    My wife (58) and I (64) and another married couple (59 & 56) are considering walking part of the Portuguese “Camino” next July. We would fly to Lisbon from the U.S. and then spend two or three a days exploring Lisbon before setting off on a 7-day walk on “The Camino.” We have no fixed idea of where to start or end our Camino walk. We know only that we want to walk 12-15 km per day and then relax, drink wine, eat good food, and enjoy one another’s company. We would want to stay in nice B&Bs or small inns or small hotels every night (we would need two rooms, each with a king or queen bed). We aren’t interested in 5-Star accommodations… but neither would we wish to find ourselves in 1- or 2-Star places. We want to be comfortable. Really, this is a “once every five year vacation together” and we won’t even want to carry anything but water and light snacks as we walk, i.e. we would want our luggage to be transported to the next night’s stop by someone else who would then meet us along the way and walk with us and help us gain a better understanding of the country of understand Portugal and “The Way.” My wife is half Portuguese – her ancestors are from The Azores (San Miguel). The four of us spent a week there a few years ago and loved every minute. What ideas do you have about our proposed trip to Portugal? Thanks! —Bob
