Hello fellow Pilgrims, due to the COVID-19 situation I and my partner Pippa had to cancel our Camino Primitivo pilgrimage we planned for the this April, we also had to cancel our June trip to Mexico... Moreover, we had to spend the last 12 weeks apart, as our university shut down and I moved back to the Czech Republic and Pippa stayed in the UK.

When Spain opened we decided we are gonna walk the Camino no matter what as it has a special meaning for us, we met for the first time on the Camino Frances two years ago.

I would like to map the journey to provide information for pilgrims that are still considering walking this summer.

Our plan is to meet up in Santander on the 16th of July (we fly from different countries and it was the best option), we will spend two days there and meet with one of our friends. On the 19th of July, we will start walking the Camino Norte. The first interesting crossroad happens in Oviedo, where we could continue on the Primitivo, continue via Norte or reach Leon via San Salvador. We have quite a free timeframe so this will be decided based on our experience/people we meet/recommendations we get.

So far, we have had no troubles finding flights and as we had some Ryan Air coupons we used those. We got some minimalistic equipment and an ultralight tent (1.4kg) for two people just in case we will have troubles finding accommodation, the rules will be too strict or we would have the chance to camp in an Albergue itself. Airbnb prices skyrocketed in Santander as the UK is about to introduce the air bridges so we got the first two nights in an apartment via Booking which was confirmed with no troubles.

I will be updating this thread daily on the Camino. I might also post something during the upcoming days if we face some major issue that might affect our journey and might be useful for the pilgrims

I'm following your posts! I plan on doing Salvador and then the Primitivo starting Oct 8. I would like to see if Albergue's are open along the Salvador. I may take a tent also, but October could get very cold.

Buen Camino
