    sleeping bag in April/May

    Hi all, my husband and I are planning to walk the Camino del Norte beginning in late-April. We're leaning toward bringing sleeping bags but I'm waffling because I've heard very strong opinions on both sides.

    min/max temperatures, rainfall/snow by month over the camino frances

    I am looking at my first Camino Frances and could start mid October this year or early spring (start late mid-April) next year. I was planning to start in St. Jean. I recall seeing a link to a historical weather site for Spain but can't find the link now. Any good sources?

    The Meseta in spring

    I've just spent a glorious week crossing the vast plains between Burgos and Leon. When I walked the meseta in 2012 it was late September, post harvest, and the land was tired, brown and golden yellow. In spring 2016 it was a fresh green world. This short post on my blog gives a flavour of what...

    Weather; thinking of October, November or April?

    I'm wondering if we, on this forum, are doing people a disservice by encouraging them to walk off season. Maybe we need to do more to stress the intemperate climate that is northern Spain, and particularly the potential for extreme weather conditions. Obviously some people get lucky and have...
