If I get to Spain


I would like to do the short walk to St. James Compostela.  Have any readers done the Camino de Santiago?

I have never done it. But I have read that starting in Sarria, is the shortest way , that still allows you to get the compostela ( credential that says you made the pilgrimage). Also there is the Camino Portuguese, which begins in Porto, and takes about 2 weeks. Hope this helps.

Ian, great and thanks! Porto sounds good as well.

I have done the last couple of miles and paid my respects at the tomb of St James.

More seriously, you should talk to @Frererabit, and see http://brotherlapin.com

Bruvver, will do and nice that you did that-nice also that you can make serious comments. God bless you always.

Your welcome. There are several good sites/forums in regards to the Camino.

I remember seeing a photo of the cathedral several years ago, and thought to myself I need to get there some day. Then I found out about the Camino,and since I love to walk .... well someday.
