Train Strike in France!


Staff member
I just got news of this today, two pilgrims from Colorado wanted to buy a ticket from Santiago to Paris on the train this morning was not recommended to do so at the train station. Later I had a Dutch pilgrim stop by my office, buying a bus ticket to Holland... he had already gotten his train ticket, and was going to try to get his money back from RENFE.

From the http://www.sncf.com/ (French Train Service) it looks like the strike is from today until Wednesday.

Du lundi 25 mai à 20h
au mercredi 27 mai à 8h :
En raison d'un mouvement de grève interprofessionnelle et nationale, le trafic des trains sera perturbé.

Greetings from a rainy Santiago,

Hahah! This was like deja vu!
Same thing happened to us.
We were leaving Carcasonne and needed to get to the coast to take a ferry (already booked) to Ireland.

We managed to hook up with another pair of stranded travelers and together we booked a taxi.
It was gREAT!

We learned a lot about being flexible, but I have to admit, it's a
SHOCK to walk into a train station ready to go and have them say . . . sorry! roflol!
