    Alright, the clock has begun, 25 days until flight to Porto! Of course, it us a milk run, but that is the norm from here in the west to almost any spot.
    But, the gear is checked, the long hikes (with full pack of course) are at normal distance +, and the excitement has begun. We have our booking for arrival in Porto, and in Santiago, and then afterwards back to Porto for a few days of fun.
    Eat, walk, sleep...soon.

    ..take best shoes possible. Otherwise you will thank to God for every meter of asphalt road. Bom Caminho!

    You guys should be excited! And hopefully the weather will cool down a little for you. It seems that by only booking the beginning and end of your trip you will have lots of flexibility. We stayed on the coast all the way rather than cut back to the central route, and then took the 'spiritual variant' after Pontevedra, again along the coast to keep cool. As you know there is no right way... just your way. We will be living vicariously through your exploits, so make sure you send updates! Bom caminho.

    Hey wanderers - I'll be a couple of days behind you and I'm also getting excited about my first walk on the CP. I'm still in process of dusting off my Camino gear from three years ago. But no chance of this plodding 72 year old catching up to 'high-stepping' young ones.

    Buen Camino!
