After spending the past year and a half mourning the untimely passing of the beautiful Empress Kate (see my avatar), My Walking Partner cum Master of Distractions suddenly announces that he has purchased tickets to Spain for a fall Camino. My mind springs into overdrive since everything Camino has been in the far background; loose 10 lbs, buy new hiking pants, how to buy train tickets, research SIM cards. Oops (insert benign palabrota), I forgot the details of how to buy a train ticket from Madrid to Zaragosa! Small things change every year, so my specific questions are needing the most current information! 1. To buy a RENFE ticket online from the US, should I use the RENFE or another website? Pay with credit card or PayPal? 2. how to order a Vodafone or Orange SIM card, have it sent to me in the US and activate it upon arriving in Madrid? 3. Móvil: I remember that after 28 days of use, one had to pay the monthly fee (top up/recargar) at any number of convenient places. I was given a phone number to call to "renovar beneficios". At appears that all of that can now be accomplished online. Yes, how? Happy planning my dear Camino family!
