Yes, it’s time for new adventures on the Camino de Santiago!
I’ll be travelling to Porto this weekend to begin the Portuguese Central Camino de Santiago.
I shall not lie to you. I am a little biased when it comes to the beautiful city of Porto, as Iived in the city for my first 18 months after moving to Portugal.
Porto is a colourful and vibrant city with a laid-back and peaceful vibe that can only come from its inhabitants. The good citizens of Porto are some of the kindest people I have ever met.
Cais da Ribeiro just might be one of the most beautiful places in the world and the perfect spot to watch the world go by. Ribeira means riverside and Cais da Ribeira is the district on the banks of the Douro River that runs up into the heart of historic Porto’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Ponte de Dom Luis (pictured) is an iconic bridge in Porto that crosses the Rio Douro from the Cais de Ribeira to Vila Nova De Gaia.
Pilgrims can begin either the Central or Coastal Portuguese Camino de Santiago from the Cathedral right at the heart of the city.
If you need help preparing for your Camino de Santiago, I offer Camino Itinerary Planning where I am on hand to advise you on the routes, accommodation, baggage and airport transfers. I take care of the details, leaving you to enjoy the magic. You can view the details at Wild Camino Itinerary Planning Services.
I share my love for the people, the culture, the food, and my passion for the Camino de Santiago in my book, A Wild Woman’s Guide to the Camino de Santiago. I provide practical advice for pilgrims preparing to walk the Camino de Santiago including snippets from my journey and stories from Camino pilgrims.
As always, I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to get in touch by replying this email or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Buen Camino! I’ll be sharing my adventure with you very soon.
