hi I was planning to do Camino Frances in April ,big change of plans now to late August ,what is most cost effective way to get from Santiago back to London ?
I am planning on taking my time as well ,am doing it it on my own and is first CaminoMy husband and I plan to leave SJPP on 28th April. We live at Mangawhai. I have walked it previously but Doug is a first timer. We are not sweet young things so will be taking it slow.
In early April it can be quite cold, especially in the open wind.Now that I've made my flight reservations for early April rather than late April I am (now that I thought about it over night) questioning whether I need to pack an extra layer. Looks like many-year average temps on the Meseta are 35F low and 55F high. Lovely temps for walking but now my light fleece (and rain gear when required) may no longer be enough. There goes my plan to pack my 28L bag!
I'll be packing rain pants this year plus poly/wool blend heavy leggings, fleece beanie and gloves. Guess the good news would be my pack weight maybe won't increase because I'll be wearing not carrying the cold weather gear.In early April it can be quite cold, especially in the open wind.
It will be HOT when walking in August.Well there's been a change of plans here ,a friend has decided she wants to come with me ,great news won't be doing it alone but she can't leave till August so we will do it then ,more time to get fit and I won't be spending the winter sitting around ,will be use to walking in the rain by the time we leave
Hi, I'm starting from SJPP on May 1, only walking as far as Orisson on the first day, on advice from experienced friends, so our paths may not cross, ... but then again. I wish you all the best, or as fellow pilgrims say, buen camino.
Thanks Thornly will have a look at it ,will be end of August ,maybe even September ,depends on cost of flights and when friend can goIt will be HOT when walking in August.
I would save the extra $$'s during winter delay to allow an upgrade in accommodation. There are a few places with pools and they will be required.
I would without doubt get the Miam Miam Do Do which shows how many rooms in each place and how many in each room, something that is very important in August.
I plan on starting on the 16th as well. What are your travel plans as I am hoping to find someone to split a taxis from Pamplona to St Jean on the late afternoon of the April 14th? Hope to see you on the trail.I plan to start my walk on April 16, 2016 from SJPDP to Santiago and beyond.
