    Fares from SCQ to Paris CDG...and flight schedules

    I wondered if anyone has mastered the Santiago flights, what is a good deal, possibly when to find them, or a route that I might not have even thought of. For two Caminos it was just me flying from Santiago to Paris so I didn't pay attention to the cost. My children and I need to be at CDG on...

    To those that have either done this or know the train system way better than I do (which would be the majority)... this site seems to imply there are two different transactions for Lisbon-Tunes and Tunes-Lagos that total about 50 Euros. It does imply that there is "now" away to purchase both at...
