2002-2019 Via Podiensis, Camino Frances, Via de la plata, Camino del Norte, Camino Primitivo, etc.
Just to mention what we did next! We walked from Sahagun to Leon and then from Leon on the Camino Salvador to Oviedo to see the Camara Santa. Then we had planned to try the Primitivo. Spain was unfortunately having some sort of "cold wave" in late October so we took the train back to Leon and walked the Frances to Santiago. The Frances was, as always, very special but we had to adjust to being with others again!
We were touched by the quiet kindness and generosity we encountered on the "Madrid". The people we met there were unfailingly kind and helpful.

Best to all,

Hi Kevin,

I know it's been a year now since you did the Camino Madrid, but did you make a blog of your trip? Or did you post elsewhere comments on your Camino? I like the sounds of this route, especially for next year when the Frances is sure to be very busy, and would like to read some more first-hand accounts of the journey.

Thanks, alipilgrim
