I've just started a blog for next year's camino. If you take a look, you'll see I'll be doing more than the Levante, but this sub-forum is under-populated so it seemed a good place to put it!


Would someone please be wiling to do me a wee favour and click the link to check it's working. I've got my doubts with the "s" in the address.

I may post another story or two before leaving (April 20), but mostly I've just got it set up so that I can post easily once I arrive. Two of my kids kindly asked if I would blog. Love them (even though I was thinking I might not this time!)

Oh, yes, @Kiwi-family, it is working. As the representative of the low-tech contingent on the forum, i can assure you that if I can see it, the world can see it! Spreadsheet is ready, blog is ready, and now the wait begins!
Thanks a million!

I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!
The link is working. And I hope I did everything successfully to follow it. It's exactly the same route I walked in 2015. I started with my bare feet in the Mediterranean Sea and ended the same way in Atlantic Ocean days later.

Davie don’t get your hopes up! My blogging tends to be very light on useful details and more weighted towards story-telling.
This one might be a wee bit different because I’m planning to record in my journal each day a little map/elevation profile, how many euros I spend, weather details and some very amateur sketching. I guess I could include a photo of each day’s spread,

No problem - every little helps to build a picture.
Moving from the Med to the Atlantic certainly has a buzz about it!

I’ll be walking the Levante starting in April 2020 as well. Maybe we’ll bump into each other...I’ve never met anyone from the forum on the trail before. (I don’t think.🤔 ) Buen Camino

I will definitely be following your blog. It is our dream walk. We're hoping for 2021 even though its a Holy Year, as is also my 65th and our 30th wedding anniversary year. Hope having a bunch of non family followers won't put too much pressure on you. :) Ultreia.

Hello @Kiwi-family. I started the Levante last year and spent 11 days walking to San Clemente. It is a wonderful Camino. I thoughtnthat you might like the chart below, which shows the Levante and how it interacts with the Camino Sureste and other well known Caminos along the way. I will go back to continue as soon as I can. I ws due ti go back this coming Friday.

Hope that you are still planning this Caminolevante-jpg#3.jpg.

@murraydv thanks for reminding me about that map - I was supposed to be walking my first day today and can’t decide whether to read the guide each day (and check out your map) or just to let it go for now! I think I favour the latter option.

I find the map quite inspiring and would like to walk the Levante straight through, instead of skipping all or part of the section from Zamora to Ourense, which I walked on the VdlP (I should like to walk the Sanabres again). It is always a matter of time, with me being a slow walker and the three month time limit. Maybe I shall think about walking this route next spring, instead of my usual fall camino. I must admit, Rachel, that your blog about your family excursion on the VdlP was one of the things that persuaded me to continue walking in the autumn. I found the description of the spring flooding daunting. But after a very wet walk on the Invierno last fall, it seems to me that extremely rainy weather may be found on many camino routes in Spain at any season.

Great diagram. First time I've seen lines on a map connecting Granja-Benavente-Sta. Marta. Interesting.

I'm curious about the dotted line from Granada to Ciudad Real. I remember helping one person who was planning to do that. When we looked into it, I don't think we found much infrastructure - so it was a case of off-piste camino-ing. Do you know if this is a historic or otherwise established route? I don't see anything about a dotted, black, line in the legend of your diagram.

(I should like to walk the Sanabres again).
Yes. Sanabres is very pleasant. But next time I'm in Zamora, I'll try the alternative route that cuts through Portugal to reach Ourense. Gronze calls it the Camino Zamorano Portugués:

I was also due to continue from San Clemente, from tomorrow!

Hi, can you let us know when you plan to do this again please? Hubby and I ordered out english version book last year to hike this as well but now we are in limbo, so would be lovely to watch your hike as it unfolds. Have you been able to find an elevation profile of the hike as well?

Yes - have a look at the website by the Levante Amigos vieiragrino.com

You must be a very fast walker to walk that route (about 1,500 km?) in days. How many days? This is my next planned route.

There's really no limit to what you can achieve in days. As the saying goes "Rome was built in days."
