After arriving in Lisbon my boyfriend Sean and I travelled north to Porto to hike The Camino finishing in Santiago de Compostela.
We booked through a Spanish company - Santiago Ways. They provided luggage transfer each day, giving us the freedom to walk with just a day pack through the beautiful Portuguese and then Spanish countryside, villages and towns.
Commencing mid October it was most definitely off peak but we enjoyed the quieter trails and took every opportunity to sample the local coffee and cake...... we ate more than our fair share of Pastel de nata!
