    From Paris to SJPD

    The SNCF connect app is very useful to have for options of train travel in france. You can search for some options with start and end points. I am travelling in July straight from CDG to Bordeaux.

    What do you do when you cannot walk anymore?

    This is so great this thread and all the comments are thought provoking and i am agreeing with alot of the comments ! Luckily I have 10 days for Spain in September and hopefully a short camino. I do love Spain so much..if I am not walking I can always train or bus. Meanwhile i can walk locally.

    In two days I have to decide whether to continue on the Norte or go to the primitive all suggestions?

    We stayed on the Norte and used alburges almost all the time on that section. But is was 10 years ago and there was good amount of accomodation. It has smaller towns.

    New Pilgrim, looking for post-Camino ideas

    We had exactly the same idea after our first camino ...what to do with a week! I wish we had planned where to go as we had post camino dithers for a few days. In the end we made a snap decision to fly to Seville then on to Granada for the alhambra and then up to Barcelona where our flight was...

    As you plan caminos, don't forget this one!

    Thank you for posting about this walk. In late sep 2018 I will have 10 days to spend in Spain and I was thinking of either doing a short Camino or spending some time in Zaragoza. Now I can plan to combine both.
