Most people hiking the Camino de Santiago start their journey in France, but not @joesills or @liz. They took the less crowded but still SO scenic Portuguese Way (Caminho Português de Santiago), a 620km trail linking Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela. On the way, spend the night at locally-owned albergues, dine in traditional restaurants and tour small towns that have struggled as their residents flocked to the bigger cities.  Maybe even make a detour to Variante Espiritual, as Joe recommends: “It’s the kind of place to find yourself alone with your thoughts, your partner or whatever ghosts haunt your steps around the planet.” Slow down and take it allll in.
