    Hi Folks, I've only ever used trains or local buses in Spain so stupid question... What do you do with luggage on ALSA buses? Do you need to check it or get a sticker/label like you do in some countries or is it like the UK and you just turn up at the bus and sling it in the hold underneath...

    Possible daft question... Walking to Asturias Airport from Oviedo?

    Hi All, looking at my schedule I might have a day in hand at the end of the Salvador.

It looks...
