The big map o the Caminos de Santiago

  • Another silly question from the newbie . Has anyone ever done the camino barefoot? Even part of the way / or specific areas ? I love walking barefoot in the rain .
    Portugal...may a Pilgrim(on completion of of the SJDP) walk on to Portugal or does one need to have a visa to do so?
    Will I have to get a new SIM card for my mobile phone when I arrive in Europe or can I use my South African one?
    I arrive in Paris on the 18th (A m) and take the overnight train to SJDP . I intend to walk immediately after I'm done with the Pilgrim Office. I have not had a problem with jet lag yet, but of course there is always a first time. My camino starts (officially?) on the 19th. What happens if am indeed jet lagged on the day?
    A silly question perhaps, but important to me: is there any wildlife along the camino frances? Meaning birds, small ground animals, rabbits? That sort of thing? Oh, also, what is the Pyrenees crossing(more or less) like at the time I will be walking - around last week September, weather-wise? I think after reading so many threads I am prepared(mentally) for all eventualities. Ha ha, famous last words.
    Black squirrels (melanistic red) after Melide come to mind. The problem being the racket made by the many groups of pilgrims on route. The earlier stages are quieter. For wildlife the less travelled caminos are best.
    I will be doing the Camino Frances in September 2018. This is a spiritual undertaking for me which I'm doing solo. I'm not nervous about my very first camino and quite confident that all will be okay. My real concern is BLISTERS! I seldom miss a Charity Walk here in South Africa and really struggle with blisters. Any ideas on how to minimise these if not avoid them altogether? Thanks.
