    hello
    I will have 14 days next fall, have done Leon to Santiago and Porto to Santiago and looking for another option that has a decent infrastructure. Considering St Jean to Burgos or Ferrol to Santiago and then onto Finnesterre and Muxia. Any advice, or other suggestions?
    Thanks

    I only have experience of the CF.
    But for me it would be start in St Jean and walk for 14 days.
    If you could squeeze an extra couple of days I'd aim for Fromista and get a taste of the Meseta :)
    If only 14 days. St Jean to Burgos. (Castrojeriz if you can) But not sure about transport out of there.

    Looks like you have the bug. If you want to walk the part of the Camino Frances that you haven't already done then, with the CF's increasing popularity, I think you may be happier to do it sooner than later. Brierley's guide has 12 stages between Logrono and Leon and you have 2 days travel time. If you think that sometime in the near future you can get 3 weeks off then save the CF until then. How about the Aragonese? With any left over days you could continue along the CF.
