    When someone asks "de donde eres..." I usually reply Florida. As an American and proudly so, I nonetheless, am aware that being one these days in a foreign country can automatically make you a lightning rod for all manner of adverse commentary...

    K. Buckley reacted to Lisa HS's post in the thread Credential...enough space? with Like.
    Another reason to get 2 identical credentials: If you want to frame it afterwards, you'd like to be able to see both sides, right? Just get stamps on one side of the 1st credential, and stamps on the other side of the 2nd credential, and you will...

    I am going to be a curmudgeon about REI, and vent a bit. :p I posted this last year, but my curmudgeonly view hasn't changed. Periodically I will shop at REI for a specific item (the Sahara Pants and shirts are favorites), but I tend to avoid it...

    Agree with Vacajoe. Bus is easier. Faster. When get off the bus in Porto, go downstairs to catch the metro into Proto proper. Easy system. Small bus station compared to one in Lisboa. If staying over night in Porto, I recommend the Hotel...

    Japan is 70%?!!? That must be from overly-cautious Japanese citizens because habingvlived there, it’s 100% safe 100% of the time! As for the point at hand, though, walking the Camino felt extremely safe and really shouldn’t keep one from going...

    K. Buckley reacted to t2andreo's post in the thread SJPP --> Santiago Pacing with Like.
    Mr. Brierley chose 33 days as a framework for the stages in his guidebook as that was the number of years that Jesus Christ lived as a human on earth. I recall that is spelled out somewhere in the overly long preachy bits of his guidebooks. I...
