    1 Hr time between flights doable in Madrid?

    I've been thru the Madrid airport 3 times and don't think one hour between connecting flights is really doable. Large airport, varied terminals, immigration ... you'd be really lucky to make that connection.

    Rates albergue?

    What do you have to take every Camino?

    an S hook - hang my backpack, my dry cloths on the shower door (there is never more than one) and a muslin baby receiving blanket (best lightweight towel, dries in a flash) - borrowed it from my grandson - he's not getting it back after three Caminos

    I remember this well ... my legs were jelly by the time I got to the town. So tired I walked into the first place that offered a bed and once booked in, slept for 4 hours. Then a shower and dinner. If I'd walked another 500m - there is that lovely albergue. But I didn't care !
