Hi! My plan is to fly to Lisbon with only a carry-on pack and buy some equipment in Lisbon. I am interested in Pacer Poles. Who can tell me where to find those in Lisbon? Bom caminho!

@Jakke you do have to order them from the lovely Heather at www.pacerpole.com but if you ask she might ship them to your first accommodation in Lisbon. Normally she ships very fast but make sure they will get there before you. Afterwards you can just send them home by normal post - unless some other pilgrims offer to buy them off you, which always happens to me ...

I've been walking for two weeks now, and I haven't seen anyone else using Pacer Poles.
I've never used poles before, so can't compare them to other brands, but I love mine. The handle makes them very intuitive to use, and also makes it easy to really support you when necessary.
I had a bit of a scare with mine today. I left them at a rest stop, but fortunately I hadn't hone too far - about 2.2 km, and they were still there waiting for me. Such a relief!

The extra 4.4 km of walking made me decide not to push on to the next town, which was 8 km away. Which was probably a good thing, since I think I've been pushing myself too hard the last few days.

Hope you'll soon be back to full strength. Buen camino!
