Getting excited...

Camino(s) past & future
Finished our first Camino Frances in October 2019
Planning Camino Portugues for 2021
We fly out on Monday and start walking on Wednesday...excited and slightly nervous as it is our first time...

Hoping for decent weather but prepared for pretty much anything...

Buen Camino!

I think most people are slightly nervous about the first day - finding the signage, just seeing what the trail is like, and certainly the arrival and first night in an albergue (if you are staying in one).

Buen Camino.

Hi Patrick! All your anxieties should melt away after the first day or two. If you do get some rain along the way, embrace it for the new perspective and variety it brings to your walk. It will likely give you some good memories...in hindsight. 😉
Buen Camino!

Buen camino, Patrick! Not to worry - your nerves will dissolve once you've walked a few steps up that hill!

You should be four days in so an update would be great! Btw, I was exactly the same at the end of May.
