    My stages on the Camino Primitivo

    Loved the Hospitales route but that descent at the end ,down into the village terrifies me. I have done it twice now and the second time was as bad as the first.

    VdlP - Walking 2021

    Nothing is definite but can't see us being allowed to leave Australia without one. I'm not keen on walking the Vdlp up to Salamanca in autumn although the Sanabres was great then. May have to leave it until April 2022. However I may try the Invierno and another, this late September if possible.🙏

    I have walked it twice in mid April and would love to repeat it this year but considering we are not being given our vaccination until March, not much hope. Personally can't walk when its too hot.
