  1. Thanks for the good information you’ve posted. Have you decided to walk all the way to Santiago in 2015? (I saw a previous reference to only walking to Salamanca this year.) When do you expect to start? I look forward to following.

    1. I will only be walking from Seville to Salamanca this spring. However, it looks like I will be able to complete the route in September. Since there is limited info on the VLDP I just thought I would put as much up as possible. I arrive in Seville on April 7th and will begin walking on the 9th or 10th depending on how I am feeling and if I have had a chance to see enough of Seville. Thanks for following!

  2. Hi Andy! Thanks for all of the great comments and resources. Looks like your departure date is just a month away. I am leaving on April 28 and only can be gone a month due to work at the store. I am thinking I may only make it to Leon and then fly home out of Madrid. I cant make the Gathering of Pilgrims weekend However I did join and just got my Credencial del Peregrino!
    Bien Camino

    1. Hola Rod, I am excited to be going again. As you can see from my blog I have only taken about 30 days to walk the Camino Frances. you are going to love it. There is great bus service in Spain so Walk until you need to fly home and then grab a bus and head for the Airport. I will be there at the same time so keep in touch.
