Me too.
Since Lockdown I hiked over 120km near my hometown / hometown of the parents-in-law (Thuringia, that is).

How concerned I look, I didn't know what to expect.
In Roncesvalles I did not know, that this path leading me to SdC, will bring joy, laughter and fellow pilgrims to talk and walk to me.

@Caligal Where do you plan to start in 2022? Just a little further East and you’ll see “the sign”!🚶🏻‍♀️

@Juspassinthrough You look so content, like you have already walked that distance, ta da! 🎉

@Roland49 Are you walking one of the trails on the walking4fun.com site? If you were logging your steps on the CF you‘d be nearing Logroña. Check it out, it’s fun. 😁

Hi @Saint Mike II, for some reason I can’t see your entire foto when I tap on the thumbnail. I just see the top third. 🤨
Any thoughts on how you were feeling that day?

Hola - what you see is all there is. If I recall correctly it was starting to rain and I took this snap and then hurried back inside to wait for the taxi to take me to Haizea Albergue at Espinal. Roncesvalles was either full or there was a 90 min wait to get a bed. I was not prepared to wait.

Hola all, regarding the "snail" on the Santiago sign. I have gone back to my May 2017 photo and whilst there is something in the bottom right hand corner I cannot enlarge is further to confirm or otherwise identify our little friend. Thanks for pointing it out,. Cheers

I think that many people don't realise that that is a traffic sign, i.e. it tells motorists how many kilometres it is to Santiago de Compostela by car. It is not the same as the distance you will walk on the Camino Francés. There is not a lot of difference, but it's not the same. It is impossible to say how far it is by the Camino to Santiago from Roncesvalles because there are so many alternativos or complementarios on the way. I suppose you could say the same for the journey by road, but presumably 790 km is by the shortest route.
