This will prove what an unsophisticated phone user I really am. I have been purchasing various tickets along the way on my phone, but many of them need to be printed out to be used. Only a few have the QR code where it can be scanned on your phone and the instructions actually say to print them.

Although when I was younger and in the Army, I used to carry a portable printer with me to schools and on assignments, on the Camino, I have traded that in for a portable CPAP. Not helpful with printing, but useful to prevent snoring.

Today I had 4 emails worth of train and bus tickets for our various travels this week. In San Sabastian, I went to Gros Kopistegia (General Artetxe 6) in the Gros district. I rehearsed what I needed to ask, but when I stepped in the door, the clerk said in Castellon "Do you need me to print tickets?" as if she could read my mind. She further pointed to the email posted on the wall and instructed me to forward the emails and attachments and for 2.60 euros. I quickly walked away with tickets for four different trips for the both of us in.

Something simple at home can also be simple here if the town is big enough and has a copy shop. My backup plan was to go to the library and print, but it was further away.

Good advice. Libraries would be my go to option but they are not always there when you need them, my guess is most medium sized hotels would have the equipment to help you out and a small tip of a few euros would grease the wheels

Are the trains to Madrid from Santiago usually very crowded on a Monday in mid-October? Is it necessary to prebook train tickets well in advance? Thanks!
I plan to take the bus from The Parador in Santiago to Sarria Oct 7. Where is the closest stop to pick up the bus? So I need to purchase my ticket in advance to be assured of a seat?
Hi. I have connected in Madrid on many occasions on an outbound flight. So I am pretty familiar with how much time is needed. But in October I will fly from Vigo and connect in Madrid for a...
