I'm so happy to be a new member of this community.
I'm planning my first long-solo trip in Portugal for september. I'm planing to start from Lisbone and to use the Rota Vicentina road to Faro.... or the Argarve in general.
From my reading on diferents blogues, it seem that the roads aren't well marked... but I don't know if it's still accurate and if it's the case for the Rota Vicentina.
1- Do you think i would need a GPS (if, so, which one would you recommand ?) or an application like Google map or other could be enough ?
2- IIs there anyone who already tried that itinary ? what did you think, what would you recommend ? I'm very open to any tips, suggestions or ideas :)
3- I never used Warmshowers before... is it safe for solo woman ? Also, it easier to find places to tend + access to bathroom or is there a lot of places that offer ? Im asking because if I have more chances to get places with a tent, I would bring it but otherwise, I might keep my bags lighter and look only for bedrooms...
Thank you all! :)
