Many, various, and continuing.
It´s going to be really, really tough sometimes. You´re going to be dis-illusioned. But adventures are like that. You´re starting on what may be the adventure of a lifetime!

Go at your own pace. Dont be tempted to go faster than you are comfortable with for fear of losing the friends you have made. The people who are a day behind you are most likely just as friendly and companionable and you will be glad to have to have met them too. More than likely you will see the people who went ahead of you time and time again over the coming weeks.
Its YOUR camino so do your own thing!

Have a wonderful camino,


PS I second the clean socks thought too!
