- Walked with a group that gelled and appreciated each others company. Regrouping as we walked along was handled well and was no problem.
All logistics concerning bag carriage and group meals was well organised. Accommodation was the usual Explore standard.
Using the bus for some transfer on the early days proved beneficial to get used to the walk.
Personally, I became more in tune with the emotions of the Camino as we continued and came across so many making the same journey. Reaching the Iron Cross brought an unexpected tear to my eye, and of course arriving in Santiago, and the evening service, was the culmination of an inspiring journey.
Being able to walk day after day is an important consideration - not rely on getting fitter as you go along, and be confident about footwear.
