        Hi,
        I really enjoyed the coastal route in Portugal from Porto to Santiago and am returning in September to walk the central route from Porto to Santiago. Beautiful scenery and town, the people are wonderful and many speak English, and the food really is good especially if you like seafood and pastries. It is also a little cheaper than Spain.

        Bom Caminho!

      So Mike, shall I expect to make your acquaintance after Lisbon? Spending three nights there, then departing for Santiago Sept 7.

        I think I will just miss you. I arrive in Lisbon on the 9th for two days then a day in Fatima and two days in Porto. I will probably bus from there to Marinhas on the 14th and start walking to Santiago. I expect to be in Santiago Sept 24-25th. If you see an old guy (60) with a gray handlebar mustache make sure to say hi if I don't say it first! Bom Caminho, I hope you have the best time ever.

        Good to hear from you Willy. I will be walking the Portuguese Coastal route Sept 8-26. I know I will be in Porto Sept 12 and plan to be in Santiago Sept 23-25 and fly out the morning of the 26th. Any Saturday before then if you want to do a training walk let me know and I can meet you most anywhere.

      Hey, Willy! Nope I'm not out walking. I'm still waiting to see if I can get off work for 5 weeks September-October to walk Lisbon to Fatima to Porto to Santiago with another forum member whom I met in Santiago last year. I hope you have a great time.

      Thanks for your response about the Teva sandals. The grooves on the footbed are what cause your blisters? There's no kind of insole you could add? I guess that gets more complicated. I am a little more worried that the straps will chafe. What will you use for second shoes? Exciting that you are leaving on your Camino soon! I'm not going till spring. Cheers, Jill

        JillGat, I don't want to have to carry insoles in addition to the sandals. The straps are great I just wish the soles worked for me. For second shoes I am bringing Sockwa G4s which really are minimalist. It is slightly more protection for the soles of your feet than going bare foot. Buen Camino!
