Wow! This summer has flown past. We are flying out to Porto on Friday, Aug 6, picking up our credenciales and checking out Porto on August 7 and then heading out on August 8. We are hoping that if we leave early on a Sunday morning the traffic on the first part will be not as bad as normal. Thanks to everyone who has answered my questions about this route. I've never been to Portugual before, so I am really looking forward to this Camino.
