    €5 tickets for Spain’s new low-cost rail service to go on sale on Monday

    Boston, USA to Paris or Madrid?

    I flew into Madrid in 2017 from Phoenix (via Dulles). As the flight arrived early in the morning, there was plenty of time to take the metro to Atocha to catch a late morning train to Pamplona. We rested up in Pamplona and took the bus to SJPP the next morning. A piece o' cake....

    Places to stay in Olveiroa (Muxia to Santiago route)

    We stayed at Casa Loncho last June and loved it. Good food at the bar/restaurant. Comfy room. It is right on the Camino. Highly recommend.

    Lisbon or Porto

    Hi David, You can look at the website www.cp.pt/passageiros/en [Comboios de Portugal] for a schedule. As I recall there are trains at least every 2 hours. BC Charlotte

    Not 100% certain but it looks like it might be the Giralda in Seville.

    Live - Camino Portugues New signs on the CP

    Hello all, I thought I would pass on that new waymarkers are being placed on the CP. We first saw these friendly guys a few days ago and saw them again today just outside Golegã. Expect for walking out of Lisbon, the signage has been abundant and easy to follow.

    Where to take rest days

    Ditto that. I wish I had spent more time there--next Camino!

    who knew it would cost so much!

    Try the Jetradar app. Keep checking the fares over the coming months...you might end up with something more reasonable. I used it when my daughter and I went to Europe last summer...it saved us about $500/person.

    Newbie with some basic questions

    Forget the jeans.....too heavy, take too long to dry after washing. You are better off with the hiking pants. I assume they have zip off legs? Also a fleece isn't as heavy as a sweater so would recommend taking a fleece instead. BC

    Accomodation San Juan De Ortega

    We stayed at HR La Henera. It was wonderful and not too expensive. As I recall the two brothers who run the bar also run the HR (I think we checked in with them at the bar). As already stated above they are friendly and helpful, and we had a superb meal at their bar. They were also the ones who...
