Camino Primitivo - My Next Camino

I will be embarking on my second camino next week. This is very sudden, even for me as I have suddenly found myself free from now till the end of April before my next contract job starts.

Camino Primitivo was the first camino route, even before the Camino Franca. Alfonso II was the first who took this route when the Saint James body was supposedly discovered in Santiago de Compostela. At that time around the 9th century, only the extreme north of Spain were free of the Moors.

This journey starts in Oviedo, and with a distance of 343 km will take around 14 days.

I should be in Madrid on the 3rd April and hope to begin my journey in Oviedo on the 4th or 5th April and return home on the 20th April.

Not have enough time to get a guide for this trip from CSJ. This online guide which I had just printed will have to do.

New Camino Video

From sharfrantan. A simple but every effective video. Only words (and cool music). Just makes me want to drop everything and start another journey immediately.

Like all addictive substance or activity, the camino should carry a warning label. I still thought about it almost every day, and will be walking it again very soon.
