    Porto - Santiago April

    Hi. Is there anyone can comment about weather conditions in the beginning of April in Porto-Santiago regions? Is it windy, rainy? Cold? Also about Credential - where is it possible to obtain it?

    If I already have the credential, do I still have to register in SJPD anyway?

    As the title says. Do we need to go to the pilgrim office to register, regardless of having the official credential, which I have bought from this website? Or are we good to go? Thanks!

    Order a passport or get it in Spain?

    I read that some people get their pilgrim's passport when they arrive in Spain, and I also see that it can be ordered and sent to your home before you leave. Are they both the exact same passport? Is there any reason to do it one way rather than the other? I'll be starting my camino in...
