Camino - Sarria
Hi all - just negotiating diary time with the wife so i can take two weeks for the Portuguese route. Im looking at mid sept - not sure on coastal or inland yet.

Has anyone done that period and have any thoughts or tips?

Thanks in advance

Planning to walk Camino Portugues Sept 2018
Hi, I finished central route Porto to Santiago on Monday... and it’s been fab. The albergues were busy as I believe sept is a busy month for the Portugués Way, but only twice did I really struggle for accommodation, and had to pay for a nice hotel. The actual walk didn’t feel crowded, nor the cafes on route as everyone leaves at slightly diff times. The weather has been fantastic, not one drop of rain.

Enjoy and Buen comino

Will finish the Portuguese coastal route in 5 days. Weather has been pretty good but quite a bit of fog in the mornings along the coast. It usually lifts by noon or earlier. Last two days, the fog has been less. No rain to speak of (I think that is unusual - particularly in Galacia).
