LIVE from the Camino CF day 1, off to a great start!

The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
Left Saint Jean this morning at 7am. Got to Roncesvalles just before 1:30. Weather was clear and beautiful!
I didn't pre book, and was able to get a bed. I did hear they were all full by 4pm though.
Very happy with my first day on the Camino!
Did you go the way of Napoleon?
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

Hi SF Hiker,
Wow, that's amazing, are you a daily hiker?
My husband and I are scheduled to hike the Same route on May 1st. My question to you is which route did you take? I heard the Napoleon route was closed due to snow. Many thx

I took Nepoleon. It's open but the few days before I started there was heavy rain and visibility was nothing! I've met several people that went over the day before me and they say it was terrible!
