I hope to start the Primitivo from Oviedo on Sept 15th flying Dublin to Madrid on 14th. I have done the full Camino Frances and Portuguese. Are there likely to be many on the Primitivo at that time?. I am happy to walk alone but given the nature of the terrain and to avoid getting lost, I would like to have fellow pilgrims within sight. On the Portuguese last Oct there were very few between Lisbon and Porto, but still always someone.Very interesting ... I am really curious how August will develop and how it will be the second half of September, when I am on the road.
Also given the heights involved I presume it will be quite cold at the higher levels. I will book hotels/pensions for first week or so. Any helpful comments would be appreciated.
