    Sleeping in a dorm room where there's someone with a CPAP

    Definitely use your cpap and if you can get the smaller travel size perfect. I use a cpap and have never had a complaint from my husband regarding any noise from the machine, it is whisper quiet so much better than snoring etc. Anyone who complains of cpap white noise should stay home and take...

    Partial coastal or full inland route?

    The coastal is gorgeous and you could do it all the way to Caminha then go inland.

    Hi Emily Have you decided what camino you are doing and if you are doing it this summer. My husband and I are currently discussing going in July to Porto and doing the same as what I did. Hope to book three weeks and show him the sights and taste the food and drink. Really hoping it works out. 🤞

The Atlantic coast is beautiful and the towns along the way so lovely. It was a huge accomplishment and one that will forever be a big memory for...

    Help needed with the first stages of Camino Portugues

    I did the Senda de Litoral May/June 2017 and loved the journey. Kept my days relatively short plus started early morning as it was hot and humid for the 3 weeks of my camino. The scenery along the Atlantic coast is gorgeous and food and drink wonderful. Buen Camino

    Camino Portugues - Having Second Thoughts

    I walked the Senda de Litoral from Porto to Santiago and although the cobblestones are difficult on the feet the scenery was stunning along the Atlantic coast. I pre booked all my accommodations in hostels or hotels through booking dot com. You may have less options for open bars/restaurants...

    Littoral Route from Porto info

    I loved the Senda de Litoral. The long stretches of Atlantic coastline are spectacular. The communities are lovely and food and drink wonderful.
