Hi guy's I posted here over a year ago and due to circumstances I never got to the Camino last year. I was planning on going again in March this year but broke my toes. So here I am and ticket booked. I will arrive in Santiago on the 6th of July until the 20th July. I have been reading through different forums and I still don't know what direction to go in from Santiago. I did consider the english was last year but now I am open to suggestions. I am reasonable fit and don't like crowds lol... Also friends have suggested to me to bring a sleeping bag but I am travelling light so do you think a sleeping bag liner will do the trick. I am looking forward to this adventure and hidden gems/walk that you might know. Thanks guys :)

Hi Abigail, third time lucky!

There will probably be lots of suggestions for you, but with 13 days for walking here is what I would do : Hop a bus or train down to Porto, and walk the Portuguese camino, you will have enough time to make it all the way to Santiago.

There are blankets in the alberges, but the sleeping liner will probably be all you need in July.
Buen Camino!

Nearly every year since 2006, often walking more than one route. 2018 will be Camino #14.

Wow! Glad you're finally making it.

In July, I'd just take a liner.
From Santiago, you could do the trek to Finisterre, or you could nab a bus or taxi to Sarria and get your Compostela.
Ahhh, but you don't like crowds so that's probably out.

How many days do you have?

Hi Abigail,
If you'd like to have a couple days of margin on either end, you could walk from Ferrol to Santiago in 5 - 7 days. Spend a day or two in Santiago getting your bearings and last-minute stuff, then go up to Ferrol and spend the night. Start walking the following day. Then you'll still have a couple days to take a couple days in Finisterre or spend more time in Santiago.

La Coruña is beautiful as well - you could spend a day or two there then take the bus to Ferrol.

I'm doing the Camino Ingles myself in July from Ferrol - if you choose to do it maybe I'll see you on the trail!

Abigail,
We finished our Camino last year and then took the bus to Muxia for two days. It was a lovely way to finish. You might consider the Ingles and then have a few days left over to see some other things. We didn't find Muxia crowded in July. We stayed at Bella Muxia which is a lovely restful place.

Hi, I have been tossing about walking from Santiago to Finisterre and Muxia and or the Ingles (English way) I must check out Bella Muxia sounds like a great place to stay ....thank you...

We rented the Apartment on the top floor which had a marvelous view of the harbor. Also had a small kitchen. They also have bunk rooms and private rooms, a large common kitchen, and cultural exhibits in nice lounge area. There was a local street market on one of the days we were there and we enjoyed walking through the quiet little town. The waves coming in at the Virgen de la Barca are also beautiful and mesmerizing.

Spent two nights here in June . Excellent place with excellent management at Bella Muxia. They even made free soup for pilgrims. Very modern Albergue with great staff.
