Walking the Camino ( French Route ) in lesser time


I have a book from John Birerley, and he gives
a breakdown of 28 stages( guessing, don't have the book in front of me)
If we want to do it in maybe 24 days, I can
Divide 24 into the total distance and get an average,
Is there access to info on stages for a quicker hike and
Recommendations on daily KM's and were to stop day to day ?

I can guess based on a 28 ! But just wondering if there's info out
there available to look at?
Were planning to do out 1st Camino this May 2013
Vancouver BC


I read the previous post and I'll look at the email link more in detail,
I'm just wondering if any other books or web sites have more info options
on stages with different times available.?
Thx again

The albergues are so frequent on the Camino Frances that you can do it as little time as you wish but why would you want to?

The joys of going on pilgrimage are many and they include letting go of the rush of everyday life. It would be a shame to be in such a hurry that you have to forego a big part of the Camino experience - getting to know other pilgrims. This sometimes means that you walk at a slower pace or stay in a different village because you have formed a little Camino family and want to spend more time with these people who have become very important to you.

There is an end point to the Camino but it starts from wherever you are. Why not start from (say) Pamplona (or, dare I say it, even a little closer to Santiago) so that you can let it unfold in its own time rather than walking to a deadline?
