Walking from Sarria to Santiago


New Member
Hello ^^
Nice to meet you all, friends.

I am Korean and I start my journey in 5 days from Sarria in Spain.

Most of you know, it is crazy to walk in stormy weather, but I would like to do this.

Please, if you know the answers of few questions, let me know...

Firstly, I will arrive at Madrid and take a coarch to Ponferrada.
after that, I will stay over the night and take a bus to go
Sarria, but I don't know where I am able to take the bus.
I will appreciate if you give information.

Also, if you know any danger or risk during this journey in the weather, please, let me know ^^

Thank you.

When in Ponferrada, go to the municipal albergue (I believe they are open): I am sure they can provide you with everything you need.
