Decided that I was tired of rolling my ankles on the rocky and rooty trails of New England and had an epiphany...which amounted to "what the hell am I doing?". What I did was book a flight and what I will be doing is embracing the Portuguese Camino from Lisbon to Santiago starting September 5, 2019. My second Camino after an incredible Camino Frances shared with my daughter less than a year ago. Heart is full and I'm roarin' to go...

There are a few rough sections from Lisbon to Porto, where I tripped once, but not even on cobblestone! The cobblestone IS to be reckoned with!

Hope so!
A truly beautiful route and very different from the CF. For me, the cobblestones were trip ending. I never could find the protective combination of LT Tape, ankle braces, insoles, pole use to protect my Achilles--both were injured after 9 days Lisbon-Porto then 4 days from Porto.
I hope to do it again--but will do serious resistance training beforehand.

I was sorry to learn of your experience and I'm surprised to hear the cobblestones have the potential to test us so much. I've been alternating shoes to feel the best fit and after wearing the boots today and reading the above posts, think I've made my decision.
