    Money exchange - current rates

    I know it doesn't help you right now but I have a Revolut card. It works in Europe and the US and you can do currency exchange on the app. Its great for travel.

    Bedbug repellent sprays?

    I use natural oils. Peppermint lemongrass and witch hazel. I put it in a small pump sprayer. I spray my gear and myself. So far no issues on 7 Caminos. Bonus it smells nice!!!😂😂😂

    Need cash.....Any canadians in or near sarria tomorrow?

    It works like every other ATM card. If you have it virtually all you have to do is go to an ATM that accepts virtual make sure that NFC is turned on, on your phone, and it will work like a regular ATM card. Most banks will have this technology

    Need cash.....Any canadians in or near sarria tomorrow?

    U can sign up for a card called revolut. Its like Europe's version of PayPal if you will. But you link it to your bank account and can use it virtually on your smart phone

    Senda Litoral between Esposende and Viana do Castelo

    Just a heads up if can avoid it don't stay at the main albergue. They are awful I have stayed there twice and they are terrible. There is another one on the hill it's very nice and quite reasonable. IMO

    Camino Portugues - most scenic route with less road walking?

    Check out the trailsmart app it shows all the routes plus "extras". I like the costal route you can follow it for quite awhile. And the spiritual variant is definitely worth doing if you have time.

    Is the Camino Portuguese crowded?

    I just finished and I am in Porto now I did not have any problems until the last 100km. That is a different story all together. But I think it get less busy at the end of the month because school starts back up
