We are all set to go forth into the world again, once September comes.
This time, we will be doing the Senda Litoral Route of the Caminho Português (Portuguese Camino, The Portuguese Way, Camino Portugués). And, for the first time, there will be 3 of us walking! Can’t wait for this one… to walk along the coastline of Portugal up and into Spain and make our way to the city of Santiago de Compostela!
Our walk will be broken down as below, as far as we have it planned so far.
|Porto – Vila Do Conde – 33.9km (we are thinking of shaving some of this off by crossing through Porto.)|
|Vila Do Conde – Esposende – 26.4km|
|Esposende – Viana do Castelo – 27.3km|
|Viana do Castelo – Caminha – 27.1km|
|Caminha – Baiona – 31.2km|
|Baiona – Vigo – 26.8km|
|Vigo – Ponte Samaio – 24.5km|
|Ponte Sampaio – Caldas de Reis – 33.3km|
|Caldas de Reis – A Picarana – 28.4km|
|A Picarana – Santiago de Compostela – 16km|
|Santiago de Compostela back to Porto by bus.|
We will be walking this Camino in mid-September of 2022. The best place to live-follow our adventures will probably be on my INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. I usually do daily updates there and then condense into a travel blog post after our return.
I know some of the days may seem a bit long in this itinerary. I’m hoping it’s doable as is. This Camino is definitely less mountainous than the Camino Frances, but there is also a little less infrastructure in places. We shall see.
Now, we wait for September to come as we dream of walking along the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean and eventually walking inland and reaching the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela once again. This time… it will be for the 3rd time for one of us, for the 2nd time for one of us, and for the 1st time for one of us. #CantWait!
