...just in case you're interested. The English version of my video is on Youtube now. Feel free to make fun of my German accent
Do you know what stages you plan to walk yet Stephen? Certainly couldn't do the long stages as shown in the video although great to see.What a wonderful video! I am planning on walking the Primitivo next May  but will certainly not walk the long stages completed by Dirk!
A lovely intrroduction to the camino - I felt I was with you out there in the sunshine!
Buen camino, amigo!
Hi Heather!Do you know what stages you plan to walk yet Stephen? Certainly couldn't do the long stages as shown in the video although great to see. Heather
Heather, if it helps, these were my stages:Do you know what stages you plan to walk yet Stephen? Certainly couldn't do the long stages as shown in the video although great to see.
Not yet worked out the stages - need to get Christmas out of the way, first. So many jobs to do, and church services to prepare ...
However - I can tell you that my maximum day's walk is around 24 kms. That's MAXIMUM ! I often only walk 10 to 12 kms. After 24 kms I sometimes take a day off to recover. You can see all the stages I walked on the previous 5 caminos on my web site.
Anyway ..... I'll start planning in earnest in a fortnight.
Keep in touch, Heather - meanwhile, a very happy Christmas to you and all you love....
Heather, if it helps, these were my stages:
Esclapero - 10
San Juan de Villapanada - 18
Grandas de Salime-13 (hotel)
Also had this as a plan:
Grandas 15 (village)
O Cavado 25
San Roman 20
As Seixa 17
Santa Irene 19
I'm sure the numbers may be a bit off here and there, also depending on the guide ypu use but it will give you idea of what may work for you.
So happy you found this helpful. Just make sure to not only look at distances but climb and terrain. Everyone talks of Hospitales, but the walk to O Cavado has a terrible uphill at the end of the day. I would have loved to stay in Bodeyana, but of staying in San Juan it's either a long day, or a very short one the day after making you arrive in Bodeyanaaround 10 am...Thanks Anemone this looks more like it. I probably could manage around 20-25kms a day but as the years pass it gets harder
I wonder if you could share the stages you are thinking about -- hoping they don't have any 50 km days! Thanks and buen camino.
Visit www.forwalk.org, ot gives you alternative etapas depending on the number of days you wantto take to walk the Primitivo. Cicerone has a guide of the northern routes, in English, which includes the Primitivo.Hi Peregrina. I was going to follow the stages you have on the pinned posts to this forum. There does not seem to be a john brierley book on this camino.
Looking at this as a possibility. Want to walk in 10 or 11 days.
Thats brilliant, Lots of info on that site. Very detailed. Thanks
And if you haven't seen it, the Resources section has a document put together by a forum member for her walk last summer. It has been highly rated by other happy users, https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/resources/categories/camino-primitivo.83/
Forwalk.com is a great site, thank you for sharing. Now is in my favourites.
Good video, I was planning to walk in 10 days. You seem to have walked 100km the last 2 days?
Thank you for sharing. What kind of camera did you use??
