I am a retired teacher and want to do the Camino de Santiago. I am old, but fit. I run and walk a lot. I need to be back in the states for my daughter's wedding at the beginning of April. Do I need to plan for 2 months or can it be less? Will I be all alone on the Camino during February and March?
Thanks.

It can certainly be hit or miss. I had days when there was me and there were other days when there were a full dozen. In general though, expect a more solitary journey. One thing I will mention is that because so few Albergues were open, those of us on the trail generally ended up in the same Albergue at night and if you didn't see everyone that night you'd surely see them the next night! Good luck.

And to address your timeframe, 2 months would be very achievable but most fit people could do it in 33-35 days comfortably but nothing wrong with shorter days and using all 40!

Hi - I am planning to start out in one of the first days of february from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port
. It is my first Camino, and it would be nice to follow with someone the first days to Pamplona.
