    Roast octopus on the beach?

    I’m headed out with my mom soon, and she’s remembering something about a place where octopus is roasted on the beach? Does anyone know what she’s thinking about? Internet searches come up empty.

    We are either starting in Sarria or Lugo, as mom isn’t sure she can manage more than 100km (I’m hoping we’ll be able to push to Finisterre)

    Thank you!

    So, my mother and I leave for our first Camino in a week. We just sort of assumed we could pick up a credential when we get there. Is this the case, or do we need to order them from some official place?

    Queimada in Sarria?

    I want to double check how to pronounce it - is it que-ee-mada?

    Queimada in Sarria?

    So, I've just started reading about the ritual around this beverage, Queimada , and I was hoping we might find a place that makes it in Sarria? Does anyone know if it's something easy to find?

    September 2018 who’s going?

    My mom and I are hitting the Way on September 24th, but we're only starting in Sarria (we can only get off work for a couple of weeks).

    They make Crocs sandals that are slightly less heinous than the foot-boats that are typical crocs. Same spongy bottom!
