[edit] Expedition

I´m starting my Camino today (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Way_of_St._James, beginning in Porto, Portugal and going to Santiago, Spain. The way will take around 250km and 10 days. After arriving in Porto I checked for geopoint and to my delight I discovered a) it´s a virgin one b) todays point is almost in the middle of the city. So in the early morning instead of resting after long trip to Portugal, I set on a small geohashing adventure.

Using the power of metro and my soon-to-be-tested-to the limits walking skills I found the point (some big street, kind of hard to get to it, but I managed!) and returned to my hostel even before the breakfest. I´ll upload the pictures as soon as I find some internet place that will allow me to connect my camera to USB port.

Oops, forgot about this one :D. Almost two months later - finally some photos!
