Frances (Finisterre) 2017. Via dl Plata 2018. Portuguese 2019.
This is my first substantive post on the forum although I have been an avid fan for a number of years & each Sunday enthusiastically look forward to perusing the weekly email.
I want to begin by thanking with gratitude every person who contributes to the forum ... Ivar, the moderators, those who post questions or thoughts, & all those who respond. I have learnt so much, both from both the practical & spiritual (is that the 'right' word?) viewpoints.

I will not be walking this year, (I'm an Aussie from Perth), but am optimistic about being able to return to the Camino beginning in the 2022 northern hemisphere Spring. Here's my Camino Plan for 2022-23:
Spring 2022 - Camino Frances. I have already walked the Frances (my first camino) but thought it's the right time to return to this route because it is likely to have the most infrastructure for pilgrims. Also, I'll be walking with a newbie & I believe that the Frances with it's history, albergues, churches, etc is the best route to experience the totality of the Camino 'experience'. I think that in 2022 there will be substantial pilgrim numbers due to pent-up demand, & because it's a Holy Year, so I will start from St Jean in early April to minimise the competition for beds.
Autumn 2022 - Camino Norte/Primitivo. Start from Biarritz airport, onto the Norte at Irun & divert onto the Primitivo after Villaviciosa. I'm thinking this combination will be a nice contract between the coast & mountains. Commence in late August or early September to have warm weather while near the coast & to minimise the chance of snow in the mountains.
Spring 2023 - Camino Levante. I greatly enjoyed the Via de la Plata & want to do another of the quieter caminos. Start from Valencia or Alicante (advice please) mid-March to avoid the extreme heat in southern & central Spain.

Three caminos in a year may be ambitious but I'm currently healthy & fit. The clock is ticking! Comments please.

Nice to have you with us. We live in Sydney and were going to walk the Bibbulman about now as a compensation for not doing a camino, but you know what happened there. Good luck with your itinerary. One suggestion - check out the Lana. It also starts from Alicante but has more manageable stages. You might even see us on it. Anyway, buen camino.

Very ambitious - I wish you well. I'm from Brisbane, and kinda hoping to head to the Via de La Plata after Anzac Day. Time will tell.
Will you be ok with the 90 day Schengen visa with all those Caminos?

Looks like a great plan! Let's hope we get to the 80% vaccinated so that our borders open up (I'm from Melbourne, in lockdown 6.0). My wife and I did an epic walk from Switzerland, where she was born to SdC in 2018, 2178km, 133 walking days, and in Spain we walked the Norte, starting from Hendaye/Irun on 3 September. We didn't do the Primitivo, but we went down to Oviedo, and then back up to the Norte. The weather was very pleasant, and it's only in October that it started getting wet.

Will you be ok with the 90 day Schengen visa with all those Caminos?
We're dual nationals, so we didn't have any issues with the 90 day Schengen rule. I'm assuming you're returning to Perth (stands for Perfect Earth 😄 ) in between each Camino?

Buen Camino!

I spent my first 58 years in Sydney. Been in Perth since 2014. I've been walking the Bibbulmun N2S bit by bit over the last few years & am now about halfway (482 km completed). Doing the next section, Donnelly River to Pemberton (101 km) from the 13 September. It's an awesome walk!

Yes, coming back to Perth in between so I believe the Schengen rule won't be an issue.

I intend to fly into Biarritz then walk two moderate days to Irun. Evidently the first day on the Norte, Irun to San Sebastion is tough.

I will be SLOW walking the Frances from SJPP starting on April 1, 2022. If you start after that, you will catch up to me. Enjoy your Caminos.
Buen Caminos!
I'll probably start on 7 April to, hopefully, cross into Spain via the Napoleon route.

Great plan Streetfood. We are also hoping for a Spring return to family in France and a Camino (somewhere).
Re quieter Caminos, we haven’t walked the Levante, but v much enjoyed both the Mozarabe (finishing in Merida which you will remember from VdeP) and the Madrid route.
Enjoy!

Welcome out of the closet, pilgrim!

I am also one of those who are just waiting to return to my Camino.

I think your choice of taking your friend on the CF is perfect - It is a true experience! I will be doing it again as soon as I feel confident, regarding this idiotic pandemic.

Buen Camino to you and your friend, who I suppose will be quite impressed: I hope he will take in the Camino spirit & experience as well. But then again, he is lucky to have an experienced peregrino to assist him.

Hi alexwalker & thanks for the heads up. The 'he' you refer to is actually a 'she'! In 2019 I walked the Camino Portuguese from Lisbon to SdC. Helen joined me in Porto. It was her first Camino & she loved the experience. But as you probably know the Portuguese is entirely different from the Frances & at this time I think Helen would greatly benefit from walking the Frances. Hence, along with the potential difficulties brought about by the pandemic, it's the right time to return to the Frances.

Also from Perth, I'm still 'sitting on the fence' for a Camino return!!
Have a friend on the Bibbulum at present from Collie to Albany and absolutely enjoying it and as I'd thought about it too for a September start, now I'm a bit sorry my plan didn't go ahead.
Never mind...while on a wildflower trip 2 weeks ago and visiting New Norcia en route, I thought about the Camino Salvado💡 from Subiaco to New Norcia, so yes.....starting 19th September for 8 days.
Buen Camino on the Bibbulum 👣👣

Hi, @Streetfood,
Walk to you drop, I say! Looks like a great plan. I absolutely loved the Levante, and found that an early May start was the perfect time to catch bright green fields and lots of wildflowers. Nothing wrong with an earlier start, of course, but I think historical patterns of rain make March through early April rainier. But of course you never know.

Wishing you wonderful camios, Laurie

My thought, (of course I could be totally wrong!), is that there will be a huge number of non-european peregrinos busting to return ASAP. Hence the early April start.

I started in Valencia on May 3, 2013. I have a blog:


Surely it is out of date, but the route is pretty much the same, so the pictures should give you some idea of the conditions. It is a great camino, lots of wide open spaces and castles!

I don’t know if you like doing detailed planning, but a bunch of us participated on a detailed planning thread that went stage by stage, with prospective pilgrims asking questions and some veterans responding. It is long but was a very fun distraction while homebound during covid.

You have a funny name.
You’ll be one of the one million Aussies dying to get out next year ( et moi) and half a million wanting to do a Camino, a quarter of them the Frances. I dare not hope but luck being kind to me I’ll be on the Frances too at that time, if ….. You brave lucky optimistic good chappy… what a nice thing to be doing with someone you enjoy being with. My first was the Frances, started in early May 2017. Eons ago. Anyway, sounds like a plan and a good one. Greetings and all the best from a fellow pilgrim and fellow countryman on the other side.

I know exactly how you feel. The luxury of aging is the ability to regain our time and to use it as we see fit. The agony of aging is knowing the clock is ticking and things are without a doubt finite. So you go and you do 3 great caminos. I am off to do the VDLP in October and unless they close the country down I will be in Sevilla. Just talked to some wonderful Aussie friends I met in 2019 and we are going to chat soon about an early spring 2022 Camino. They were supposed to walk the VDLP with me this year. Buen Buen Camino

I am worn out already, thinking of the plane journeys between each camino. I come from Scotland, and Australia was my first dream place, though I have yet to realise that dream. Ireland caught me first...
I wish you the very best for each of your coming caminos, and health and strength to complete each one of them.

Hi It56ny, You'll love the VdlP. A less travelled route, (but still well marked) so there is a big sense of adventure. Lots of wide open spaces with amazing vistas!

If you think the Vdlp has wide open vistas, just wait till you hit the Levante! And not just plain old wide open vistas — those wide open vistas often include a castle on a hill in front of you!

Hi Streetfood, good luck next year, my wife and I are hoping to restart our yearly walks in April as well, probably the del Norte at this stage. Your plans sound excellent, my only concern when I read your proposed itinerary was how would you fit all that in with the Schengen zone visa restrictions. The old 180 day drama that pops up on these pages a lot.
