    Pre-book or risk it?

    My husband and I have our travel plans booked to Biarritz, as well as a flight home from Madrid. Do people suggest pre-booking travel from Biarritz to SJPDP, as well as travel from Santiago to Madrid (we were looking at flights but how variable are those in price and availability?)

    Belorado to Dublin

    Hi All, I'm walking part of the Camino in May and am finding it difficult to figure out where to fly back to Dublin from! I don't want to run out of time on the walk so was planning on leaving from Belorado - but could go one stage before or after if that's easier. Has anyone flown back from...

    Ryanair flash sale 30th March only

    Ryanair are getting on the Brexit branding bandwagon by having a flash sale today until midnight. Be aware that they fly mainly out of London Stansted which is a horrible connection from London Heathrow.

    Recommendations for the best way to get from Santiago to Madrid?

    I hope I'm posting this in the right place ;) I will be traveling to Madrid on the day I plan to arrive in Santiago. What is the best way to get there? Train? Flight? Should I book in advance or can I book a couple of days before I get there? Thanks!

    Buying equipment at SJPP

    As I can't bring a swiss army knife or scissors in my Hand Luggage on the flight, can I buy said equipments at SJPP? I got my army knife from my father, so I am not an expert in selecting original swiss army knives and not copies. Any recommendation on this topic?

Every time Iberia makes a change I have to coordinate...

    Round-trip or One-way airfare?

    Hello everyone, I am in a debate with myself about buying airfare roundtrip or one way. I'm concerned that having a deadline could mentally throw me off while doing my pilgrimage, also price can be a factor by doubling. My trip will be starting in September 2016. I am currently planning on...
