When are you planning to head off?
Oh, I wouldn't be making plans. no. not me. Merely researching.

Since I have already walked the Levante, it would be the Lana;). It is on my short list for my next long Camino.
It's on my short list for a short camino! One month to Burgos, a perfectly acceptable stopping place.

You are incorrigible!
That's what my father-in-law says. It's never felt like a compliment ;-) (but he does love me dearly)

@Donna Sch secretly hoping next year. Having only just got back from seven weeks away I don't think I can swing my original plan of "fifty days on the camino for my fiftieth birthday" - when I made that plan I didn't know I would be going this year! And I'd want a long one to be in spring merging into summer - I just cannot imagine proposing I take off for a second stroll less than six months after this one.

I've done them both. The Levante ('17) had a few pilgrims that I ran into periodically but on the Lana ('18) I never met another pilgrim except for the times it paralleled/joined the Levante. The Lana also had some areas of marked out signs and questionable route markings. The Levante had more interesting towns like Avila and Toledo but the Lana was a beautiful and very solitary walk. I recommend a better than average knowledge of Spanish and a good gps system on your phone for both of these routes.
