    Crossing from Coastal route to inland route. Mindelo to Vilarinho

    Gday all. Just wondering if anyone can give me an opinion on crossing the coastal route at Mindelo to Vilarinho. It seems to me on the guide book map to be a shorter distance to cross. Which would mean far less roadside walking than what I have seen and heard about if one crosses from Vida do...

    Most bizarre question(and most misunderstood) ever asked about the Camino
