- Camino(s) past & future
- Francis (2011), Norte (2012), VdlP (Apr 2016). Sureste/Invierno (Apr/May 2017).
I think this will be my next camino with either the Invierno at the end to SdC or maybe the Frances - depends how I feel when I get to Ponferrada. My intention this year is to start around 12 Sept (I’m currently banned from another spring time walk as everything in the garden grows too fast!). Have gathered info from the various posts in the forum and the only bit I am struggling with is the first couple of days where accommodation choices seem limited. Seems the only choice is walk 25 or 35kms first day to Guenes/Balmaseda and then on to Espinosa de los Monteros which is 43kms from Balmaseda. I don’t particularly mind those distances but would prefer slightly shorter days at the start. Also I don’t want to detour off to Villasana de Mena. Anyone got other options? I see there is a Casa Rural at San Pelayo about 30kms from Balmesada which may be an option although a little pricey!
