Hello

I will start my camino from Irun in 19 august, or 20 or 21...got a lot of time. Planning to take it easy, enjoy scenery, swimmin in ocean(maybe), having a few beers(definately)... First following the coastal route, then going to Primitivo and hopefully reaching Santiago end of sebtember. And if still got some spirit left, going also to the top...Finisterra. Last time, in 2007, was walking Camino Frances and it was great. Hope to see some of u people on the route. Maybe beer or two when we meet...

Hi Pete,

Have a great time. My wife and I just finished from Santander to Santiago following the Norte route all the way. I will say, if you are headed thru Gijon, arrange a room ahead of time. The Camino takes you downtown which is great, but the Albergue is way on the outskirts of town, you have to take a bus. Some people branch off to Oviedo before Gijon, some after.

Buen Camino,
Mark

I may be doing Camino-Norte but won't be starting until Sept 6th so I would be far behind you. I have seen some wonderful photographs.

You most likely will. I leave SJPP on the 6th and don't really have plans yet about getting to Camino Norte from there. Add that to the fact that I haven't trained at all and you will probably easily catch up to and then pass me!

Howdy,

We used the guide books from the Confraternity of St. James (London) written by Eric Walker. If anyone is planning on using these guide books, give a yell. I marked up my guide books and will be sending Eric Walker updated information. I would be happy to pass it on to anyone interested in the information. This would primarily be from Santander to Santiago, the El Camino del Norte route all the way.

Buen Camino,
Mark

Hi Mark,
I would be very interested in the guide book. Although I am only in the planning stage for doing the del norte next year in June, I am trying to get as much info as possible. I am at the end of the world, hihi, and still finding my way on the net as well. So, any help is fantastic. Even if you give me sites where I can find the info, will help.
Thanks Dorthe
