    How hot is too hot to walk?

    Just noticed it's looking super hot in central Europe and NE Spain this week, with 40degC forecast for Pamplona. This is unusual for June and pilgrims might not be expecting conditions that make walking potentially dangerous.

    Temperatures in late September and early October

    I am planning on walking the San Salvador and the Primitivo in late September and early October. I have previously walked the Frances and the Portuguese and was fine with just a silk liner into early October. Will that be the case with these Caminos or should I plan on a light sleeping bag?
