It may be that my husband will be unable to come to Spain due to impending back surgery. If that is true, then I will have 40 days to walk the Camino (SJPP to Santiago) before having to jump on a plane to Seville to take my flight home. Orginally I was going to begin Sept 2 in Pamplona and plan to arrive in Santiago on Oct 2 to meet my husband and attend Pilgrim's Mass before going sightseeing in Spain. If I were to do the Camino the leisurely way, would I be bored? I plan to take the side trips and to take short days for Leon and Pamplona to be able to look around. I am also planning now to stop more in smaller towns rather than the major ones. Taking it a little slow and letting the Camino soak in sounds good--especially since I may now have the time to do it that way--but what are the down sides? I suspect I would go through lots of acquaintances since most would be motoring on. I've also debated going a little faster and then continuing on to Finisterre. Input?
