In a previous blog post, I received some great questions about training for and walking the Camino de Santiago. Here are answers to 2 of those questions.
Question: Would you ever during a walk, not make it to a village before dark?
Answer: I would never recommend not making it a village before dark, unless that is part of your plan to camp out and you have the requisite gear. Here is a link to a global sunrise, sunset time website. You can choose your location, and print a summary for the year. For the months of June and July In Santiago de Compostela the sun rises around 7 am and sets around 10 pm. Our plan is to start early each morning. This means being on the road by 7 am walking an average of 20 km’s per day.
