Hi all!
I leave today for a month in Portugal and Spain. I start out on the Rota Vicentina "Fisherman's Trail" before heading up to Porto to begin the Portuguese Camino. I'm looking forward to these two new routes for me. It always seems like it takes a long time for my next Camino to roll around...but then like today...it's finally here!

Have a Buen Camino!

From Porto is a very nice & easy walk, but there will be LOTS of cobblestone walking...

9 days from now I will be in Burgos, heading out next Thursday. Will be good to get going again, and then in the Pilgrims Office 20. May - 3. June :)

Hope you have a wonderful walk. 🙂
Thank you, Ed and Joan! The Rota Vicentina book you passed on to me was invaluable in planning. I have it copied onto my phone to reference daily!

Alex, it would have been nice to meet you. I think you will be working and overlap with my forum friend, Peter Franciscus, who will be in the office, too.

All the best, Chris, and Matthew. Ask the Gods of whatever to help poor Fecepa. He has lost a lot of money...
Thank you, Kirkie! And yes, so sad about Fecepa! He needs a miracle...I hope he doesn't have to go home!

I’m staying in the Algarve for a few weeks next winter and hope to do a few days on the Rota Vicentina. Would love to hear your recommendations. Thanks!
I will be posting an overview of my thoughts and observations in a new thread when I return, including my opinion on the lodging.

Chris. Don't forget your fishing rod!
Lots of bacalao to be caught on the Fisherman's Way!
Good travelling mate,
Gerard
Thank you, Gerard! No fishing pole, but maybe if I bring some fishing line (it weighs nothing) I can improvise by having one of my hiking poles do double duty as a fishing rod!😉
