    Madrid Barajas Layover on Way to Porto

    Thanks so much for your reply, Jill. I bet trying to return in time with a five hour layover would be a stretch. And I'm definitely concerned even with seven hours, especially when I don't know what the exit and return procedures will be. A lot is unknown about that time in between. There must...

    Spanish Language School?

    Hi, @trecile, are you back now from your Guatemala Spanish classes? I may be in Guatemala this coming summer before I return to the Camino and maybe I will add a Spanish class to my journey there instead of in Spain, as I originally planned. I would love to hear about your experience...

    Spanish Immersion and the Camino

    Buen Camino, @Desert Bruce. I hope you find a class to take that fits with your volunteer time. That’s the challenge I’m finding, to take a language class, walk and volunteer in that order. Good luck. Ultreia, Irene

    Spanish Immersion and the Camino

    Hi @Lizanne801. Thank you for your reply. The Pyrenees Experience was one of my choices, but the timing isn’t good for me. I hope it works for you. I may try the Responsible Travel for a beginner class and some walking on the Norte. I’m also planning to apply to work in the Pilgrim Office in...
