Does anyone have experience with waiting to book your outward journey from Santiago until you’ve arrived (or perhaps when you’re close enough to the end that you can tell when you’ll be getting there)? I’m keen to have a general plan, but would harbour hopes of walking a bit quicker….if we arrived in Santiago with four or five days to spare I’d love to zip back to Paris and spend the time there before returning home. If we had pre-booked tickets it would cost to change them. But will it cost more to be buying at the last minute? And if so, how much more? And what would the chances of getting three seats on the same flight be?
It wasn’t really a panic attack, but today I am 13 days away from getting on a plane and touching down in Paris to begin the biggest adventure of my life.
I’m a worrier by nature, but every couple of years I say “Screw it. Life is too short,” and I do something that scares me.
Trips I take don’t usually sink in until a week or a few days before I leave. When I first decided to walk the Camino my mind kept me awake at night going through all the things that could possibly go wrong between Paris and Madrid(where I’ll be flying home from). Now, I am oscillating between excitement and asking myself “What the h-ll are you doing?”
Anyone else have the same feelings before your Caminos?
As part of your Camino de Santiago planning I am sure you have been looking into how to get here or return home from Santiago de Compostela. The blog Aeronoticiario Santiago has compiled this map, showing the destinations with a direct flight to the Santiago de Compostela airport.
