Hi, I'm planning to walk camino de santiago 2weeks later.
First, I arrive in Madrid, sightseeing for a couple of days.
(I think it'll be helpful for my adaption to a new time zone.)
My actual walking journey will be from Ponferrada.
However, I want to visit Burgos and Leon before the journey.
Are there frequent bus schedules on routes :
Madrid - Burgos / Burgos - Leon / Leon - Ponferrada

Also I wonder if there is any bus going directly to Barcelona from Santiago.

I really appreciate you for much information. Without these, I could not have been able to decide whether I will take the journey or not.

Thanks always.
