    Need to skip a section between Tui and Redondela -- Where?

    Hi everyone, In order to accommodate my slower walking pace (and total vacation days,) I am planning to skip a night in Porriño and go directly from Tui to Redondela. Can you suggest the prettiest section for me to walk a maximum of 18k/11mi? I see that the entry to Porriño has a nice detour...

    Slippery When Wet? Trail runners on Portuguese tiled walkways

    I wore my old reliable Keen hiking shoes three times on the CF and lighter weight Salomon hiking shoes this past year on the Kumano Kodo, not wanting to shlep heavy boots on a month-long trip through Japan. I'm planning to walk the Portuguese this spring and have been considering investing in...

    For Sale/Wanted Altus Rainseries Atmospheric Poncho, med/lg, blue, never worn!!

    Hi -- I bought the Altus Rainseries Atmospheric in "medium/large" before leaving the hot, dry Meseta two years ago, with the idea that I'd have it for my return this year to chilly, rainy Galicia.

    Hi there! I return in May for my third walk along the third-third, Leon To Santiago. I'll walk solo for around ten days and meet up with a friend on a Sunday in O'Cebreiro. She is taking the bus from Madrid, will arrive Pedrafita around 4pm, and then take a taxi up to meet me. My question is...

    (very) early morning flight out of Santiago

    I need to get myself from Santiago to Leipzig, Germany in one day, and the best way for me is to begin with a 6:40am Iberia flight out of Santiago. Has anyone had experience with making such a flight? I'm assuming the airport is a short taxi ride from the city, easy to manage at 5am, and that...

    Outdoor/gear store in Burgos? Monday hours?

    I'm resuming the camino I began last year, picking up again in Burgos. But before arriving in Burgos, I have multiple flights to and inside Europe, and I'd rather not worry about carrying or packing my trekking poles and pocket knife on these flights. Therefore I'm hoping to purchase both in...

    September 2014 Wine Festival Logroño -- Stop or not?

    It looks like we will be passing through Logroño on 22 or 23 September. The annual rioja festival begins on the 21st and runs for a week. Is this something we should plan to stop for -- perhaps take a day off from walking -- or is it something to avoid, in the same way as one would avoid...
