I´m leaving for Camino primitivo at the 21st of April. How´s the weather? Anyone who has good advice about refugios, anything special to add to the packing list? where in Oviedo can I get the pilgrim´s credencial? I´m all ears for all kind of advice =)

I walked the Primitivo in May this year (2009). Can be VERY wet or very warm! Varies from day to day in both Asturias and Gallicia. If you are walking from Oviedo, give the Albergue in Salas a miss. stay in Cornellana, then walk through Salas to Bodenaya. Alejandro's private albergue in Bodenaya should not be missed. Salas municipal albergue is, frankly, a dump! I stayed in the Hotel Soto behind the church. If I knew then what I know now, I would willingly have walked the extra 7 kilometres to Bodenaya!! The albergue at Pola de Allande was closed till mid May. The albergue in Grandes de Salime is not good, rumours of rats! - again I stayed in a Hostal.
