I'm planning to walk the Le Puy route solo in Sept/Oct 2020. I've walked the Camino Frances (2015) from SJPDP. I've walked others since then, as well as the Wainwright Coast to Coast Walk, but I'm not getting any younger. I'll be 78 next fall, and I want to take the walk slowly, averaging 10 miles a day, but hopefully starting even more slowly. I'm wondering if staying at St-Christophe-sur-Dolaison the first night might be comparable to stopping at Orisson on the CF. Those first 7.5 km to Orisson took me 4 hours! My ability to walk longer days grew, of course, but I took 45 days with one rest day to walk to Santiago. Has anyone else here walked the Via Podiensis using shorter stages than the traditional ones? I would love to see some itineraries with shorter stages. Many thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.
