Walking from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela

Sarria to Santiago

The question was:

Me and my mother are going to walk Sarria -Santiago, we have 10 days and three are travelingdays.

I saw that the best option probably is to take the bus from Santiago to Sarria and walk the way back. But we feel that it would be like opening the biggest christmas present before christmas :roll:

Got a tips from the pilgrimage office in norway that we can take buss number 200 from the airport and will get to Avenue de America, where do we fint the bus to Sarria? Do we need to book a room? We are gonna walk from 10-20 April!

To finish in Santiago de Compostela, or not?

Santiago de Compostela

The question was:

I will be heading out on my first Camino in May and need some advice with my plan. I only have three weeks and can’t walk the whole way so… should I plan my route to end in Santiago or start in St. Jean get as far as I can and return at a later date to finish it off. I would like to know I walked the whole way but will not have that time available for years to come do do it in one shot.

What is your favorite private accommodation between Sarria and Santiago?

Camino de Santiago

The question was:

Since I got such good information from my request for information about places to stay in Melide, I thought I’d post a more general question.

If you have stayed in private accommodations between Sarria and Santiago and have some special favorites, post them here. I am helping a friend set up her Camino, but since I don’t usually stay in private places, I’m not able to give her good advice. There are some older threads on this topic, but given the rate of change and construction, I thought I’d ask for more recent experiences and recommendations.
