A French pilgrim was the 100th French visitor to the albergue in Avila which opened its doors just six months ago. 42 per cent of visitors are Spaniards are, ahead of Dutch, French, Germans and Italians. There were also Slovaks, Portuguese and Mexican.
82 percent made the journey on foot, while 18 people did so by bicycle.
The Association of Friends of the Camino de Santiago in Avila is "very satisfied" because "what seemed a dream is becoming a reality, and that the Camino de Levante and Southeast, almost forgotten in time, is ultimately emerging from oblivion and is becoming a haven for seekers of the true path, away from the crowds of other routes. "

Hello again Andy. If I have calculated correctly you will be leaving Valencia on or about the 10th of September or thereabouts. If you fall over a computer on your way could you send a word or two to the forum? I hope it works out well for you, and our thoughts will be with you.

Cheers,

Kevin and Kari

Thanks Kevin,

yes, I'm planning to start walking from Valencia on September 8th. I'll certainly post some thoughts when possible - I'll also be doing some sort of blog as all the people here who are generously letting me walk through Spain for two months want to know how I'm doing. I'll post details of this before I set off,

That would be much appreciated Andy. The blog sounds like a good idea as well. Kari has five weeks free starting sometime in October, but that would be about a month too late. September is the best time for a six or seven week walk, in our opinion. Best of luck mate, and sorry about the fourth Test. We'll see how it goes in the fifth!

Cheers,

Kev

I can highly recommend this albergue. I stayed there last April. Though small, it is well equipped and the people in charge are extremely friendly and helpful. It is situated just beyond the famous city walls, close to the path out of the city.

The albergue is extemely easy to find. Unfortunately I could not get in as the phone number posted on the gate was not answered all day. This was a problem occasionally on the Levante at this time of year when there a very very few pilgrims.
