Hi Dawn,

It does not look like there is a night train that day. There is a night bus though (an also there are other buses during the day):

SANTIAGO COMPOSTELA - MADRID EST.SUR, 29/10/2008
SANTIAGO C MADR-E.SUR 21:30 06:30 41,44€
http://www.alsa.es

...but the night train is more comfortable (I have taken both), and 9 hours is quite slow for the bus. Do you not want to take the plane? Price wise they can be equally cheap... and they take one hour.. but then you need one more night of hotel.

But it is an alternative if you are looking to save one night in a hotel.

Saludos,
Ivar

Thanks Ivar, i have checked Spainair the cheapest flight is 115E, Iberia is 148E. Perhaps the price goes down closer to the date.???? Transport will depend on how many days it takes me to walk the via de la plata. I have been to Santiago , twice before, a great place to hang around, better yet, the best place to get a hair cut, which is on my to do list before i go home!!!!!!

Hmm... no, not really. I guess since Vueling stopped flying Santiago - Madrid things have gotten more expensive... :-(

Buen camino,
Ivar

Santiago Haircut?

Dawn of a New Day said she gets her hair cut at the end of her hikes at a great place in Santiago.

Please share the information! A good haircut is hard to find, and what better time to get yourself back to pretty again, after a long trek?

Hi Rebekah, i would recommend this place. Not in the TOURISTY area. I think i paid 13Cdn. or about 8E for the full MEAL DEAL, wash, blowdry and style. i think for a cut was about $6. I am sure prices have gone up, but here in Victoria, a minimum of $40. I was smart if i do say so, as i kept their business card, I went to
Salon De Peluqueria
cabina de Belleza.
C/Horreo, 51 bajo
tel.981 58 43 27

The other address on the card is Area Central
Local L22-D Planta Baja
tel 981-57 11 01

Ivar is it the first or second address that is near the main road at the bottom of rua vilar.

Anyway I saw Carmen if she is still there. Of course they speak no english, so if you don't have spanish, get something written before you go.

Hi Dawn, think the reason the RENFE website is not listing the TrenHotel on 29 or 30 October is due to them not selling tickets online more than 60 days in advance. The train is showing up on the DB Bahn international website for those days so, if you can, check RENFE again in a few days time. If nothing shows up then, try getting tickets through a company such as RailEurope.

Calle Horreo (C/Horreo) is the street that goes down from old town towards the train station. My guess this would be about a 5 minute walk from old town.

The other address at Area Central is about a 20-30 minute walk from old town in the Area Central mall. Calle Horreo is much easier to find.

Saludos,
Ivar
