Camino(s) past & future
CF april 18.. CP sep 18.. CF april 2020
When researching my first camino I heard that when starting out, many pilgrims chose sangria. Not wanting to go against tradition I got off the plane and went straight to a bar.. three sangria-soaked days later (I was averaging 3km a day) I happened to be discussing how difficult the Camino was with a local in one of the many drinking establishments..
It turns out that when starting out, many pilgrims choose SARRIA.. needless to say, armed with this new information my distances improved significantly and the views were much less blurry..
Hope this helps
Hugs

I had a similar issue with the baggage transfer service! My first few days on the Camino seemed very cramped and the views were terrible, but once I started walking instead of riding inside my backpack in that van, it was much nicer....

Glad you got into good habits quite quickly. However, an ice cold peregrino gasolino or two (pint of beer, good for atleast 5 more fast kms.) on a hot day after a few hours of good walking is never wrong.
