Camino Frances - March 12, 2024
Curious to know/see if anyone is in this route at the moment. I am in Leon currently, but starting my camino in Ponferrada in a few days. I havent seen any peregrinos yet. It scares me to think I will be walking alone when I start.
 
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

I expect that if you go to the Camino entrance to the city, you will see them. It can be harder to recognize pilgrims when they are without their packs in a big city, especially if you are new to the experience and can't recognize the signs! :) I can't imagine that you won't see pilgrims once you get to an albergue in Ponferrada and start walking.

Buen Camino! 🚶‍♀️

You are categorically not alone! In about three weeks we’ll have the first ‘bed race’ post.

You have chosen a good time to start.,

Leon has a population of around 448,000. Even 400 pilgrims are unlikely to stand out. The 40 or so currently searching for a Menu Peregrino are probably invisible
 
Why stress? Why worry? Let this be a little valuable lesson for your camino. You have so much to be thankful for and letting go of control and expectations and fears and thoughts can help set you free. Don't project and let things just unfold with every step you take. Just remember how lucky you will are that you have be given this golden opportunity to be accepted by the Camino..

They’re in the cafe opposite the Cathedral. (Possibly)
 
Fear not, there are always pilgrims! Check in to that albergue in Ponferrada and you will have company immediately. Or just meet them on the Way on your the first morning.
