Too many caminos to list in the permitted 100 characters!!
Let us know how you get on, Beeman.
I, too, had hoped to walk the Primitivo this year, from Oviedo: sadly my years are catching up on me and I cannot walk the distances that once came so easily to me.
Blessings from England .....

A few and hopefully lots more. See signature.
Buen Camino @Beeman; wishing you well on your journey.

If you meet any German pilgrims with the Raimund Joos guide, I recommend taking photos of the maps for the Lugo-Friol-Sobrado variant. You probably won't find that information in the other guides or maps. And in case case you haven't already seen it, there's also lots of useful information on this thread.

The good folks at the Casa Benigno in Friol hand out maps and route descriptions in various languages for the stretch to Sobrado dos Monxes. Couldn't find any one in Lugo offering the same help. Indeed at the Camino Centre and at the Muni Albergue we were assured that there was no such thing as the Camino Verde.

In June this year way-marking was excellent from the foot-bridge across the river just upstream of the swimming pool in Lugo to Friol with one exception, just before Mera do not be tempted by the attractive looking path rising to your right through the pine trees, stay close to the river and the green arrows soon reappear.
