Arrived in Ferrol yesterday. Walked to Neda this morning and on my way to Pontedeume for the evening. Many pleasant and helpful people along the way. It’s beautiful and relatively quiet.
It's good to hear this. Keep us posted as I hope to do this 'soon' Buen Camino Maggie

Glad to hear all is well. I just made the decision to postpone my camino - was booked to start in one week. <sigh> Buen Camino to you-
Thanks. Sorry to hear you will have to start at another time. For future reference, Albergue in Betanzos is very nice.

Hi, Maggie.
This has been enjoyable so far. I decided to stop in Betanzos today, so just 21KM, but the albergue is really nice.

DOTC,

Glad your Way is good, I enjoyed the CI last June, particularly enjoyed Betanzos. Safe travels, Buen Camino.

Do you think you'll be able to complete your Camino Ingles? The guidance now is not to start a Camino, so my soon Camino Ingles will probably not be started soon and maybe not in 2020 but I hope still possible. I'm taking note albergue in Betanzos is good. These tips are so useful. Enjoy and Buen Camino

Many, various, and continuing.
Good thing the Ingles is a "quick" camino. Hopefully Dan made it to Santiago "under the wire!" We're spending our weekend getting pilgrims OFF the Camino Frances and Madrid and on their road back home.
Pilgrims still wandering around on Monday may be picked up by police -- all non-essential travel is banned starting at 8 a.m.

I finished today - de Burma to Santiago.
the city is quiet. I spoke to a priest I know from my other Caminos and he is taking pictures around the city without many tourists.

I arrived today - now wondering if/how Iberia will reroute my flight back to the US.

Good luck getting touch with Iberia, their phones are jammed and the online access is virtually off line. Yesterday, I tried to cancel flight I have in May and the message was call back when it is closer to your departure date. I would suggest going to the airport to get a new ticket. There is no way out and the border with France is going to be closed as of Monday.

Planning to start the Camino Frances from St Jean at the end of May (2020).

Still time to get a train to France tomorrow, maybe?

I'm slightly confused
I thought there are no borders in EU🤨
Poland has closed its borders to all foreign nationals. There are borders, you just don't usually notice them.

“The Schengen Borders Code provides Member States with the capability of temporarily reintroducing border control at the internal borders in the event that a serious threat to public policy or internal security has been established.” Frequently done in the past when there was a terrorist threat but only locally and sporadically and for a short time, nothing of the magnitude we see now.

I don’t know about any official border closure France/Spain - no time to read ... - but several countries did so yesterday. Poland closed their border with Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Lithuania, in principle only goods are allowed into Poland.

Edited to add: Poland also temporarily stops all international travel by train and air. So you can't get out either. Quiet airports, huge traffic jams at the terrestrial borders (some people are exempted, some people are trying their luck). I don't know about the situation in other Schengen countries.

Anyway ... anyone still on the Camino Ingles is far away from any land borders.

Please, do bear in mind that restrictions are already in place.
