Now to find a boat, that may present a problem, but hey, no hill for a stepper, lol
Mendi. Interesting question. Did the Camino from England end in Henry VIII times?.The day King Henry VIII decided to create his own religion the Camino Ingles ended at least starting from English soil.
Luckily it´s back on its feet and growing.
Ondo Ibili !
The hills appear when you hopefully are recovered from seasickness in Ferrol or a Coruña.Now to find a boat, that may present a problem, but hey, no hill for a stepper, lol
This had us foxed as well. Especially the word 'immediately'!I just completed the CI last week.
With all respect to Johnny (his guide is invaluable) there is a major descriptive error that nearly brought me to tears on the long day last year (Betanzos to Bruma), which has yet to be corrected. It is very confusing, at least to me. On page 19 of his guide I have reproduced the paragraph with proposed corrections in parentheses:
KSO passing farm buildings to the Right hand side and after 800 meters there is a yellow arrow pointing straight ahead and immediately (actually, about 200 meters) see a waymark (waymark has been turned over face-down into a deep ditch. However, there is a yellow arrow painted on the pole) with path going off to the Left. Follow this dirt track (actually a well-paved minor road) watching out for arrows and on a small power pylon ahead there is an arrow pointing to the Right. When this track joins a minor road follow the waymark and turn Right.

You people "are killin me man!"
So many Caminos and only 3 months!
Where to start?
Now THIS one looks like a good place to begin August 18...walk to Santiago... bus to Leon... walk to Santiago... then walk backwards on the VDLP until the time is up.... hmmmmmmmmmmm :?:
This would agree with what I have head, that Irish pilgrims who left by boat from both St. James's Gate in Dublin and other ports like Dingle and Cork also sailed into Coruna and then walked to Santiago. I suppose in those days the pilgrims were not worried about a certificate but just wanted to visit the bones of St. James.Just for the record: Spanish historians say Ferrol was not an original putting-in spot for medieval pilgrims who used the Ingles path to Santiago. They consistently went to Coruna, where the harbor is naturally protected from the heavy sea. Making Ferrol the starting place is an artifice wrought by the cathedral's 30-year-old "100-kilometer rule" that makes the traditional walk from Coruna too short to qualify for the ever-so-important Compostela certificate.
Both start right at the water's edge, and are lovely... although the first day out of Coruna is a LONG trudge on pavement!
My boyfriend wants to walk to Santiago de compostela and he wants to know if he can start in England and it that case where he should start?
