Hello wonderful people!

Writing for some advice. I have 2 weeks off…
Had initially planned on going wild camping for a week in Norway, but recently feeling like I should do my second camino (Camino Primitivo).
Need some advice. Is it worth doing a week of each? Or should I just embrace the full two weeks of Camino life?

Im up at 02:30 and can’t make up my mind.

Thank you

Ix

If I was in your position I would do 2 weeks on a Camino.
Heat don't bother me, too. Walked in 38° C in 2019 between Puente de la Reina and Los Arcos. Not the most pleasant walk but doable and very quiet on the last 15km ;)

The idea of walking in 38C is a horror show for me. But we all have our own preferences and likes. I would take walking in -3C any day over +38C! But I do agree walk one camino for sure for the two weeks. Given our temperature preferences I doubt we will be crossing paths on the camino any time soon!!! But who knows???:)

That's a good one!
Maybe I have to overthink my preferences. After my heart-attack 11 weeks ago, I started to sweat a lot more than before in workout. And I mean a lot!

The sports / training in rehab was torture because of this, only the water-gymnastics did well :D.

As far as I can foresee it, I will walk the CP in fall. Less temperature, more pilgrims and maybe more flights to choose from.

I hope you get back really soon to the peak of health. Now the earliest I walk is starting out about Oct 20. This year I will start (weather permitting) in Somport on the Aragones. Haven't figured out what I will do after it joins with the CF. I will stay on the CF most probably until Logrono. Last year I walked the VDLP and started about October 18th thinking it would be ok from Sevilla. It was still over 30+ every day until almost the end of the month. It is a completely different vibe walking later in the year. The deeper in the year you go the more different the feel. But still wonderful.

Another option: walk St Olav’s Way. You can combine your camping with pilgrimage walking and the temperature may be easier to deal with.

I asked the same question a few months ago. I had planned to walk 15 days on the Frances route or I could do the Primitivo. I waffled several times and then a wise pilgrim on this site said to follow my heart. So I did, I canceled all my reservations, bus tickets and set off for the Primitivo last March 27, 2022. It was the best decision. I walked with amazing people and finished with them in Santiago. We had a parting dinner and are still in contact. I would have hated to have to leave early after having met some great people.......Follow your heart.
