    Sharing our Roto Vicentina - blog

    I gained so much help from this forum as we prepared for our Roto Vicentina. It is a breathtaking feast of a hike! We walked South to North and while I have never been one to write well I hope my pictures can give someone a glimpse of all it has to offer. Shefollowsshells.blogspot.com is my...

    To the trail angels of the Roto Vicentina

    We want to thank you here on our loved forum for all the work that you have done to make this trail spectacular! The trail is beautifully marked! When one is walking through the woods and comes across water blocking the path a walkway has been put in place. This trail is loved! It is obvious...

    Fares from SCQ to Paris CDG...and flight schedules

    I wondered if anyone has mastered the Santiago flights, what is a good deal, possibly when to find them, or a route that I might not have even thought of. For two Caminos it was just me flying from Santiago to Paris so I didn't pay attention to the cost. My children and I need to be at CDG on...

    input needed re: Train from Lisbon to Lagos

    To those that have either done this or know the train system way better than I do (which would be the majority)... this site seems to imply there are two different transactions for Lisbon-Tunes and Tunes-Lagos that total about 50 Euros. It does imply that there is "now" away to purchase both at...

    Salads in Portugal - curious

    Don't get me wrong, I love seafood and I love pastry. There is no way Portugal can disappoint me. I'm not asking for assurance of the quality of the food, I know I will be thrilled. But I am wondering what is their reputation regarding Salads? For example the Salads from France, in many places...

    UPDATED POST: umbrellas are different-Trekking umbrellas

    Eighteen months ago it seemed difficult for me to get my hands on one of the silver "Euroschirm" handsfree umbrellas. If I'm not mistaken it had just been sold and was under a different name before. There was a distributer out of the USA that I worked with personally to secure our precious 6...

    Lagos ?...spending the night in Sagres

    Another question. I'm really trying to plan this as I feel responsible for a friend and her 18 year old daughter joining us. If it was just me and my family I'd wing it I suspect a lot more... We will be staying three nights in Lisbon (booked) and getting down to Sagres to stay at Pura Diva...

    Hello those who can help me decide! We are departing for the RV in March (south to north) . We will be on trekking for two more months, God willing, after this is complete. Would you advise, once in Porto Covo to continue on to Santiago do Cacem? One might feel like it is no brainer with so...

    and our "rescue" by the Basque Bomberos

    I was attaching this to the other "rescue", but I suspect that thread might be fizzling, though I am tempted to hide this among the fizzle because I can assure you I certainly don't want to hear a lecture from anyone! But I thought by sharing my story, though it is public on a blog...that...

    Sand gaiters...question specific to the sand on the RV

    This is not an equipment question as much as it is an RV specific question for those who have done the RV... would you advise a "soft fabric" gaiter to keep the sand out. I took rain gaiters on my first camino and never felt I mastered putting them on enough to use them. Dirty Girl Gaiters seem...

    Foot product that saved us

    Almost reluctant to post as foot care, shoes etc... can set off a firestorm on hiking forums... BUT if it helps anyone else I thought I'd share this worked for us (a family of 6 that hiked over 1,100 miles last year). My two oldest sons had some foot issues on the Le Puy route, and about 3/4 of...

    It's official we are doing the Rota Vicentina in March!

    Huge thanks to Laurie for putting the bug in my ear about this gorgeous trek.

Time permits so I am hoping after reaching Santiago to do the Camino dos Faros and then head...
