I always follow my heart but on this occasion, as you have already walked that section, I would say follow your head. Either way have a great Camino.
Buen Camino.

Hi Jim. I am thinking of walking from Málaga next camino - well, from my front door actually as I live about 60 km east of Málaga. I would love to know any insights you care to share about the route. What are the accommodation possibilities, etc.

I would tend to agree with your family and with wayfarer. As you plan to walk at the same time of year, you will be seeing the same scenery, perhaps I would feel differently if it were another season. Let us know what you decide, and if you are writing a blog, please let me know the address.
Buen camino, Maggie

wanted to April start but now late Aug-Sept 2013 start
I think you should not re-walk the section ... ultimately, you want to reach Santiago DC right? get there ... go back someday for the other section.
Just think of the devastation if you encountered foot problems again from the extra walking.

I will throw out the contrarian opinion -- follow your heart. I once walked the Vdlp from Sevilla to Merida, where tendonitis/heel pain/generally bad feet made me stop (funny, I was just writing about this experience in another thread). When I came back the next year, there was no way I was going to start in Merida, so back to Sevilla I went. If your heart is telling you to start in Malaga, unless there is something in the Malaga to Cordoba section that caused your injuries, or unless time/money is an issue, then I would understand completely why you would want to start again in Malaga.

And like magwood, I am hoping to walk this route one day and would love to get feedback as you walk or afterwards. Buen camino, whatever choice you make, Laurie

Hi Jim,
Malaga to SdC sounds great to me, could be a possible for my next camino, this years camino from Alicante to SdC has given me a taste for routes less travelled,
Is there any published info on the route?
Regards
George

In reply to my own post.
A rough plan could be:-
Camino Mozarabe 20 days Malaga to Merida
Via de la Plata 14 days Merida to Granja de Moreruela
Camino Sanabres 13 days Granja de Moreruela to SdC
Camino Finisterre 3 days SdC to Finisterre

looks like it could be fun!!
regards
George
