Hi gracethepilgrim, I am not sure the Invierno will give you a "few more pilgrims" to interact with, at least not yet. With the numbers that low still, I don't think you are likely to find others on the trail, because there are always a few groups who bump up the numbers but travel together on the same day, so the numbers aren't spread out.Thanks Laurie - you are such a wealth of info for us all. After the CPI I thought my ‘next’ camino would be one with a few more pilgrims to interact with. After reading the posts on the Invierno it sounds perfect as a hybrid with VdlP (to Astorga). The only issue for me will be managing those few days on the CF with ‘so many’ pilgrims
I was thinking of another spring departure from Sevilla, 2017
Hi, Pilar, you are as of now one of the few people walking the Invierno who plans to use the guide, at least that I know of. It'd be a great help if you could note corrections, additions, updates, etc. I'll be doing another version in late 2016, so your timing is perfect! Thanks, Buen camino, LaurieGoing in September. Thanks for the guide!
Couldn't agree more. The first time I walked it, the tourist office gave me a little brochure and than regaled me with warnings about how dangerous it was. Total malarkey! Not only the tourist office, but the hospitaleros in the albergue were also quite ominous in their warnings. Crazy, I surely hope that is changing.Almost three pilgrims a day. I hope they can deal with the flood of cash. The Ponferrada tourist office needs to promote it a bit more...
Nice to hear that. Xagoaza albergue is really very nice place but the incline to there is a killerBarco de Valdeorras will be building an in-town albergue. Not sure what that means for the future of Xagoaza, but that's one good bit of news. True, it would be much more welcome at other places, but maybe the snowball is starting. Their beautiful Xagoaza albergue gets about 20 pilgrims a year -- not surprising since it's a few km out of town, off the Camino, and Barco is SUCH a nice place to spend an afternoon!
I don't have an image of sheep to post, Laurie, but it's probably same herd mentality.What's going on?!
I was one of them. I met one group of 5 Spaniards who were only going as far as Monforte de Lemos, a solo Spaniard and a solo Italian who I only saw once.Hi, Sheffield James,
... in August there were only 68 Invierno pilgrims registering in Santiago!
