On the other hand I do not want to carry the extra weight if I...

    Schengen Requirement to show €100 per day upon entry to Spain?

    You misunderstood me - I made a statement, I did not asked a question. This is about my 6th application for a Schengen Visa, so I am familiar with the procedures. That will also be the reason that I got my visa now is valid for years.

    Schengen Requirement to show €100 per day upon entry to Spain?

    Hi Elisha I start walking in a month's time, the third year in a row. I had shin splints two years back but still walked 200 km to Santiago. I don't know if you have that, but want to add my unprofessional advice: - Take it easy - Get kinetic tape and read on YouTube how to use it to support...
