OK veterans I'm looking for something specific here. Describe the Camino Routes with respect to the Frances in just a word or two....
Please only comment if you've actually walked that route. Example:

The CP is LONELIER than the CF.
The CdlP has more/less HISTORY than the CF
The CdN is more CONSISTANT when compared to the CF

Past: (2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018)-Frances, Baztan, San Salvador, Primitivo, Fisterra,VdlP, Madrid
The Portuguese is more residential/built up than the CF
The Salvador is more rugged
The Primitivo is more stunning
The Baztan is short!
La Voie de la Nive was completely deserted (when we went)
Walking back to Santiago from Fisterra was anti-climactic (for us) - and also slow because people coming the other way had heard about us and wanted to stop and chat!

What's the Camino Frances Bug?
It's invisible to the eye and burrows deep into your heart where it lies dormant until you get home and then slowly emerges from its cocoon. The only cure is to walk the camino again.
