Camino Frances completed!!


Time of past OR future Camino
Late April
Just after 9am this morning I turned the last corner of the Camino Frances and stood in front of the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela!!
It's been 33 days since I left Saint Jean Pied de Port and it felt very surreal to be standing at that end point.
This was an awesome adventure and looking back, I can't think of anything bad to say about it. Even the multiple days of rain this past week, thick mud going up O'Cebreiro or the minor shin splint i developed before Leon can bring up bad thoughts. This entire walk has been a fantastic experience and I'm so glad I took the time to do it.
Thanks to everyone on here for your support, suggestions and experience. This forum is an excellent tool and companion for new pilgrims!
Buen Camino!
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

...and ship it to Santiago for storage. You pick it up once in Santiago. Service offered by Casa Ivar (we use DHL for transportation).
The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
