Walking in feb/march.


Camino(s) past & future
Camino Frances: SJPdP -> Fisterra, (sep 26- oct 18, 2017)
I have time to walk and was thinking about doing the camino from Porto to Santiago starting soon. I have walked the CF, enjoyed it but also found it very pilgrim-touristy, with not that much else to offer in terms of local atmosphere. I’ve read that CP is more an local experience.

For the season, is this an enjoyable walk or is there another you would suggest (I dont mind not getting all the way to Santiago). I would love mountains, but there are probably better season for this. But walking by the sea is also always an awesome experience.

Will I meet other pilgrims or will i walk alone. Which routes does other pilgrims do this time of the year.

I have heard alot about the roads/cobblestone, would I be better suited walking in runningsneakers than trailshoes. Should I ever walk the CF again I would probably do it in runningshoes, as I did find most of the camino runs on nice and easy roads.
