    Central or Espiritual Portuguese Route?

    Armenteriera has a beautiful monastery with a pilgrim blessing each evening. Very special singing from the nuns and a prayer in your language. The next day is the single best day of walking in all my walking....ever. So beautiful...the path of stone and water. Don't miss it.

    Hiking Poles - leaving them behind...

    I flew Ryan air from Barcelona to Santiago de C. I had my poles on my carry-on suitcase.(taken down to three pieces for each pole). I had unscrewed the metal tips and screwed on rubber tips. I had no problems. Maybe luck? I don't know, but did this on the advice from this Forum. Anybody else?

    I ended up staying on the traditional Camino de Santiago routes. It was pretty; not too much asphalt. I felt the need to be able to call, and get help if needed. Thanks

    Options: what to do after arriving in Santiago

    I loved Lires. Better than Muxia and Finesterre. I stayed at LiresCa, walked town the river to the beach and enjoyed a drink at the bar there. So quiet, peaceful but not exciting.

    Wise Pilgrim App Porto to Vigo

    Apologies for my ignorance. Will the app show me where I am and where the route is? I've grown dependent on navigation showing me how to get from one place to another. I'd just open the app on my phone to map my location and the route? Thank you
