Hi there!
Finally time to do a new camino! Very happy :) God willing, I will be in Spain in 6 weeks from now, starting the camino del Norte on monday the 30th september.
I had to do the Via de la Plata in three times, because of work and not being able to be free for a longer time then three weeks. So after finishing this route last march I am very happy to start a new one. Is some one starting around that date too?
I read a bit in some treads from people. like the one why you must not walk it but that was his experience, everyone has a different experience but mine is always positive. Sure sometimes thing happens maybe a bit less nice but in general all good.
I wish everyone a beautiful camino!

Buen camino Maurice.
You’ll find the first week a lot more ‘up and down’ than leaving Sevilla on the Vdlp.
Depending how fit you are ? Think about stopping ist day (from Irún) in Pasajes de San Juan , & day 2 enjoying a couple of hours in San Sebastián before continuing on to Orio for night of day 2. (Note: I wasn’t in the right headspace in early sept 2014 to spend a night in busy San Sebastián- But I did get back there for 4 nights r&r (recovery from le Puy 2016) and got the most out of it then.
Are you planning to walk ‘all’ Norte route over time or branch off for the primitivo..
I loved doing the full Norte but came back separately for Salvador/primitivo.
Envy you walking this October on the Norte. Numbers hopefully thinner than reported in this previous two weeks of August with vacationers.

Did the Norte in May/June and loved it !! Started from Irun in the afternoon so Pasages de San Juan was my first stop---worked out well.

Planning for The Primitivo for 2020.

I was the last part of the via de la Plata I walked last march, camino de Sanabria, there where some hills too :) especially walking out of Ourense, that was heavy lol
Thank you Annie for your repley. I will walk the camino del Norte because I always like to do a whole camino, missing a few kilometers makes me nervous lol
About my condition, none. I work every day except in the weekends so in day time I dont have the time to walk. In the weekend I often have to clean my house, do crocerries and that kind of stuff, yes I do walk every weekend but thats between two and four hours, I dont get condition of that.
I know myself, it's always hard the first week, and then slowly I start to get some condition, after 10-12 days walking I am always fine, don't want to stop then even iff I walked 30-35km :)
Yes, I hope it will be not too busy, that was very great on the via de la Plata, very very quiet, maybe 5-6 perregrinos a day. Take care Annie!!!
