Your favorite “section” of the Camino

The question was:

I would like to spend 10-15 days walking on the Camino Francés in 2011 and was wondering which section to do. I can probably average 25 kms per day.

I understand that arriving in Santiago de Compostela must be something quite special but I don’t mind waiting a year or two until I can get more time off work to walk the whole way.

I’d love to hear your opinions on the most interesting section (if there is one) to make my first walk as enjoyable as possible.

Nervous about walking the Camino de Santiago

The question was:

When, if you were, were you afraid on the camino? How do you deal with it?
Just how much do your feet hurt?
How difficult is it?
How long does it take before it gets easier? A week? Two weeks? Does it ever get easier?

This question hit a nerve in the forum. More than 160 replies and 12 000 views (!). Read all about the fear of walking the Camino de Santiago here.
