Well, it is ~ 8 days walk, you are around a bunch of airports and tickets back to Ireland aren't usually that expensive in case of some lockdown/crisis. I believe most of Europe will vaccinate the risk groups by then so I would go for it.

Without the benefit of a crystal ball I can't help.

some and then more. see my signature.
- Follow the official rules and laws from your own country and those from Spain. It changes every week.

- Take into consideration that not all risk groups in Europe will be vaccinated by then. And even if that will be the case there is always a risk that you will spread the virus to the more vulnerable.

- And then I refer to my first sentence. What we want to do and what we can do are two very different things. If there is a lesson to learn from this last year than it is just that.

No. You don't know if you are going to be vaccinated. You do not know if every person in every town and village you pass will be vaccinated. Just because someone is not in a risk group and wants to get vaccinated but hasn't been able to it doesn't mean that can't get seriously ill or die because you may have the virus and be asymptomatic or that even though you are vaccinated it doesn't mean you can't spread the virus. This has not been determined yet, Of course we cannot protect everyone. If by summer when there "should" be enough vaccines for everyone and someone has said they refuse to take the vaccine than all bets are off. If they acquire the virus then they have no one to blame but themselves and definitely not you. Please wait.

Even with a vaccination we are still capable of passing on the virus. We have been told that mask wearing and social distancing will still be the protocol for some time to come.
The fact that you can do something doesn't necessarily mean you should. It is a journey still very much in progress. These sort of threads ask the same question...Please wait.

Vacination and mask wearing aside, I have been trying to get home to castaneda for the last 5 months and at my last attempt I was told there is a state of emergency declared in Spain till May with severly restricted travel you may find it difficult to move around, even masked and vacinated.

If anyone knows any different I would love to know, I miss living on the Camino. At the moment it apears that BREXIT has not made things easier. Good luck with your plans Bien Camino.

Can we lock this thread before someone starts to ripping the arguments above into pieces and it will end up like many other threads here before aka pointless arguments about covid and absolute morality. I believe there will be no real contribution to this topic. I am sorry @Larky1888 , but that's how it has been unfortunately ending up here lately :/
