      Writing a book on Portuguese Way of Camino - Tui to Santiago...

      Galicia Sep 2, 2014 at 2:30 AM

      Hi all,
      Having walked this route - Valença/Tui, Porriño, Redondela, Pontevedra,Caldas de Reis, Padrón, Santiago - three times I've been writing a novel where some of the key characters end up on this journey. I'm redoing the walk from September 9 to 16 in order to fill in some authentic detail without relying on my memory. If there are any VT members along that route with time to have a coffee I'd really love to chat to see if you have any local knowledge that could enrich my story... I'm especially concerned about some characters who are from Santiago. I'm afraid that I'll make a silly mistake that will make them seem unauthentic so I'd love to run my ideas by someone from Santiago to see if it sounds realistic. Thanks! Dec

      car rental

      Galicia Jun 22, 2014 at 7:49 PM

      Another question! We are planning to rent a car in santiago to travel west and south. We can't seem to get a clear understanding of how much the repatriacian fee is if we return the car in porto portugal. Ex. Checking eurocar website no clear amount indicated. Is it a significant fee - more than the cost to rent the car? Are we better off returning the car in a city in spain close to porto - vigo ? - and taking a bus to portugal.

    • Good place to start on a walk

      Santiago de Compostela Jun 4, 2014 at 12:53 PM

      We are two retired women, and because of constraints with time and agility, we can't do a major walk along the Pilgrim Ways. We're thinking of flying to Compostela and then taking public transportation to one of the last stops along the way and then walking the rest of the way to the cathedral. We would not be able to do any strenuous climbs.

      Can anyone suggest a good place to start our walk, which can be reached by public transportation?

      Thanks very much.

I have been trying to search for Irish/English bars that might show sports but have found very little. I would also travel to somewhere else in Galicia if required.

      A scenic route from Santiago eastward

      Santiago de Compostela Apr 16, 2014 at 11:48 AM

      Hello everybody,
      In September we'll make a road trip from Toulouse to Santiago de Compostela, driving roughly along the Camino Aragonés / Camino Francés (Pamplona – Logroño – Burgos – Leon etc).
      Now the question is, how shall we return to Toulouse. We'll probably be fed up with architectural masterpieces. We'll rather be looking for the most beautiful natural scenery.
      Could anybody suggest a route to take?
      Thanks a lot in advance!

      where to stay

      Galicia Mar 10, 2014 at 3:33 PM

      Hello all, My husband and I are visiting Galicia for the first time in early July. We arrive in Santiago from Dublin and will stay there one night. We will leave from Porto 5 days later and will spend our last night there. Unfortunately we don't have that much time. We will be renting a car and hope to make the most of our travels without rushing. We look forward to enjoying some time on the coast and prefer small towns to a bigger city such as Vigo. The town of Combados was suggested and wineries in that are- Fefinanes. We look forward to experiencing the people, the culture, the wine and wonderful food. Please advise where you may recommend to stay for the 3 middle nights and any other suggestions are welcome as well.

      Porto to Vigo

      Vigo Feb 6, 2014 at 2:08 AM

      We arrive in Porto in early June and stay 2 nights there before taking the train to Vigo and then Santiago. We understand that we can't prebook the train. We would like to be absolutely certain of catching it as it's essential to our plans. We will have a spare day before we catch it and can go and book then. Does the train tend to get full? We are both senior citizens and want to purchase tarjetas doradas on arrival. Can we purchase them in Porto or just in Spain?
      Finally, we have 3 nights in Santiago and 3 in La Coruna, we plan to hire a car there and visit some of the more remote places. We then have 3 more nights before returning to Porto. I'm torn between Pontevedra or Vigo, or both. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
