    When travelling on Renfe trains in Spain with a larger backpack (45 liters), is it required to "check" the pack or can the pack travel with you in the railcar?

    What special item does the veteran peregrino ship ahead to have waiting for them in Santiago? I get the fresh set of clean clothes suitable for dinner in a nice restaurant and comfortable for the ride home. Are there other things you wished you'd thought of at the end of your first Camino...

    A couple of questions.....

    When walking in Spain, I always send a box or small suitcase on to Ivar when I arrive in Spain. This is for "after Camino" clothes as we usually hang around Europe for a bit after arriving in Santiago. Does anyone have experience or a suggestion as to how this would be handled in Rome? I am...

    Has anyone found a hotel in Madrid that will hold their luggage while on the Camino

    I'm thinking that I will probably spend a night or two in Madrid before heading out for the Camino, then a a few nights afterwards. I'd like to be able to leave a suitcase in Madrid, rather than mailing it to Santiago. Does anyone have a hotel/pension to recommend for this?
