Hello all,

I was thinking about starting in leon but i am unsure about renting a bike or walking.i am also going solo. so basically i only have a few weeks left of school here and i need to figure things out pronto! any help would be great, and if anyones going to be on the camino during that time i would def meet up for some of it, well thanks and i hope to hear from you guys!

Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.
Welcome John. Here's an alternative: check out the Camino Portugues + the Camino de Fisterra, great for ur time span. Best, xm 8)

Thank you for the reply XM, i think im going to do the camino de portugues. its mapped out to be around 145 miles. with travel to porto and from santiago to madrid where my flgiht leaves to go back to the states, i think i will have around 9 days to do it. Have you done this camino, what do you recommend on how to get to porto from Valencia, and are there any books in english i could get before leaving on my trip, is there a place in porto where i can get a pilgrim pass...or direct me in the right way so i can get more information on this....Thank you!john p
Hello John P, congrats on ur decision to walk the Camino Portugues :!: It is one of the most beautiful Caminos, historically well-documented. I've done it on three ocassions, from Ponte de Lima and Tui, so that if u start in Porto, u'd have to get back to us and tell us all about it :!: Valencia :arrow: Porto= bus. I believe the readings + sites that Sil provided u with will give u much plenty of info. You should be able to obtain the credencial at the cathedral in Tui. The web site for AGACS (Asociacion Gallega de Amigos del Camino de Santiago) has a lot of Spanish language info on the C Portugues. U planning on walking to Fisterra, too? Best, xm 8)

John, suggestions:

buy ur (trekking) shoes with care, they're most important. Also, make sure ur t-shirts are made out of synthetics, zero cotton, if at all poss.

hello again..

hello all again, ok so as ive been researching this camino more i really do not know if i can do the trip in 8 days of walking and not feel like im being rushed through each town. What are your guys experience with this, because most websites give stage lengths and its a 14 my question is it possible to walk this in only 8 or 9 days from Porto?? Thanks again, John
One of the great things about this adventure is that u can start it from wherever u want. You may want to consider Ponte de Lima as ur starting point, it counts towards obtaining the Compostela. Best, xm 8)
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
