Camino Frances in November

Hi,
I'm planning to walk the Camino Frances, setting off at the very beginning of November/last days of October. I'm a female travelling alone and wanted to check: is this a sensible time to walk? Are there extra things - other than wet and cold weather gear - I should bring? How many people walk at this time of year (appreciate it won't be the crowds of summer, but am hoping to meet other walkers on the route). If it is a daft idea then I could walk in the spring instead, but it's so rare to be…

Does anyone know any good value stores for mens' shoes in Madrid ?
Not looking for anything fancy or any specific brands, just some simple sturdy leather shoes for everyday use. Preferably not too far from the center / metro stops.

Stay in Bilbao v stay in San Sebastian?

I will be flying into Bilbao airport very late on a Sunday night in October, flying out for Madrid late that Wednesday afternoon. I want to explore both Bilbao and San Sebastian, but what makes most sense as a home base? If I stayed in Bilbao, spent all day Monday and half the day Wednesday there, with a daytrip to SS on Tuesday, is that a decent itinerary? Given its relative proximity to the airport, Bilbao seems like the most practical choice, but I don't know if there's enough to see in…

Save money on audio guides!

Hi,

I was travelling in Spain recently and thought I'd share this money-saving tip. At most places with an audio guide, if you carry an extra set of headphones and a splitter, two people can share an audio guide. We ended up saving a fair bit of money this way!

Transfer times at Barcelona airport

Arrive at Barcelona airport 08.30 on internal flight from Seville; leave on international flight 11.00 (check-in from 09.00). Is this too tight? I will have to do an earlier internal flight if so. Thanks for any guidance you can offer.

Last minute trip to Spain in October - 9 days of travel that avoids the rain?

I find myself having the pleasant dilemma of planning a last-minute trip to Spain in the second half of October. I've already been to Madrid, Sevilla, and Barcelona, and am trying to figure out new places to go where the weather will probably be dry. I'm traveling solo and want to be able to rely on public transportation; also, I don't like switching hotels every night or two, but would rather have 2-3 bases of operation over a 9 day span from which to explore towns and do day trips. I'd…
