From Chartres to Santiago

Hi Everyone,

I'm pretty much set on starting the camino next May. I'm thinking of leaving from Chartres and taking my time getting to Santiago.

I was wondering if there's anyone who's walked it and how long it took. I was also wondering where to get a pilgrim's passport in Chartres.

Last question, somewhat unrelated, I read that some pilgrims bring along a sleeping mat. Any opinions out there about this? Is it worth the weight?

Thanks!
Eric

Chartres is very pilgrim-friendly. The Association des Amis de Saint Jacques d'Eure et Loir has an office not far from the cathedral http://monsite.wanadoo.fr/chartres_stja ... ndex.jhtml and there are various members who will help pilgrims, including someone at one of the bars on the south side of the cathedral, open till midnight. There is also a pilgrim reception at the deanery office. The cathedral has its own hostel/restaurant.

Not sure from your post whether you're deliberately timing your trip to coincide with the Paris-Chartres pilgrimage, but book accommodation well in advance if so. http://www.nd-chretiente.com/accueil.php
