Return Route


New Member
Hello, I walked the Camino Frances in 2007 and, having now had a long rest, would now like to do the return walk this September. I intend to stay, if possible, in the same albergues making use of the credencial I received in 2007. Has anyone encountered any problems doing the same? Thanks, John.

Nunca se camina solo
John - I spoke to a pilgrim yesterday who had done this very thing with no problems - but watch the time of year you are going as albegfues when they are full are likely to give preference to pilgrims walking forward to Santiago.

Last time we were in Melide, we spoke to a pilgrim who was re-tracing his steps back and he told us that it was possible to stay at the albergues.
