    Rehydration and electrolytes on the Camino Portugues

    Albergues between Tui and Porrino?

    I have looked at both the Brierley 2016 Camino Portugues Guide and the Harms 2018 Camino Portuguese guide and see no albergues between Tui and Porrino. Does anyone know of Albergues on this 17.5 K stretch?

    Caminho Songs in Portuguese

    I have a collection of lots of Spanish and Galician songs about the camino, but haven't heard many Portuguese Camino songs. Does anyone have any expertise in this area? Favorite songs?

    Walking Poles- Emperors new clothing in stick form ?

    I am pretty sure that I wouldn’t have finished my Camino without hiking poles. They help distribute weight away from my flat feet and kept me from falling or slipping. I have rubber feet on the bottom of my Pacer Poles.
