      Thanks a lot everyone for sharing your thoughts! I will keep reading and researching but so far it seems that CF is most likely the right thing to do. Mostly because it is most likely to give me the feeling of "having done the Camino". I am not...

      I don't have advice about choosing your route, but I do want to share some thoughts about crowds, and reassure you that 95% of your day will be spent with only the wind in your ears. You might meet a lot of people, but this will likely be in the...

      First of all, I'm sorry for your loss. :-( I'll join in with adding, the CF is my go to. Also being inspired by the movie. I've been on the CF three times with different experiences each go around. I'm in the process of planning my forth, yes to...

      The CF has the most infrastructure tailored to the pilgrim - plenty of places to stay, easy way finding, lots of English spoken, etc. Be wary of your training, daily long distances with a loaded pack can create crippling tendinitis, etc even for...

      I like your clear thinking and appreciate your honesty. When you say "scenic" and "solitude" the last thing that comes to mind is the CF. But, of course, it is "the" Camino and you should probably experience it. What about the PCT? I'm sure that...

      I can't speak to the Camino del Norte, but as to the VdlP versus the CF, I would weigh them this way: 1. VdlP would suit your introversion, fitness, and general independence the best. 2. CF is the "iconic" camino and once you come home will...
