2016. Camino Primitivo
I began my Camino in the second week of April having previously walked in May and September. I was expecting the route to be quieter however there are a lot of pilgrims at the moment. I'm now in Ponferrada with about 8 days to Santiago. Albergues in the main stage ends are busy. The afternoon I arrived in Carrion de Las Condes all albergues were full and having walked over 30k that day the only options were to walk another 12k to the next town or check into a hotel. For any pilgrims about to begin, it might be an idea to use 'inbetween' stage albergues if the wave of people that you are with is fairly big.
