    How hilly is it from Sarria to Lugo?

    Great feedback! Thanks! I think I will take the poles. Better to have them and not need them.

    How hilly is it from Sarria to Lugo?

    Thank you Peregrina2000!! I think a 5 km walk is a great way to start the day before jumping on the bus to Santiago!

    How hilly is it from Sarria to Lugo?

    Ok Hi GettingThere, thank you so much for saying something. Yes, I was a bit confused! LOL! I just talked with my friend who walked the route last year (and stayed at several of the place I stayed at) and now I see that I'm nowhere near the town of Lugo, BUT the bus ticket I have goes through...

    Ok... Thank you for your help! The address of where I'm staying is show as LUGAR LESTEDO S/N (CASA RECTORAL) 27216 PALAS DE REI (LUGO), 27216 Lugo, Spain. Does this make more sense, then?

    How hilly is it from Sarria to Lugo?

    CORRECTION: Thanks to those on this forum, I am now aware that I'm not going to Lugo. I feel a bit silly, but since I'm only walking for 2 full days and had a friend who walked the Camino last year help me, I didn't do enough of my own research. So grateful I posted my incorrect info so you all...

    Learning Easy Spanish

    I'm looking online now and there are non-connectivity apps available. Would love feedback from others on the best ones. I just noticed Google Translate has offline translations that can be downloaded. It seems to work, but won't speak it for me without a network connection, so we have to read...

    Learning Easy Spanish

    I would love to know an app that doesn't need connectivity to translate. I have Google Translate (I'm on an iPhone)? I use it ALL THE TIME with my gardener who doesn't speak english. I speak or write what I want, it translates it, then audibly speaks to Jose for me. :-) Couldn't live without...

    Mondoñedo in Lugo crowned one of Spain's Most Beautiful Villages

    Thank you for pointing that out, Theatergal! I didn't realize Lugo is also a province, which makes sense since the article is about Mondoñedo. Walking the wall sounds great. Thanks for mentioning that!

    Vegan on the Camino!

    I am traveling alone and staying in hotels (only traveling for a few days). If I don't stay at the communal albergues, would I still be able to pay to share the communal meal? I LOVE reading how many vegans are on the Camino!!!
