    How to get to the Camino routes starting points

    In the overview of "How to get to Camino starting points" there is a sentence: "There are lots of buses that go to Santiago and Lugo that stop in Sarria.." AND YET, I have been unable to find a bus or train, direct or indirect from Sarria to Santiago. I would like to go from Sarria to Santiago...

    Self-guided tour companies

    Thanks to all who have posted their thoughts on self-guided tour companies here. I discussed it with my husband and we agreed that I would do some preliminary searching for luggage transfer companies and booking our own accommodations. It seemed feasible. I have arranged luggage transport with...

    Airport transit visa question??

    Thanks for keeping me on my toes trecile! I checked out the TripAdvisor link. My situation is different because I booked Ryanair from SdC to Stansted, London directly from Ryanair and independent of my kiwi.com booking. That seems pretty straight forward. My kiwi booking starts the...

    Airport transit visa question??

    For my departure from Gatwick I will definitely get the premium passage (I looked and it can be purchased for arrivals and/or departures). I am flying into Stansted airport 11:45 am one day on Ryanair, overnighting and flying out of Gatwick at 10:40am the next day. Currently I have booked...

    Airport transit visa question??

    Is it likely there still will be longer queues in June (the 12th to be precise)? I hope that two plus hours will be enough... If not I guess I will have another adventure. ;)

    Airport transit visa question??

    The good news is that a consular embassy officer for the Netherlands wrote back and said I do not need an Airport Transit Visa. Also, it doesn't seem Brexit will happen anytime soon...

    Airport transit visa question??

    Thank you for setting my mind at ease re airport visa. I do know that I could be stuck if there are schedule changes. A risk for very cheap airfare with relatively short transit time at a decent hour. I am not traveling with much luggage and it is in the cabin from London so I figured I would...

    Airport transit visa question??

    First, I am excited to be able to say I have booked my air travel for upcoming Camino Portugues in May and am looking forward to walking a camino again!!! BUT, maybe I got such good prices on my return airfares because I booked something that I didn't realize may be very difficult... I am a US...

    Self-guided tour companies

    Thanks for all your thoughtful comments! For my husband's peace of mind I think we will use a tour company. We have used Booking.com many times but usually for sightseeing car vacations. I will look into Caminoways and walkthecamino.com. I am happy to support a good tour company which also...

    Self-guided tour companies

    Has anyone walked the Coastal route from Porto using a self-guided tour company such as Portugal Green Walks? Their website says they arrange accommodations and luggage transfers and provide a "road book". My husband and I took several long distance walks in Scotland using a self-guided tour...

    I am at the beginning of planning a walk on the Camino Portugues (from Porto) in May or June of this year, with my husband. Together we have done two distance walks in Scotland and I know he does best with shorter distances each day (say a variety 8 to 13 miles) than I see on the "usual"...
