Go and do...because life won't wait

Having done the Frances twice and going back again in late June, i will be taking a slow walk this time not because of my age, but because there is much to see, and I intend to see most of it this trip,(have made a list of the good places) also may have a few days rest here and there to have a good look around the big towns etc my last two Caminos I ended up rushing don't no why but I did, so this time will be having a nice long stroll a few good meals and a good few San Miguel largers, along the way Cheers to all you Pilgrims and as they say Buen Camino
So for those of you that have already done the Camino from Saint Jean, how long did it take you? I know they say 35 days about but I’m wondering if that is an average? Do people finish it in lease days? I planning for 6 weeks vacation, but not sure about how long to plan on walking.
Luvmt, you can take a little as 25 day as long 42 days it is actually your call depending on how far you walk each day when you want to rest etc. ..... It is all up to you the guide books put it in stage for 35 days but you can take 70 ..... enjoy, "smell the roses" but definitely don't make it a race of time <3 Buen Camino
