Hello; I want to start from Vezelay in late April...to save weight I would rather not take a tent, but as I haven't much money, can't afford pricey hotels. So far I have no guide ( the CSJ handy guide which would tell albergues and kilometers...love em!... aren't out yet) Does anyone know about availability of 'albergues' and hostals along the way which are cheap and frequent enough? In '08 I did the Camino Frances from Roncesvalles to Santiago- no tent, self cooking, 6 kilo pack. It was superb! I expect to have to pay more in France, but it won't be possible for me if it is TOO much more... feedback welcomed.
Anyone else starting from Vezelay in April?
Nan
