Two weeks


Camino(s) past & future
Camino Francés 2020
My brother is able to join me in September/October next year for a period of two weeks while I attempt to walk the Camino Frances.

Would be interested to hear any suggestions for possible locations along the route that might be suitable for him to meet up /depart as he will be travelling to and from the UK.

Thank you in anticipation

Holy Year from Pamplona 2010, SJPP 2011, Lisbon 2012, Le Puy 2013, Vezelay (partial watch this space!) 2014; 2015 Toulouse-Puenta la Reina (Arles)
Buen Camino and Greetings from Jerusalem!
Two weeks? You will be needing an arrival that is easily accessible by public transportation and another for departure. 14 days from SJPP a place not easy to arrive will put you into say Castrojerez just as difficult to leave. Pamplona to Carrión de los Condes is a much better option. Burgo to O'Cebreio is two weeks but no transportation out of O'Cebreio. Leon to SdC is also around two weeks but in my opinion, a spoiler since it is far too easy to fall into "been there done that" and not come back. For a first taste, beautiful scenery, wonderful art and architecture Pamplona to Carrión de los Condes would be my choice.

A friend met me in Fromista once - there are train and bus options to get there. But Leon would be far easier, and then your friend gets to walk into Santiago - it's two weeks away. I respectfully disagree with @scruffy1 . It was my first camino, and 'been there done that' certainly does not apply - and I know I'm not the only one.

Leon was my first thought. Or, if you are going to be walking on to Finisterre/Muxia, perhaps Astorga.
