I am flying into Lisbon, Portugal, on 30 April 2014 and will be setting off on the camino Portuguese on either the 1st or 2nd of May.
I am travelling alone and don’t expect to see many other pilgrims on this route, until I reach Porto where the majority of people start their pilgrimage on the camino Portuguese.
According to the John Brierly guidebook the distance from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela in Spain is 615 km (as opposed to 800 km for the camino Frances starting in St Jean Pied de Port in France and crossing Spain from east to west).
I shall be writing a daily post of my challenges and achievements on this lesser walked route. You can read my daily posts here
