Where should i start and where to get the passport?

Hello…

I’m from Israel, my girlfriend is from England. At the moment I’m traveling in India. I want to start the way of Santiago from France – although I’m still not sure which path we’re going to take. We want to start in about a month or two.
Here are my questions:
1) Where exactly do I get the pilgrimage passport? Please, don’t just give me links to other “answers” in this forum because I’ve already read it quiet thoroughly (and for many hours) and found no answers – not to mention that some of the links are broken. I found ways to get it if you belong to a certain organization or a group. Or if you come from this country or another but could not find anything for myself. So, since I’m not in Europe at the moment my girlfriend (who is from England) will have to buy them for both of us. Where and how exactly can we obtain them? Can we do it by email? Letter? How do I pay for them?
2) Any suggestions regarding where to start from France? Since we also plan to take a tent we prefer to take routes that are less traveled.
Anyway, we would appreciate any assistance
thanks

If you want to travel on the less crowded paths in France, try starting in Vezelay or Le Puy.

Credentials are available along the Camino - hard to list every place! I got mine in SJPP on my first day of the Camino. There are also several organizations from which you can obtain a credential my mail prior to your journey. I've listed several such organizations on my website - http://www.30daystosantiago.com. Perhaps the best known is the Confraternity of St. James.

Buen Camino!
