Hola Peregrinos! I’m walking CF from SJPdP in mid-April. A buddy wants to join me at Sarria to walk the last 100KM to Santiago. He’s flying from Orlando, Florida. Can you recommend the best city for him to fly into and mode of ground transport to Sarria? Thanks!

There would be many options on how to handle this.
Direct flights from the US, best I know, only go into Madrid and Barcelona....or Lisbon and perhaps Porto in Portugal. From Madrid you could fly into Santiago and take bus (or maybe train) to Sarria. However, it would be less complicated to fly into Madrid and take train directly to Sarria - 6 to 12 hours depending on the train. He could take bus as well, but train would probably be more relaxing - if he decides to take train, I believe that tickets can't be bought prior to 60 days before the trip, but I would recommend booking them before going to Spain.

Rome2rio.com is your friend. It will help look at a variety of options from Orlando to Sarria.

Madrid, flight to Santiago, bus from the airport to Lugo, bus from Lugo to Sarria. Several hundred variations are available. Timing is everything. Do you know when you’ll get to Sarria?
I should arrive Sarria 14 May, rendezvous with buddy and press on morning of 15 May.

Good luck with that. I’ve never, in 4 attempts, been closer than +/- 3 days on my eta into Santiago. I got to Villafranca del Bierzo 3 days before my wife once. Great town to waste some time in 😉. Late to meet an amigo in Lugo I walked Borres to Grandas in one day and night and cursed him every kilometer.
I think I’m just saying be prepared for that plan to go awry. But then Sarria isn’t a bad town to have to hang out in for either of you.
Buen Camino

Thanks, understood. I guess flexibility is the key. BC, Mike
