    CDG Time between Flights

    So my original plan was to fly into CDG and take a train to SJPDP. I only have 21 days total to walk, and after thinking it over I have decided my best approach is most likely to start in Burgos instead of SJPDP and then trying to figure out where to transfer ahead. Seems much easier to just...
