Doing the Camino in 2005

I first did the Camino in 1999 from Roncevailles to Santiago. I knew nothing about it, other than my friend Matt saying it would be really fun and cheap. I had no idea what I was in for, but I was sold on it. I did it again in 2001 (the same route). I did it again in 2002 with my buddy Jim from St. Jean to Finistere. That was by far my greatest experience.
I am getting ready for my fourth Camino this summer. I have about five weeks worth of time. I am thinking about going further into France, closer to Le Puy or going from the Arles route. I am still undecided. The idea of the mountain challnge to Roncesvailles is appealing to me, but so is the idea of a different path to Puente la Reina.
No matter what, I still want to go on to Finistere again. To me, there is no more fitting an ending to the Camino than walking to the rocks on the ocean, burning you clothes and having a drink at the lighthouse.
If anyone has any opinions as to which route is more interesting I would appreciate it. Also, the Confraternity of Saint James guide books are great!

Different Route Ideas

Don't know when you're going, but I am heading out for my first camino in May. Since I have never been the northern Spain, I am starting in Barcelona and working my way over (planes, trains, automobiles style) to San Sebastian and going from there.
