Make the Camino de Santiago alone

July 31, 2012
How many times have you asked this question that causes so much uncertainty and determines whether or not to do this thousand-year pilgrimage route. But they accompany me, I do not go and I 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 basis that the Santiago's road in Spring-Summer and especially the French Way It is a very safe route and traveled by pilgrims from all over the world, so we will not be alone and we will not feel unprotected.

On the other hand, we are also assailed by doubts about whether we will lose or not, since the fact of going with others gives us some peace of mind. Well, the stretches of greater influx of pilgrims are very well marked. There are yellow arrows everywhere, in streetlights, poles, stones, etc. especially in the section of The Last 100 Kms. 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 us, if necessary, either on foot or by bicycle.

Knowing this, what is certain is that the person who walks alone is by personal decision, as many seek a spiritual retreat, meditation, relaxation ... En route we will meet other lonely pilgrims 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 will certainly mark a before and after the true meaning of the route.

Going alone initially, gives us the opportunity to meet and walk with those people we know on the road and with which we want to talk, we can mark our own pace, without schedules, we will know ourselves a little more, we will enjoy moments of peace and harmony in harmony with nature ... No pilgrim haste let yourself be carried awayThis is not a competition, the fundamental thing is to enjoy the Camino.

Refering to departure from the accommodation It is quite probable that you already start the route accompanied, since previously you will have established friendship with other pilgrims staying in the same hotel establishment as you. Surely they are willing to share 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 surroundings. 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 your internal forum. Find your pilgrim attraction.

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

As you can see, it is not necessary to go out as 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 rhythm of march ...


… Because every great march begins with a small step, go ahead and take your own on the “Main Street of Europe”

Good Road and Carpediem!
