Do the Camino de Santiago alone

31 for July, 2012
Doing the Camino de Santiago alone is initially no problem to have an enriching personal experience on the Camino de Santiago.
How many times have you asked yourself this question that causes so much uncertainty and which determines whether or not to do the Camino de Santiago alone since neither family nor friends can accompany me on this ancient pilgrimage route. If they don't come with me, I'm not going and I'll leave it for another time! Also, with the difficulty that always involves agreeing on dates to go on a trip. We will try to help you with this important decision.

First, we must start from the base to do the Camino de Santiago in Spring-Summer and especially the itinerary of the French Way It is a very safe route and traveled by pilgrims from around the world, so we will not be alone and will not feel unprotected.

On the other hand, we are also assailed by doubts as to whether we will get lost or not, since the fact of going with others gives us a certain tranquility. Well, the sections with the largest influx of pilgrims are very well marked. There are yellow arrows everywhere, in lampposts, posts, stones, etc. especially in the section of the Camino de Santiago from Sarria also known as Los Últimos 100 Kms which is one of the most popular and busiest routes on the entire Camino de Santiago. We do not need a map to reach the destination, the signs, the locals and other pilgrims will be happy to help us and indicate, if necessary, to make the Camino de Santiago on foot or the Bike path.

Knowing this, what is certain is that the person who walks alone is by personal decision, since many seek a spiritual retreat, meditation, relaxation ... En route we will meet other pilgrims who also do the Camino de Santiago alone or in "mini groups" of friends or families, who will always be willing to walk miles in good company and tell stories. This is precisely one of the attractions of the Camino and that of course will mark a before and after the true sense of the route and personal enrichment.

Doing the Camino de Santiago alone, gives us the opportunity to meet and walk with those people we meet en route and with whom we want to talk, we can set our own pace and not that of a group, without schedules, we will meet a little more to ourselves, we will enjoy moments of peace and harmony in line with nature ... There is no rush pilgrim let yourself go, this is not a competition, the main thing is to enjoy the Camino.

As for the departure from the accommodation, it is quite likely that you will already start the route accompanied, since you will have previously befriended other pilgrims who stay in the same hotel establishment as you. Sure you are looking forward to sharing the experience!

We are convinced that the Camino will be a unique experience of life, you will enjoy unforgettable moments and it will be an opportunity to learn from those around you and the environment. The important thing is not the destination, but the trip! The Camino a tierra santa has a halo of mysticism that makes it different from other typical hiking routes, and that evokes you to your internal forum.

Lose your fear of the unknown and venture without hesitation, since the Mundiplus Travel Team will always be providing you with support and permanent attention in whatever you need.

As you can see, it is not necessary to leave in a group since in the end you will be part of one in which you will decide who your travel companions are, by affinity, age or pace of travel ...
