however should i wish a change i would prefer to stay in donation only albergues.
I personally think that a donation should be at least 5 euro per person - if not more! Anne

The two points that interested me most were
.1 The donation albergues you described and
2 The time it took you to walk your route.
I would like to accept your kind offer of knowing the distances you walked each day though i can use google maps if you dont have the time

My question - what did you carry - how much weight, and what footwear did you use?
I have a theory, backed up by some practical walking, that an ultralight pack (less than 5 kg) plus light running/training shoes (plus plenty of practice) can allow one to cover 40 - 50 kms a day.
I haven't done the camino yet, so any comments from all you experienced pilgrims would be most welcome
For obvious reasons didn't originally quote the km. How one walked in the past is no guarantee for the future. And what works for one may be torture for another.
How far to walk per day? Rest days or not? It is all so personal and you never really know how your body will stand up to the rigors of the Camino until you do it.
