      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.

      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.

    • Travels from Madrid to Salamanca

      by Travel2012 Online Now Mar 12, 2012 at 6:34 PM

      I plan to travel to Salamanca from Madrid, hopefully by train. Do you suggest that I purchase the train ticket in advance or can I just purchase it at the station? Also, where can I find a train schedule (departures from Madrid to Salamanca and vice versa for the return)?

      I am a US citizen; I have read that the site is a mess (not what it appears to be), so it was recommended that I book my ticket online at rail europe. Again, I would rather just buy my ticket at the station, if I can ??

      Also, not sure if the train runs a regular schedule on Sundays, as that is my return (from Salamanca back to Madrid). If not the train, then should I review bus options for the return?

      my question is if there is a bus or train which ll be able to bring us from Salamanca to Celorico da Beira? and how much time will it take?
