    COVID Covid Testing on a FRIDAY afternoon or later in Santiago dC.

    The answer is "it's incredibly difficult". But, the best that I found is the HM hospital. They can book an appointment for a rapid antigen COVID test for a friday at 16:00.. They do not perform COVID tests on weekends. The results are in Spanish and English and the cost is 40€. If one wants...

    COVID Covid Testing on a FRIDAY afternoon or later in Santiago dC.

    Two members of our party are returning to the United States on a Sunday morning flight out of Santiago. Does anyone have experience on getting a valid Covid test on a Friday afternoon/evening and getting the results in hand for a flight on Sunday morning? If so, with which lab? Thank you very...

    Who's Walking the Coastal Route in 2015?

    I've just begun planning a September 12 start from Caminha or A Guarda (depending on if the ferry is back in operation). The planning is just in its second day, and the rest of my group (those who walked the Ingles with me last September) haven't agreed yet :)

    Souvenir tiles

    Thank you! I hadn't thought about simply requesting it. It wasn't there, so I kept looking elsewhere. I'll see if they do special requests :) They DO have it, but shipping is outrageous. 20 Euro to Europe?! Please.

    Souvenir tiles

    After my Camino, I bought a shell tile in Santiago, but now I've realized that I should have bought more - for the office, for the gate and another just on case. I've searched and searched, but haven't found them on the internet. Hard to believe that ebay is on every shop in Santiago doesn't...

    The Pomeranian Way of St James

    Thank you! I'll make sure to see if there are any waymarkers next time I'm in the neighborhood. It's too bad they chose to make the Way along the busiest road from Kretinga to Klaipeda. Totally unsafe, and not very pretty. There's much better, more scenic and safer routes (and just as...

    The Pomeranian Way of St James

    I contacted the Kretinga tourism office. Unfortunately, they don't have anything on the web (they said the cannot share the brochures and maps because of copyright issues...). From what I understand, they're in the middle of a public procurement procedure where someone will mark sights along...

    The Pomeranian Way of St James

    I'm having difficulty in finding a detailed route description or route map for the Lithuanian bit (from Kretinga). Is it out there? Aidas

    Camino Ingles 6 September to 10 September

    We stayed at the Albergue de Delia. WONDERFUL! Delia and her aunt hung out with us into the wee hours of the morning in the huge, green and beautiful back yard. Two of our party had some serious feet issues, and Maria carefully cleaned and bandaged them. The next morning made sure that the...

    Albergue in Siguiero?

    I made reservations at the elalberguededelia@gmail.com. 15 Euro per person in a double room. incluye: ropa de cama, toallas y desayuno. So, it's a pretty good deal.

    Camino Ingles 6 September to 10 September

    Is the Meson Novo ON the camino? I.e. is it just a bit further along the Way from Bruma, or do you need to get off the camino for it?

    Camino Ingles 6 September to 10 September

    My thoughts exactly. Will do.

    Camino Ingles 6 September to 10 September

    Just got a reply! Pretty quick, considering the others. 15 Euro with linen AND breakfast (two per room, bunk beds). I like the quick reply - I am a sucker for prompt customer service.

    Camino Ingles 6 September to 10 September

    I'm not sure - Bar Luis seems to have brightened people's lives (judging from posts here on the forum), so I decided it is a safe bet.

    Camino Ingles 6 September to 10 September

    I'm a cyclist and occasional hiker, so I think that I'll be OK. The others say that they hike regularly :) We'll find out who's been fibbing along the way... The albergue that you heard about - any more info?
