    Wow what a thread. I think anybody who has done any camino can return to their daily life with a sense of accomplishment and quiet confidence due to the personal journey and experience of self reflexion. I feel equally amazed by a person in a...

    I just recommend the last summer because I had wonderful weather, always found a place to stay ( mostly public or municipal albergues) and ran into some lovely walking companions. The region is extremely hilly and I think the coast is prone to...

    If you walk the beaches on a sunny sommer weekend it will be very crowded (as any beach). Walking 5km away between some villages might look deserted. Juli/August is busy with pilgrim and "turigrinos" and pure tourists. All compete for a place to...

    If you have a choice I would always advice to do the Norte in September/October instead of July/August. The tourists have gone home and most of the time the weather is nice the beginning of autumn. Most of the time. It is unpredictable here...

    Hi Andy, I'm planning on doing the Norte and Primitivo combo in 2022. Have you written a report on this forum or can you give us some words of wisdom? I'm planning on walking in May/June because it fits in better with work. Any thoughts? Thanks M

    It is a great idea! Go in late August into September. Norte then switch at Oviedo to the Primitivo. Fantastic combo. Did it last year.

    Hi Telboyo, interesting read, its not often you see a negative post on this forum but I did relate to your story and we probably have a similar history and experience on the Camino. I spent over 10 years in a Police Force in Australia, so...

    Mark T17 replied to the thread Running the Camino.
    I love running and have completed a few half marathons over reasonably flat terrain, but if you start in SJPDP then you need to average more than 60km per day. I did it in 12 days on a bike when I was afforded the luxury of coasting down a few...

    Hi, I've been crunching the numbers and April/May/June is probably the only time I can get 6 weeks off work anyway. I think if I start in early May and finish in June, starting on the Norte then switching to the Primitivo, the numbers shouldn't...
