I wasn't being rude - it's a genuine concern.
Its a genuine concern for many people but everyone must make their own decisions based on the regulations of the host countries. It could maybe have been put a little better.

I'm wondering if anyone from UK is intending to travel and walk in Spain late September this year?
I should have flown to Spain this week but had to cancel due to UK GOV travel advice ,and the increasing shutdowns in parts of the Camino.I am envious of anyone who can be there now but each must make their own choice.

Starting Camino 02/04/2020
I have a plane ticket (booked in June, absurdly cheap) to southern France on September 26th. Originally I intended to use it to start my camino and cross the Pyrenées a few days later. Now it's more like "I hope to use it".
My original flight was booked for 2nd April. Obviously I couldn't go due to Corona, so rescheduled it for the 26th September, thinking everything would surely be back to normal by late September. Its not though, so that flight will be leaving without me. I just don't think its safe at the moment. I've waited my whole life to do the camino, so I'll just have to be patient and wait a while longer. Current plan is to train over the winter (as my walking schedule went completely out the window during lock down), and keep my fingers crossed that I'll be able to go late March/early April 2021

We had intended to be on the CF late Sept (delayed from March) but we decided not to go for a variety of reasons including UK gov travel advice/insurance concerns, us spreading the virus, concerns about outbreaks on the camino, Ivar's comments, etc. Quite envious of the people from the UK walking but also know it wasn't for us. Wishing you well if you decide to go.

"..... walk in Spain late September this year?"

Was scheduled to start the Frances this Sunday, 6 September.
Cancelled it weeks ago.
Good luck and Buen Camino if you end up going.

Yes! I’m hoping to go on 20 September. Obviously I am watching the stats very carefully and may decide not to, but for now I’m still hoping...

Asking politely, in the light of the FCO advice not to travel to Spain, do you have travel insurance and, if so, will it still be valid?

My daughter said to me last night, why would you want to walk the camino in the current situation, you won't be able to enjoy it the same as previous caminos. She is right, so today I managed to change my flights for the third time since booking last October for an April 2020 camino, free of charge with easyJet. Now hopefully things will be better at the end of March next year🤞

We pilgrims from the UK will not have the benefit of the EHIC after 2020 unless there is a UK/EU agreement to extend. Travel insurance becomes an essential.

I'm flying in mid September to do the Frances. The EHIC card still works for me until January 1. Next year there'll be no EHIC coverage, nor will there be any health insurance because the UK govt will say no non-essential travel so health insurance will not cover you. I'm going while the going is good.

Very wise decision, enjoy your training in the winter.
