    This may be a little off topic but; I plan to start my journey 5 Oct out of St Jean, how much daylight will I have?

    I find myself in a position where I can walk the Camino in either October this year or May next Year. I have had to postpone the journey now twice and am becoming very frustrated but is starting out on the 5th October a bit ambitious?

    When to Go??

    Thanks for your inut omar, I have looked at some of the pictures of snow on the Camino and feel that March is not such a great idea. Enjoy your journey, as I read this forum and hear of all the people heading off now or very shortly I become more resolved that I must go in September. Rod
