The next one – Camino de Madrid
Ok, I’m not counting my short walk in September when I walk from Lisbon for 10 days on the Camino Portuguese, but I am quietly preparing for next May.
The Camino de Madrid is 315 km long and can be walked in about 2 weeks. It starts in Madrid and ends in Sahagún on the Camino Francés. Pilgrims can choose to go home at that point or continue on to Santiago. I will most likely return to Madrid to fly home as my annual leave is limited. I have purchased the CSJ guidebook which is helpful. This Camino is very quiet with barely 300 people receive Compostelas annually so there won’t be any great demand with albergues.
I am looking forward to it but there is plenty of time for planning and scheming before May.
