That reminds me of the scene in the movie "The Way," when Martin Sheen stepped out the door of his hotel on the first morning and turned left...a few seconds later he came back by in the other direction, following a crowd of people wearing backpacks.Wake up in the morning, stand in the street and watch 200 people walk by with backpacks headed west. Follow them.
Hello everyone ........ I also am only able to do Sarria - Santiago this year. My daughter and I will be arriving late into Santiago from Canada. We have decided to stay there the night and recover from jet lag, etc. We plan to take bus(es) to Sarria as early as possible the next morning and start our walk noonish. I have read on other threads that one must have a stamp in their credential from the albergue/refugio /hostel in which one stayed. The second stamp can be from church/restaurant/etc. Will the Monastery de Magdalena or other hostel provide us with the necessary stamp (even though we will not have stayed there the night?). It is important to me to receive the Compostella, and this may be my last opportunity to do so. I do not want to inadvertently NOT comply with the requirements. Any definitive knowledge on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
It is a requirement in the last 100km (200km on bicycle).Regarding the two stamp per day rule, I don't know if this is Camino legend or not.
