Hi Everyone,
I'm starting my first Camino Frances on 4th September, I only have 15 days so hopefully will be back to complete from wherever I end up this time!!
Looking forward to meeting new people and enjoying the space and time.
Burn Camino everyone.

Buen Camino! Enjoy every minute of it and do come back to finish it off. Only two weeks? How sad. I would walk it very slowly, pop into every church, sniff around every village and town for architecture and art, museums, stop to drink a lot of coffee in the mornings, stop to drink a lot of beer in the afternoons (wouldn't wand to dehydrate now would you), enjoy the food, seek out the camaraderie of other pilgrims, take hundreds of photographs and enjoy everything the Camino has to offer.. The Camino has been here for a 1000 years it will still be here waiting for you next year, next decade, next reincarnation!

Ok, so I'm now in Pamplona. Made a big mistake not booking rooms along the way very difficult finding beds available at the moment.
I didn't realise how many people would be walking, everyone was saying September would be quieter!!! How wrong were they!
Hey hi, let's see how we go.

Who would say that? No one on this forum! August is the busiest month from Sarria, but September and May are the busiest from SJPP. In any case, I'm sure you will have the time of your life. Buen camino, and please let us know how it goes.
