Route – 2016

Francine and I are planning our second Camino – our first full Camino together. We have six weeks this time, so we plan to take it a little slower than last time. There will be rest days.

We are flying out of Seattle on Easter Sunday and in to Madrid. From there, we’ll catch a train to Pamplona. We’ve booked a spot at Pensión Corazón Puro, and they’ll pick us up at the Pamplona train station. We’ll spend the night there, and they will get us to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port the next morning.

We’ll spend a day and a night in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, supping and sleeping at Beilari, which used to be L’Esprit du Chemin.

And then, the walk begins. We will walk the Camino Francés, the same route I walked in 2013.

Our plan is to take rest days in (at least) Pamplona and Burgos. Possibly Astorga. We’ll play it by ear.

Then, depending on what day we arrive in Santiago, we will have some options: stay in Santiago a couple of extra days, or take a quick jaunt to Finisterre, or hang out in Madrid.
