Hi, a question for those who are walking now. Do you notice the sun rising behind you in the morning?

I am thinking of walking “backwards”, from Santiago, starting early February next year, and it suddenly dawned :cool::cool: on me, if I am tossed out of the albergues between 8am and 9am, I will be walking into the sunrise.

Wow, that’s an exciting thought, as sometimes they can be quite spectacular.


Oh... That's what the shell is for...

Hi Jill - yes, you will be looking right into from around 7:45am - 11:00am as the midday sun is very low in the sky. Incidentally, I met an Italian in day 2 this year who was just completing a reverse Camino!
