I don't have specific dates , but plan on the beginning of September .
I'm thinking of changing my plan, just walk from Barritz to st.jean. I didn't walk the Napoleon route when I did the camino in 2013. So thought I would do that. The vasco seems remote, I only speak English not many pilgrims. So I'm a little hesitant to walk it solo. Maybe I'm over thinking it. Have you walked the Camino before?
Buen Camino

I have not. This will be my first time overseas. I am looking for a combination of routes that will be challenging, both for its quietude and its exposure to the people. I am currently brushing up on my Spanish (from college) and learning what I can. I don't want to overplan, the spontaneity being part of the experience.

Thanks Cliff. It looks informative. Perhaps we can meet up in Burgos.

Buen Camino,
Davey

First, the Vasco is very Basque and the language is different than Spanish. I speak minimal Spanish and had no problem communicating on the this route. There are numerous decent size cities and the people very friendly. It is a solitary route from a Pilgrim standpoint. That said, up until Besain, the route is somewhat pedestrian. Then the route becomes more rural with the exception of Vittoria-Gaitz a very large city. This walk finishes in the wine country of Brinas and Haro before connecting with the Frances at Santa Domingo de la Calzada. I think this route has a nice mix with a gentle start, steep climb after Zegema and rolling hills down to Haro.

There is the option to connect in Burgos but I would not miss Granon, shortly after Santa Domingo de la Calzada, imo, the best communal Albergue on the Frances.

An enjoyable walk with good sideria, Txakoli (sp?) and good reds in Brinas/Haro.

Ultreya,

First I thought it was a typo, but since you've repeated it I have to add this: it's SantO Domingo... not SantA Domingo... (Santa is for female and Santo for male gender).
Also it's Vitoria/Gasteiz :)

Ultreia!

Spelling is not my strong suit. TE="KinkyOne, post: 309968, member: 25761"]First I thought it was a typo, but since you've repeated it I have to add this: it's SantO Domingo... not SantA Domingo... (Santa is for female and Santo for male gender).
