    Will I be all alone on the coastal/senda litoral route?

    Hi Anna, I’ve walked the same route alone, but I was never really alone or felt alone. This was my first timer camino as well. The people you meet on the way are kind and helpful.

    combining the coastal /interior routes ?

    I walked early July and only had a bamboo liner. Most of the times it was too hot to sleep in it, but then I used it as a blanket. All the albergues I've slept had blankets in case you needed them. I only had rain for one day, and it was more like a drizzle. I used my lightweight runners jacket...

    Would You Go 8 or 9 with Teva's?

    I have both Salamon (X Ultra) and Teva sandals. Like you I have a wide foot, but I didn't buy the man shoes. The size of my shoes and sandals were both 39. :)

    combining the coastal /interior routes ?

    I really had no problem walking alone. I met several other pilgrims on the way and in the albergues, even on the variante Spiritual.:)

    combining the coastal /interior routes ?

    I walked all the way along the coast last summer. If you want any information you can send me a pm. Or just ask. It was my first camino and I loved every inch of it!!

At the end of the day my calves were almost twice as thick and I couldn't even point my finger at it. I...
