    Casa Ivar The New Bus Station in Santiago de Compostela

    Yeah I am in the same boat, trying to get to Monforte de Lemos on a Saturday at the end of October. Doesn't seem to be anything on Saturdays!

    What can I do late November/early December?

    I am interested in this as well, although I will be a month earlier. Original plan had been to fly to Santiago and walk to Muxia and then Finsterra. As it turns out the easyJet flight I had planned on doesn't run off season. There is a flight on the dreaded Ryanair but only on certain days, so I...

    COVID Need for daily Covid tests in Portugal?

    Yes, the PCR actually checks genetic material while the antigen tests for a protein.

    COVID Need for daily Covid tests in Portugal?

    I wonder if self tests are accepted. I know of some that come with the opportunity to be observed, and others are ones you do yourself to see results and self isolate if needed.

    COVID Need for daily Covid tests in Portugal?

    That it is 2 euro for a test is interesting and I wonder why the labs can charge 50 to 100 or more. I realize I have not looked up Portugal requirements because I was focusing on UK and Spain.

    Compostelas for Dummies

    I am a Luddite and do not have a phone. Not sure what happens if one cannot access this QR at the Pilgrim Office, but I didn't have a phone in October 2019 when I was last in Santiago getting a compostela, so there must be an alternative.

    COVID Need for daily Covid tests in Portugal?

    Wow I am surprised/concerned to hear a particular hotel would not accept US vaccinations. Was this a scam to get your money for tests? I will be going to Lisbon for a few days before I fly home, and realize there is no mention of such requirements. Hmmmmmm.

    Pilgrim office in Monforte

    Many thanks, Peter. Hopefully when I arrive in late October they will be open and I may get a credencial from them.

    Pilgrim office in Monforte

    Two questions since my Spanish is not as good as it should be--in this article are they saying that for two euros we may purchase a credencial? Secondly, I thought this said they are opened every day of the year but when I double checked it in Translate it comes out as every weekday. La...

    Lost interest in PLANNING next Camino…

    Dear OTH Thank you for getting me to think about this topic. I have always considered myself a planner, but I just realized what it is I love is collecting data! I then, of course, put these data to use as needed and as decisions need to be made. At the very least, I know where to go to find...

    New requirements for US travel to Spain — effective Sept. 6

    Thanks for this info, trecile. And it occurs to me as a vaccinated US citizen who is first going to UK, will Spain be OK (as of today) with me not being tested when I continue my journey? I have to be tested to board the plane in the US for arrival in UK, and have to repeat (and pay for) another...

    But don't you need a test in order to board the plane in the US anyway?
