AM

      Myself and a mate are hoping to travel to Pamps fro July 7-11 2011. We are very keen to go but don't want to break the bank for the sake of a few days. Flights are reasonable enough but the accommodation is already very limited with our only real option being to stay out of the way in San Sebastien at a surf camp paying almost £50 per person for a 2man tent!

      I've read on here that a lot of people opt to just sleep in the park??? If this is the case, how easy is it to get a locker/wash/etc? We'd be happy to go down this route but just want to be sure of the 'small print' as it were before we commit to buying tickets, etc.

      Thanks all!

      Hi guys,

      i am travelling from barcelona to pamplona for the bullrun festival. I know that staying at pamplona will be very expensive and so am looking at staying somewhere nearby. I was told that San Sebastian will be the best place to stay but after pamplona, i am heading south to Madrid.not too sure if san sebastian (north) is the best place to stay.

      Public transportation and the festival

      by midnight_mike Online Now Apr 30, 2009 at 11:03 PM

      I will be in Spain during the time of the festival and want to go. I already bought my tickets. I have a few questions. Do I need to buy bus tickets in advance? I would likely be taking a bus from Madrid and only stay about 30 hours. Second, how much would it cost to purchase a semi-decent seat for the bullfights? Third, is it hard to get a good spot to see the running of the bulls? Fourth, as someone who is fascinated by the festival and the art of bullfighting, are the large crowds tolerable? What I mean is, on a scale of 1 to 10 how annoying are the crowds? Is it as bad as Mardi Gras in New Orleans? Lastly, this has nothing to do with Pamplona, but is it true that there are no bullfights in Seville in July? What about Malaga? It was mentioned on, but I'm not going to necessarily take that as the word of God.

      Options for running of the bulls festival

      by midnight_mike Online Now Apr 17, 2009 at 10:33 AM

      I've check the prices of staying in Pamplona during the running of the bulls festival in July and they're way too expensive. I remember watching a Globetrekker video in which the host actually slept in a van on night. My question is whether there are any options for staying in Pamplona for one or two nights during the festival under200. In addition, I want to know what the policy is on sleeping in a park in Pamplona. Also, I'm curious if anyone has just arrived in Pamplona early one morning, did not sleep that night and then left the next day. Also, are the trains exteremely hard to book at that time?

      I'm debating my summer travel plans and this would only be a small part of a larger trip, so I'm not interested in spending1,000 to say that I was in Pamplona for two days. Also, if anyone can direct me to another worthwhile festival in Spain in early July. Actually, I just want to see a bullfight, although just spending 30 hours in Pamplona would be a neat experience.
