    I did the “Canada and the Rockies” trip last July. It was great. Perfect weather, fun activities(optionals), and met great people from all over the world. Only wish I could have stayed more days in Vancouver. Yes, I am from Texas (Houston). I can’t wait for Spain.

    Hi all I’m also doing the June 13 Spanish spree and look forward to meeting you all I’m also travelling solo flying in a day early how user you getting from the airport to the hotel I’m not sure if taxi or public transport is better

  • 13 Apr 2011 Ramiro M said


    Don’t know what time your flights get in, but I am considering going on the Metro (subway). There is a station at the airport and a station (Chamartin) basically across from the hotel (Tryp Centro Norte, I believe). You just have to transfer a subway line or two to get to the Chamartin station. Of course if it was night time (safety-wise) or bad weather, etc I might consider a taxi. The downside is the address to the hotel is rather goofy. If you map it on Google Earth or other mapping software it wont give you the real position of the hotel (about two blocks over). The hotel is on some sort of stub street. From some reviews I read online, it might be easier asking a taxi to take you to the Chamartin station(bottom/street level) than giving the hotel address.

    i arive at 4:30 in the afternoon on the 12th i wonder what the traffic would be like around that time peakhour traffic might be better off catching the train

    thanks ramiro ill look into the subway option

    Guys are any of you on facebook ? befriend me :P nadia gerber from nelspruit, mpumalanga (south africa). i only arrive on the morning of the 13th (flying in from london) which is a bit tight, but from what i gather from the itinerary we only meet at night so should be fiiiiiiiiine!
