    Advice on starting VdlP

    Hi, I walked in 2017 & 2019. I started both times in mid April . I found it to be the perfect time to go . Both times , quite by accident I arrived during Semana Santa . It was a nice start to my Camino. Next year Semana Santa runs from 28 March to 3 April .

    Bed Bugs Bercianos del Real Camino at Santa Clara Albergue

    Maybe as C Clearly explained.... my wife may have been bitten but is not alergic. This makes sense, as we have walked 11 Caminos and I have had bed bugs 3 times and she hasnt ( but maybe she has been bitten as suggested above and just hasnt known ?)

    Hi... I walk in 2017 starting mid April. I am in Seville again now to start on Friday which is roughly the same dates for my 2nd via de la Plata. It is the perfect time weather wise. But at any time of year I would always take a poncho that goes over you and the pack. You only need 1 wet day...

    Via de la Plata in April?

    My thoughts are exactly as Peregrina2000. I walked VDLP 2 years ago and loved. Just start walking. Nothing to worry about. Just nice days of walking and Albergues at the end of the day just like any other Camino. Have walked 7 Caminos and maybe VDLP is my favourite. I hope to be there again in...
