Hello all,

I've just found this forum while browsing the net for Camino info. This looks like a nice place to ask some questions :)


I've already done part of the Camino Francais (from Pied de Port to Burgos), but that was 10 years ago and with 3 good friends...and we were 16 at the time. It was a brilliant holiday, but I wouldn't call it a proper pilgrimage.

Now I want to do it alone and since I heard the VDLP is VERY quiet I choose this route. I'm quite fit and will be walking the route in 28-30 days, with a 2 day stop in Salamanca (i love that town).


I have ordered the quide from Ben Cole. Is this book enough of a reference while walking or should I look around for more books/maps?

Also I'm thinking about travelling with a tent. It would give me a lot more freedom, but on the other hand the extra weight is something to consider. Has anyone here done this?

any advice would be more than welcome.

Regards,
Wannes
