Camino de Santiago – Summary

For the last week I’ve been in Spain walking the last 120 kilometres of the Camino de Santiago. We opted to complete the most popular of the routes, the Camino Francés, which as its name suggests actually starts back in France. We started from Sarria and took five days to reach the end, staying in some comfort and avoiding the more traditional option of staying in hostels.

There were eight of us from Hike Norfolk who took part, and as everyone who reads this can imagine, I was the bravest. We were joined on part of the route by Susanna and Jim, who seemed to spend most of their journey on the train, but I didn’t say anything so as to not cause offence.

Anyway, this is the summary page that I’ll leave here to link in all the separate blog posts. I’ve posted elsewhere about my final thoughts on this trip.
