Advice needed for April 2009...

Hi
My friend and I are planning to do part of the Camino Frances starting April 5/6 2009. We are concerned about the weather and terrain conditions, so any advice as to where to start (as we will go back to do Pyrenees in warmer weather in the future). We have approximately 2 weeks for this trip (not to necessarily get to Santiago), and have looked at doing Burgos to Leon as the terrain seems flatter and the weather more reliable???? - but have also read that this is the most boring part of the walk.
Please advise!
Cheers
Chelsey

Hi Chelsey,
Welcome to the forum....

Boring??? I can't imagine using the term boring to describe any part of the Camino... but Burgos to Leon is only about a weeks walk. You could begin in Sahagún and go to Santiago, or you could begin in Sarria, and then continue on to Muxía and Fisterra - that would take you the best part of two weeks as well.

There are indeed so many choices. Much depends on your fitness levels, speed, desire to take detours, see more things, etc. There will be as many suggestions as there are Pilgrims. :) Whatever you decide to do, you will find all the information you need right here. Best of luck in your planning,
Buen Camino,

I enjoyed all of the Camino....the last 10 days or some from about Leon through Galicia was nice. Varied terrain and lots of green! Regardless, you probably can't go wrong wherever you begin. Buen Camino!

The meseta is boring terrain, but does offer the zen of counting your steps. You may even see a tree.
