For my first Camino, I'm dithering over starting from Astorga or Porto in September. Both are about the distance I want to walk, so that I can finish what I start in a reasonable period of time. I won't be in the best shape, so I'd prefer frequent opportunities to stop for the night without committing to long daily distances, especially the first week or so. Natural beauty and cultural interests are equally important to me and I'd prefer rural lanes to highway traffic. I doubt there is a bad choice, but can anyone who has done both routes offer pros and cons that might help me decide? Among all the guidebooks, I have yet to find the kind of overview that might help me choose.
