Stages of the Camino Frances

I listed the stages (Day Walks) I’ll be walking on my Camino and printed them off for my wife and family, so they can mark my progress on the map and see where I am on a daily basis. Since doing so, I thought I’d list them here also. The stages provide a rough guide to the Camino Frances, but of course don’t have to be followed exactly.

Two weeks to go!

With only two weeks to go, the family have been spending the Easter holidays at our caravan in Barmouth, with a mid holiday dash back home for a day to celebrate my Aunt’s 80th birthday and a visit from my Dad and Berendina in our second week.

The weather here has been mixed, but nowhere near as bad as I have been hearing it has been in northern Spain. Reports from pilgrims on the Camino Frances this past two weeks have tales of 2 to 3 foot of snow from St Jean all the way to beyond Sarria. In the last few days these reports have turned to muddy paths and pathways turning into rivers in parts.

You could say I’ve been a little bit worried, but still have two weeks to go before I start from St Jean Pied de Port and the weather looks like it is going to pick up. Forecasts for next week is sunny with temperatures rising to 20 degrees C. The latest report from a pilgrim who arrived in St Jean today (thanks to a Facebook Camino group) says the route Napoleon is open, with light snow but nothing beyond Orisson.

In a show of support, the weather here in Barmouth has been sunny all day today.

Getting my backpack ready

I’ve started to weigh out the items for my Camino. So far the total is 9.5kg, so I’m going to have to trim back some of the items I’ll be taking, or find lightweight alternatives.

I’m going out on my first dress rehearsal today with just 7kg in the backpack to see how I get on.

I thought I would give Relive a try as I might be using it on my Camino. Let me know what you think.
