We will remember the comaradery on the trail, the different accommodation every night.
When the priest in Leon cathedral blessed us before we started walking, he was very personal to us all.
We did not have a group leader it was self guided. The notes were not always adequate.
If you can have local maps.
Follow the Camino signs if in doubt.aa
The service provided by Exodus was excellent. I would book with the company again. Luggage was efficiently moved each day and transfers were timed quite well. My only critique would be that daily instructions might be too detailed. In some cases it would be good to just say follow the Camino markers until.........
Accommodation was fantastic at almost each location.
It was amazing to meet so many people on the walk - from all over the world and of all ages. That alone is very inspirational.
If you have a long walk planned in a day - do as much as you can before noon so you can travel more easily in the afternoon. It takes a couple of days to find your dad wn walking rhythm and then it becomes easier. If it is warm , make sure to drink lots of water.
Thanks for the excellent organization.
This was a great trip! We wanted to spend some time walking in Spain and this seemed like a good way to do it. Starting in Leon and visiting the city was a good start, taking in some bars and restaurants in the sunshine. We had a great tour of the town with Blanca, our guide, who showed us round the cathedral and other places of interest. Having our own guide really helped to find out more about this city.
We opted for the short walk on the first day, which was a good decision as it was so hot that day. From Day 2 onwards, we enjoyed beautiful walking through the Galician countryside - hills and valleys to begin with, then more rolling countryside for the next few days, with lots of woodland paths and good shade. The weather was very kind to us - warm with nice breezes - ideal walking conditions.
We stayed in a variety of places - all lovely rooms, and good service overall. There some beautiful historic buildings with thick granite walls, reminding us of the history of this walk and the millions of pilgrims who have travelled this route for a thousand years!
The trip notes were very good, though it is easy to find your way with so many sign posts and yellow arrows to follow. We could always find somewhere to eat or drink when we needed to, and found some delightful quirky hostelries along the way.
I think the route is ideal - taking in Leon to start the trip and using taxis to miss out the mundane parts of walking out of Leon made sense for us - also, having a slightly shorter day's walking in the middle of the trip helped us to catch up physically.
I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like to walk part of the Camino - I feel like I have been on an interesting journey as well as completing a physical challenge which I thought I might not manage!
We had a great time!
Sunset at O Cebreiro
Local food - cheese, ham, bread, wine etc.
Visiting the cathedral at Santiago
Sense of achievement of completing such a long journey!
I loved our room at Pazo Santa Maria! O Muino Mill and Casa de la Somoza were also nice. Food at Rectoral de Goian was excellent.
Make sure you break in your boots!
Take a wide brimmed hat.
Remember to stamp your pilgrim's passport!
