    Portuguese coastal route

    Lar, Keep the faith. There are only two important days on your Camino- the day you start and the day you have to travel home! There's that other great chestnut about itineraries- Men make plans and God laughs at them. If I was there I'd rock with hel&scott's idea of the bus to Tui and move on...

    Help with blistered feet!

    Cheers for that Stephen, Indeed I will be back. I fell in love with walking the Camino back in 2008. This was to be my longest since I began. My wife had facilitated this greatly but with the knowledge that it would not be possible next year due to changing work circumstances. Five of us had...

    Help with blistered feet!

    Stephen, Thanks for the advice. I saw Albertino mention the liner but I didn't try it. Going to have the pack carried by Tuitrans for the first time since I started doing the Camino. It should help.
