Hello. I am trying to plot a route from Paris to Logrono for my daughter and her friend, who are traveling to Logrono for a semester abroad. I will be with them for a week before their classes start, touring in England and France, but they will be traveling from Paris to Logrono on their own. They have Eurail passes from France to Spain that I have already purchased.
I am having the hardest time figuring out how to get them to Logrono! I've now submitted three different reservation requests with the Eurail site. The third one has them on a night train, but for "technical reasons" they have to get off the train in Cerbere, France, find a bus to Port-bou, and then get back on the train.
I've emailed the reservation center back again, but I thought I would also appeal to this forum. Anyone else needed to travel from Paris to Barcelona via train? (the train from Barcelona to Logrono needs a reservation but doesn't have any difficulties). I am fairly nervous about them finding a bus in Cerbere, which seems to be a tiny border town, and then getting from the bus station in Port-bou to the train station. This is their first time traveling in Europe. (I probably sound like an anxious mother...but that's OK. I am. I am hoping this trip can be successful so they enjoy their time.)
Alternately, I might just get desperate enough to pay to fly them from Paris to Barcelona, but since i already paid for the train pass I am really hoping I don't have to do that.
Anyone have any experience with this?
