Starting Spuritual Variant on the 24th or 25th from Pontevedra?

Start in Porto with Spiritual Variant
Will anyone be leaving Pontevedra on the 25th and be able to walk the Variant with me. I need someone who wouldn't be impatient with my slow pace due to this illness. I have been bedridden in Rio for many days and I think I am finally on the mend and able to start walking from Pontevedra on the 25th. I could possibly start on the 24th.

I am likely to be there the 28th, also walking with health issues, sorry our timetables don’t coincide.

Hi Julia, there are many people walking the Variante Spiritual at this time of year. If you start walking early in the day, others will catch up with you, and you can chat to them, and maybe someone will stay with you. If they don’t, there will still be others coming up behind you. There is a very long climb after Combarro. If you feel exhausted by the time you get to Combarro, there are places to stay in town, or you can get a bus back to Pontevedra. Good luck! Jill

I am very happy that I feel well enough to walk from Pontevedra to Combarro tomorrow, the 24th. I hope to meet someone who is willing to do the climb with me the next day
