I plan to leave Madrid at the beginning of September 2018. Is anyone else walking at that time?

I have tentative plans but not shared with my husband yet as we said after finishing CF again last year that we would not walk the Camino again! However, tempted by the Madrid and bought a map covering it yesterday!

I expect to leave Madrid on 3rd September 2018. Might see you somewhere along the way. I have knee issues so won't be setting any speed records.

Like others, tentative plans for Madrid/Salvador/Primitivo in September
However... given that my wife and I arrived in Santiago yesterday from SJPP (my 2nd CdF) and head on towards Finisterre and Muxia in about 3 hours , I haven’t discussed these plans yet ;)

I would be interested to hear how to get from Finisterre to Madrid - all avenues I have tried seem extraordinarily convoluted and/or time consuming...

Hi. This thread is about walking from Madrid to Sahagun on the Camino de Madrid. I'm thinking that you're asking about how to travel from Finisterre to Madrid by bus/plane/train? The thing to do would be to get back to Santiago from Finisterre and then travel to Madrid. i know from experience that the train is fairly straightforward - about seven hours journey. Try the Rome to Rio website. Buen Camino.

I'm planning to leave Madrid on 31st Aug. I'll keep a look out for you :). I plan to "smell the roses" so maybe our paths will cross.

I found this map very useful as you can drill down to see the detail of any section as well as an overview of the route as a whole - https://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/en/relation/112925. Best of all though is the CSJ 'Pilgrim Guides: Camino de Madrid 2017/18' - superb value for £4 for the kindle ebook (it's available on amazon).

Now in Leon after walking from Segovia to Sahagun. The Camino France's is quite a shock to the system after the quiet of the Madrid route. In Sahagun was the first time I had to share the albergue with other. All the Albergue on the Madrid I had completely to myself and my own key. I was only able to use English twice, both time with ladies in supermarkets, for a few minutes.I enjoyed all ten days, very much. But Spanish is definetly essential in my opinion.

How did you like the route, Mike?
I like flat terrain or gently rolling hills what Camino de Madrid after Segovia really is (Tierra de Campos, like a Meseta) so that made this Camino very special to me.
