I must admit...I stopped and went back to the photo section for the CF and "rewalked" the Way from Sarria into SDC. Then I thought of where I was in my planning this time last year. The hubris, the confidence...truly, the pride goeth before the fall.
I am even more convinced than ever I will walk the Way again this year.

Beautiful photos Ivar - but not a gravelly rutted path in sight: no steep uphill dirt trails through canopied corriedors: no cowshit-and-mud lanes between barns and dry stone walled fields: no paths through Eucalyptus forests? You have sussed out the distance but the camino has hidden the true paths from you!
While that's obviously a personal decision I believe a solid business one.
I know of at least six times I ducked my head into a possible lodging location and, upon seeing a Compostela and sellos on the wall above the check in desk...I was sold!
I believe the same will ring true with your new adventure...sort of a "been there...done that...got the t-shirt" thing. By the way, don't forget to make a t-shirt part of the package for your walking tour folks. May a suggest a 50-50% cotton/poly pro so that it can easily dry when wet.
