- Camino(s) past & future
- September/October (2015) CF; October 2017 PC from Porto
I don't know where to post this question, but I'm hoping that some of you good pilgrims can respond here. I've walked the Camino Frances in 2015, at the age of 73, and the Camino Portuguese in 2017, at the age of 75. Now I have a deep desire to walk the British Coast to Coast Walk, the Wainwright Walk, 193 miles, and I'm wondering if any of you here have walked that walk, and specifically, how it compares in difficulty to the Camino Frances. My plan is to walk it alone in September of this year, when I'll be 76. I know that age is just a number, but still. I'm committed, with a plane ticket and all my bookings, for 21 days, which are necessary. I'm taking a week longer than most do when they make the walk. But it's going to be hard all the same, and I'm getting very nervous. How does it compare to crossing Pyrenees, trekking down to Zubiri, climbing in and out of river valleys and climbing to Cruz de Ferro, and to O'Cebreiro? Looking at blogs and photo and video blogs, it looks very daunting. It would help to hear of others who have done both and feel that I can do this at the age of 76. Thanks.
