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.
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!Many will walk (Judy, John, Martha, James, Steven, Ann,...) to answer the question in the title of your post.

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

Me. Planning to start in a day or two or three when this rain ends. When will you begin your journey? Buen Camino.
Maybe we will meet, b/c I will walk straight on to Roncesvalles on my first day.
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.Maybe we will meet, b/c I will walk straight on to Roncesvalles on my first day.
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
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.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!
