    Acclimate First?

    I’m walking now (Astorga to Santiago). I arrived from the states similar to you. If you have time, a day to adjust is helpful. I think both for the time change and just to get your mind sorted after probably losing a night’s sleep. I was very happy to have a day to take a closer look around...

    Mileage tracker

    Strava is very popular. The free version should do what you need. Also take a look at AllTrails. Users have created trail tracks for the entire route (Frances) and I think all the stages. I’ve used both for multi hour hikes or bike rides. I hope one of these work for you. Buen Camino! Sample...

    First Camino Which Option of These Two Would You Choose

    Thanks everyone for the insights. I’m looking to start in Astorga around the same time (Sept 22). If I get to Santiago with time to spare, a may continue on. But it’s my first Camino as well so I’m building in some slack. OP, perhaps our paths will cross!
