Starting 5th July Camino Invierno is there a wise pilgrim guide "Not app" ?. I believe Brierley is doing book but would prefer handy light book ( Sorry John ).

I believe Michael (@wisepilgrim) is working on his guide presently. The above link will also help. A number of veteran forum members have done the Invierno over the past couple of years and have compiled a very good 'crowd-sourced' guide.

I used it in 2018. Some takeaways about doing this in July:
  • It will be HOT, +40 celsius on some days.
  • It will be dry - as in relative lack of rain, it helps the grapes growing on slopes for 2,000 years
  • Places to stop, cafes, bars, etc. are fewer and farther apart than on some other Caminos
  • You may need to carry extra water at times.
  • Obtaining sellos can, at times, be like a scavenger hunt. Get creative. EVERY business has a rubber stamp with its name and address.
  • There are lots of up and down segments. While not very high, they are still up, down then repeat
  • It WILL be absolutely beautiful

Hope this helps.

Using Gronze via Chrome so it translates was helpful.

Woohoo Michael , Good one.
Take your brother along on this one unless you just want time to ‘be at one with nature and the universe ‘. (Which I very much enjoy ). You’ll find it nothing like the social atmosphere of the CF.
The guide in resources as mentioned by T2Andreo is fine. I took a copy with me. I think Laurie (Peregrina2000) has made her last update to it and possibly it will be by Wisepilgrim in the future.
I also had downloaded ‘maps.me ‘ and the gps tracks when I walked.
All the best
Buen camino
Annie

"Be at one" sounds good, he might do the ponferrada via Frances and meet in Santiago and walk to Muxia.
Is the Invierno that lonely one you blogged? If it is send me your link to blog.
All well here, of to Vienna on 11th it used to be called capital of the world if you ever go visit the hapsburg burial crypt Kaiserkruft.
Great city.

Nollaig Shona Annie.
