I originally posted this in the miscellaneous string, but thought the peregrino route pages would be a better spot... any thoughts on my question below? Thanks.

walk from Amsterdam to Santiago?

I'm still reveling in my recent camino from SJPP to Santiago (and on to Fisterra). I'd like to return as soon as I have the money and would like to start in Amsterdam--I met so many wonderful pilgrims / hospitaleros from the Netherlands and some of whom had even walked from their doorsteps (as I cannot, as an american) an erasmus of rotterdam fan, starting in the low country has that added midieval bonus. Any advice or experience from those who may have walked from amsterdam? arbitrary starting point or not, i'd sure love to hear from anyone with any knowledge.

In the miscellaneous string Geert Bakker of the Pilgrimsplaza answered already and tells you about the two topo-guides for the two sections in Holland. First section is 199 km from Amsterdam to the city of 's Hertogenbosch in the province Brabant. The second section is from 's Hertogenbosch to Visé in Belgium, 266 km.
These topo-guides are only in the Dutch language.
The whole route is signed like the GRs in France with red/white posts.
It is a beautiful walk if you like the flat Dutch landscape :roll:
