the del Norte/Primitivo route.
Spain: From Irun to Santiago de Compostela, 500 miles.
Post 13; June 13, 2016, Monday. Travel day to Madrid, Spain, then to San Sebastián, then to Irún, the starting point.
What’s your guidebook?
The guide book we are using for this trip is “Pilgrim Route, The Northern Caminos (The Norte, Primitivo and Inglés routes),” by Laura Perazzoli and Dave Whitson, Second edition 2015. In these blog posts, I’ll probably refer to it on occasionly as “Perazzoli/Whitson,” or “TNCs.” After some exhaustive study and research, I decided this was the best book for the northen route. I’m sure that once we are on the Camino, we will be getting a lot of information from other trekkers re what their guidebooks from Germany, France, and elsewhere say.
I’m on the plane now to Madrid, then to San Sebastián, then to Irun. I’ll arrive tomorrow night sometime.
Oh!, yes, we arrive sometime tomorrow night.
Nate and I are in a “deep” discussion now about “guide” books. He explains how the Bible is “the” guide book in all matters concerning life. That’s his first, main, and top of the mountain, guide book.
He notes that the Perazzoli/Whitson book, TNCs, will suffice for the ground work during the Camino.
I agree. I’m playing it safe.
