Hello! My husband and I will start from SJPDP the last week of June, is anyone else planning on that time frame? Any tips or advice for walking in July?

Many will walk (Judy, John, Martha, James, Steven, Ann,...) to answer the question in the title of your post. My wild gues is about 50.000 at least will claim Compostela in July.

Buen Camino!
 

Camino Chrissy

Take one step forward...then keep on walking.

Kinky, that would be 50,000 walkers minus one = 49,999! The "one" would be me! I totally dislike...no absolutely hate, walking in the heat! 😛

My sister and I will be arriving on the 28th June at SJPP, hopefully our paths will cross.

I’m partial to early starts... but I also don’t mind the heat.

We're arriving in SJPDP on the 23rd and starting on the 24th. I desperately tried to avoid starting on a Monday...darnit. Alas.

Be happy! That puts you behind the wave that travelled on Saturday; started on Sunday. You'll catch up with some as the miles unfold, especially the ones that start too fast (easily recognized 'cos they're the ones sitting out an injury 5 days down the trail) but you have a chance of walking all the way down the Way meeting Hospi's and Hoteliers who'll tell you "It's quiet tonight". ;)

Exactly as the @Tincatinker posted. Spanish start on Fridays, Europeans on Saturdays and most of the overseas pilgrims on Sundays. Result of starting on Monday will most likely be that you won't end in a (weekend) bubble of pilgrims and therefore much less need for booking accommodation in advance.
Also until you'll get through the week to Sunday when a lot of business (shops) are closed you'll already get the feel how things are working out on Camino. It'll be easier for you!

Buen Camino!

My advice is simple. If you are using the John Brierley book try to stay away from the towns on the top and bottom of each page. They tend to be very busy. Aim for the middle of each page. Less facilities but often more 'Camino'. It might be a bit late now but, try booking Orrision for your first night. Otherwise it is a long and very difficult day going from St Jean PdP to Roncesvalles. Do not have a shower in the mornings as this will soften the skin on your feet and cause blisters. When you stop for coffee always take off your boots and socks to let your feet cool down. Don't ware headphones -- listen to the silence and the sound of your feet. Remember there are no answers on the Camino only questions. Buen Camino

Maybe we will meet, b/c I will walk straight on to Roncesvalles on my first day.

Buen camino! I walked end of June through July in 2017 from SJPdP. You will have a chance to get used to the heat as you start off in cooler climes and then it gets hotter as you go further into Spain. When it starts getting really hot, start earlier - we even set off in the dark a couple of times when we wanted to walk longer distances. Use the afternoons and evenings to rest. I am a pilly-wally Brit and I hate heat but I managed it and even loved it. Enjoy!

We are slow walkers so say hi as you pass us by. We couldn't get a room at the Albergue in Roncesvalles so will be staying Burguete on July 1st.

We’re on the train to SJPDP now. Start the Camino tomorrow- hoping to hear back from Orisson that we have beds, but not holding out much hope of that. It is what it is. No reservations at SJPDP either, we’ll see how much that bites us in the arse LOL.

You’ll know it’s us on the path by our Dead & Company water bottles - and my husband will always be asking about vegan friendly options for food. If I can find an Albuquerque that will let me use their oven, I’ll be the one baking bread.

Hi. I am starting from Pamplona on the 3rd July. I’m skipping the Pyrenees as have a leg injury. I am only going to be walking around 7-10 miles a day till I get acclimated to the walking. So you may very well catch me up 😊

This week has been and will continue to be HOT! It’s in the neighborhood of 30 Celsius. We’re delaying a little bit this morning to mail some of our heavier clothing back home.

So far, really grateful we brought silk bag liners and small camp blankets. Wish I had a pillowcase though.

Glad we’re only walking to Orisson today. Four hours and straight up!

Thanks for the update, have a Buen Camino and try and stay at Albergue Verde in hospital orbigo, imo the best vegetarian albergue on trail and one of the most impressionable experiences I had last year.

I’ll keep an eye out for your water bottles, and a nose up for your bread

So far (Orisson), no crowds. Really happy we decided to split the first stage into two days. The refuge here is nice.
