Astorga to Santiago

Past OR future Camino
2018
I am wondering about the number of days to walk Astorga to Sarria, then how many from Sarria to Santiago. I know it depends on how many km to walk. I would like to stay under 29 km per day and in the mountains maybe 12-15 km.

We went from Morgade to Gonzar, Gonzar to Palais de Rey, Palais de Rey to Melide. At Melide, Phil came down with a bad case of food poisoning which ended our 45 day Camino that summer. Very disappointing that close to Santiago, but it happened.

I did Astorga to Sarria in 6 days. I plan to do in 5 days this year.
I did Sarria to Santiago in 3 regular days and one extremely short day. I plan to do in 3 days this year.

I am hoping to finish the Camino Frances in 28 days, but can slow down if I want/need to.

I came in the fall 2021 and tripped on an uneven pavement in Leon, which ended my journey. I feel your pain.
Last fall my husband did his own solo Camino stretch from Burgos to Caldazilla de los Hermanillos. He served 2 weeks there as a hospitalero and then continued on to Ponferrada. No time pressure and he is a late riser and a slow walker which can cause quite a bit of conflict when we are walking together...I am up and out the door early and don't like to dawdle. I prefer to arrive early at my next town so I can enjoy the afternoon.

No opportunity for a Camino family when you go slowly, but no need for one. It is like being a hospitalero where you meet new pilgrims every night and then they are gone in the morning.

We are currently on the CF, and having a similar experience as what you described in your last paragraph. We take a rest day every Sunday, so we have “weekly@ Camino families, with more-or-less new family members every week. Some still stay in touch with us, which is delightful!
