    • Camping out?

      Canary Islands Nov 12, 2015 at 7:55 AM

      Hi, my partner and I will be visiting the Canary Islands for two months over Christmas.
      We are really keen to camp out and have discovered a number of state run camp sites which sound great but hard to find much out about, I do understand you must get a permit to camp.
      Loving the outdoors and exploring, we don't mind a lack of facilities and being a bit out of the way.
      Any information about camping on Gran Canaria and Tenerife would be greatly appreciated!

      We would also be very up for helping out on any projects, anything eco-minded, help with building, caring for animals, gardening and so on, especially if there is availability for camping!
      So if anyone can think of anywhere or anyone who could help, please get in touch!

      Many Thanks

      We will be on a cruise ship and making two stops into Vigo port.
      One stop is on a Thursday (17/9), our second call will be on a Sunday (4/10).
      In trying to plan our day we will probably take a tour on one of the stops (Vigo, Bayonna & Galician coastline). The second stop we "will wander" around Vigo.
      Considering a cruise ship is in port will everything be open on a Sunday or should we make our "free" day in Vigo on the Thursday.

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

      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

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?
