    What’s the weather forecast

    Is it warm enough to layer under my poncho and leave the puffy coat at home? The forecast I'm seeing is 39 (3.8 C) degrees and rain when I walk out of SJPDP.

    Cotton blend socks

    We fly out in 4 days. I’ve tried major branded socks, three brands, and can’t wear wool. It feels hot and makes my feet hurt for three or four days after. Walking in cotton blend toe socks.. I must be allergic to the wool.

    Question about Alsa bus tickets

    I was trying to buy an Alsa bus ticket on-line to take us from Pamplona to SJPDP. It ask for a "document" and document number? Passport isn't mentioned and it wont let me make a purchase without completing that portion. Can I just walk up and buy two tickets when we land in Pamplona?

    Terminal switch in Madrid

    I just got a note that I'll be switching terminals in Madrid for the last leg to Pamplona. If everything is on time I'll have one hour and fifty minutes to make this happen. Seems like a tight schedule to me, given how often flights aren't on time. Anyone here ever switch terminals in Madrid...

    Getting to SJPDP

    I thought about that but, the reason we’re taking the carry on bag is to give us flexibility in the start and at the end. Walking poles and a Swiss Army knife with corkscrew will be in the check bag. Along with a clean change of clothes for when we get to Santiago. Seems best to bring it to...

    Partially unplugging from the world

    I am wondering how you disconnect, in part, from the world. I have a couple of reasons that I need to be accessible but, I don't want to be constantly connected on this journey. Ideas?
