Remember that May 1 is Labor Day in France and Spain. Many shops and restaurants (and tourist offices!) will be closed. No problem with hotels and albergues, I suppose.

Hi Nononemeth,
I'm still figuring out my start date but I'm hoping to start in late April and will likely still be on the trail in May. I'll either be the slow guy just taking in the sights and enjoying the experience or if my competitive nature kicks in, the guy in massive pain trying to keep pace with some of the faster walkers. I'm not sure how much you've researched but I've read it can still be muddy out there in May so waterproof shoes is recommended so you're not walking around in wet shoes all day.

btw...how do you pronounce your username? I totally read it as 'no more meth' at first glance and was thinking to myself 'good for her'. lol

Will be starting in May where I left off last year at Burgos. I walked St. Jean to Burgos in May 2018 and it was wonderful. Good weather, not overly crowded, green trees and flowers in bloom. Great time for you to go. Enjoy!
we are doing Pamplona to Burgos this May 12th

ahahaahaha oookay, this just made my day. No, I'm not on meth never was never will. I'm Hungarian, and Nono is the short for Noemi, which is my first name, and my last name is Nemeth. Not as exciting anymore, right? :D

I will definitely be the slow one, wandering around and exploring everything off trail and get lost million times. I need the stories for my travelblog hahah

And thanks for the tip about the shoes, I'm about to buy them shortly, I need some test runs in it before the official start....

Yea that's why I tried to organize everything around this date. I thought starting the camino on my birthday would be kind of special. And definitely something to remember for the rest of my life....

Nice to meet you nono. I'm bobby. That makes a lot more sense for your username. Test runs for your shoes are definitely a good idea...but it looks like ull be a rubber tramp and not a leather tramp? (A reference from 'into the wild'... one of my all time favorite movies...) . If I don't see you on the trail, I'll keep an eye out for you in Finisterre.

Yea that's why I tried to organize everything around this date. I thought starting the camino on my birthday would be kind of special. And definitely something to remember for the rest of my life....
Great way to mark a major milestone...

(if you can't tell, i found ur travel blog. :) )
