    Greetings all, I'm OK for a catch up. I babysit on a Wed and Thursday but my wife could do it solo. So basically any day.

    Hi All, I am all well down in Plymouth, my wife and I decided at the outset that we would maintain a strict quarantine even when things began to move again. I had luckily stored a fair amount of dry and tinned goods before Covid had reared its evil head. (tip off from a friend who works in...

    A massive thanks to Ivar.

    Today I made some purchases from the store while sitting in the sun and combining with dirty glasses I selected two incorrect items. I only realised when I saw the confirmation email when the sun went in. I sent a message to Ivar and two minutes later an amended email popped up withe correct...

    What would you like to ask John Brierley?

    I would just like to say thank you to John. I was in Fontoura just after Rubiaes on CP and leaving a cafe as he walked in. I had my guide open and was checking for the next refreshment stop. I looked up at him then back down to the little flap with his picture on and up again, he smiled and said...

    Where to start...few days camino from Porto

    I walked the Cp Litoral last May with a friend who wasn't able to entertain long daily walks. We had both been to Porto before and our plane landed at 22.00hrs so caught the metro into the Carolina Michaelis stop and it is a 2 min walk to the auberge. You are able to book directly with them...

    Rucksac cover with hard of hearing sign.

    Thank you everyone for your contributions and ideas, I was going with the sewing or glue on a sign on my sac but wondered if anyone had come across such an item. Think I will add SORDO as well underneath, especially after today as I was reading Thomas the Tank Engine books to one of my...

    Rucksac cover with hard of hearing sign.

    Has anyone come across a cover for ruck sacs with a hard of hearing sign? On my two Caminos I have had a few very close calls with cyclists riding up behind very fast and nearly hitting me. On every occasion I not heard them approaching. The worst was on a slight downhill section of a smooth...

    The week after Easter.

    Hi @janus , its a bit like how long is a piece of string? As background I completed the Portuguese in 2015 and 2016. First trip was a nightmare a group of four of us decided to attempt the central route in 9 days. If you are fit and happy with longish days you can do it. I didn't like it as...

    Osprey quality - fabric fraying

    If you are able to return to the store you purchased it from I am sure they will be very helpful. Osprey have a very good guarantee. A friend had a similar problem and was given a replacement.

    The week after Easter.

    I am planning to walk the coastal route from Porto starting 24th April. I was wondering if this will be still very busy as its the week after Easter? Also another question, what is the cost of the ferry trip to Caminha and do you need to book it?
