      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'm thinking of doing 3 nights in Salamanca and 2 in Segovia. I'll fly in and out of Madrid. From what I can see I can take the Avanzabus from Barajas to Salamanca and then on to Segovia. Then train no Madrid. I'd do 1 night in Madrid so I can catch a fairly early morning flight out. Does this seem like enough time in Salamanca and Segovia, I've been to Madrid a few times. Also, I'm looking between the Hotel Goya and Hostal Sara in Salamanca and Hotel Condes de Castilla and Sercotel Infanta Isabel in Segovia. Any thought on thses hotels?

      I have to make a decision on where to spend the last night in Spain on our trip in April. We fly out of Barajas.

      I have been told that Segovia is lovely at night and I thought it might be fun to spend the night there rather than Madrid and travel from Segovia to Barajas to catch my 1:10 pm flight home.

      Can any of you wise advisors give me an idea of how long the AVE to Chamartin, the metro to Barajas would take from Segovia? This is on a Sunday morning. From what I read it seems like about 90 minutes travel time.

      Is this a crazy idea or a really clever plan?

      Bus Madrid - Segovia - LaGranja San Ildefonso - Bus turístico de Segovia

      by mmsalves Online Now Sep 2, 2007 at 2:30 AM

      I will come from Madrid to Segovia on 11 September and I want to visit also San Ildefonso La Granja.
      Here I can see this
      By bus: The La Sepulvedana bus line has a route direct from Madrid to Segovia between 6:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. The buses run every half hour and trip takes about 75 minutes (6€). The buses depart from the Méndez Álvaro Station (Metro Méndez Álvaro). La Sepulvedana also has buses from Segovia to La Granja de San Ildefonso.
      I can’t access the site of Sepulvedana (the English version is not functioning yet, neither some parts off the Spanish version, incluing routes/timetables.). and I have no answer to my e-mail , asking for timetables.

      So I will be grateful to somebody who can tell me about a bus leaving Madrid near 8: 00 a.m with link to La Granja.

      Where I can buy the tickets for the “ bus turístico de Segovia” ? Is it an Hop On Hop Off Bus like at Madrid or Barcelona?
