Having done the Frances and the Portugues (and having started the Plata as a long term project), I am now thinking about doing the Ingles in 2010. When would be a good time of year to do this? My birthday is July 25, so my boyfriend suggested trying to arrive in Santiago on the same day as saint's feast day, but I imagine that Santiago would be even more of a zoo than it normally is in the summer (still, it would be a neat thing to do on my birthday). I know that I can download an updated guide before take off and that I can also download some topos from mundicamino, however, has anyone yet published a nice guidebook with all of this info in one place? I used the Brierley guide for the Camino Portuguese and found it very helpful.
