    Starting in the middle...?

    The walk from St Jean to Roncesvalles is very impressive, I agree, and if you have the time which I think you do I would recommend it.

    Camino in September

    Hi Lana, I've walked the Camino in September and found that a light fleece was enough to keep warm. Although it can get a bit chilly, and sometimes wet, in the morning in Galicia so a light water proof would be advisable, as well as a water proof rucksack cover. I hope you enjoy your walk...

    Arm warmers, leg warmers & sun protectors

    Or why not wear a t shirt and shorts, depending on the time of year of course, and if it gets too cold, put on a light fleece? If you brought everything you 'needed' in your rucksack you wouldn't get too far. Probably has it's uses elsewhere though.

    Walking in August and September.

    Hi Rúna, Don't worry, will meet lots of like minded people along the way. The Albergue in Roncevalles, your first stop on the Spanish side of the Pyrenees, sleeps over 150 people so you should have no trouble meeting a few people there. Have fun :)

    Walking in May 2010

    I've walked the Camino Francés and the Camino Portugues in May and had a great time. The weather is perfect for walking and the country side is beautiful as are the sunrises and sunsets. Although it does rain a bit once you reach Galicia, just like home (Ireland) in many ways, lots of the green...
