    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    This menu looks good, lot of variety! And I'm definitely not complaining about the price of the menu's.

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    No, they were definitely menu del dia at lunchtime (poster went to supermarket for small dinner later in the day).

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    I've seen some you tube video's from menu del dia's on the camino and it looked like the main was always something like chicken or cod with fries. No problem with meat or fish with fries, but every day? Would love to try the local specialties but I think you have to order from the carta then?

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    But the topic starter just said the menu del dia is much better than de menu peregrino 🤔 Or is Pilgrim Menu not the same as menu peregrino?

    Portuguese Credential Has ARRIVED!!!

    This one also doesn't fit well in the plastic holder I bought with it. If I had known the right size I wouln't even have ordered the holder with it: it's the standard size to fit car registration papers in my country, but it's a bit to wide and not long enough for the credential, it sticks out a...

    Celebrate the Menú del Dia!

    I haven't walked the camino yet, so the difference is not very clear to me. From what I understand the Menu del Dia is originally for the Spaniards themselves, but of course everyone can order them, including pilgrims. Served at lunch time. Pilgrim Menu is 'invented' for the pilgrims because...

    Portuguese Credential Has ARRIVED!!!

    Just received my Porto-credential 🙂. Ten days within Europe. Funny how you can get a wrong idea from seeing photos, it's much smaller than I'd imagined 😄.

    Rain, rain, rain in the forecast! Should I brave it?

    November will definitively give you high chances of rain, but those 10-14 day forecasts are pretty useless. They might be able to predict the next 24 hours reasonably well, but the longer ones usually keep changing.

    Post a picture of your credential!

    That is what I meant as well: when you need more then 1 credential for 1 camino.

    Post a picture of your credential!

    How do you use the 6 credencials (or in general: more than one credential) if you want to get a distance certificate at the end? Do you simply collect your next sellos in an empty new credential? Or do you need the same sello on the first page of a new credential as is on the last page of the...

    Forced Booking Cancellations

    I understand my money will be refunded if the property cancels on me. I meant that if you want a plan B and book a second place, just in case, you either have to cancel it 24-72 hrs before arrival to prevent having to pay for the night, still risking your other booked property cancels on you. Or...

    Forced Booking Cancellations

    Nice idea, but most places require cancellation at least 24 to 72 hours in advance, so how to have a plan B then? I don't have the budget, and I'm not willing, to pay for two places, just to make sure one of them won't be cancelled.

    Portuguese Credential Has ARRIVED!!!

    Akula posted a link, it's right on this page.

    Portuguese Credential Has ARRIVED!!!

    That's what I read as well. Guess the only way to get one will be to buy it online then.

    Portuguese Credential Has ARRIVED!!!

    Do you know if the Porto-credential is available at the Porto Cathedral?

    Forced Booking Cancellations

    I still think this would be a very good idea.

    What would you do?

    You might not want to hear this but volunteering at a children's home might not be in the best interest of those children. Just picked two of the many articles on this subject: https://www.worldnomads.com/responsible-travel/make-a-difference/people/orphanage-visits-more-harmful-than-helpful...

    Forced Booking Cancellations

    What a pity this is happening. I have made a lot of reservations using booking. com. Most important reason being it's easy to book, easy to change and easy to cancel a reservation. I usually don't cancel reservations just before arrival, but being the kind of person who likes to have...

    Compostela confusion with unrecognized Caminos

    I still wonder how they calculate the distance they write on the distance certificate. On the Camino Portugues from Porto to Santiago de Compostela there are different routes: the Central and the Coastal (with or without Litoral stages). Starting and finishing point is the same, but Central...

    MRI for a hurting Pilgrim in Hontanas.

    I agree with some of the previous post: stop walking if the pain is that bad. What value would a MRI add at this moment? Either some problem is seen on it and she will have to stop walking. Or nothing will be seen on it and she still would have to stop walking and give her knee rest.
