VDLP Route Sep-Nov 2023.jpg

Somewhat Covid-delayed, September 2023 will see Janet and me stride out from Sevilla for the 1,000 kilometre journey to Santiago de Compostela along the Via de la Plata (shown in purple).

The purple route takes us from Sevilla to Granja de Moreruela, where we will divert left onto the route called the Camino Sanabrés (shown in blue).

This will be our third "big" walk, after the Camino Frances in 2015 and the Camino Portuguese in

Of course, to partially misquote good old Bobby Burns, "the best laid plans of mice and men"may intervene, but assuming not, key dates are:

  • 16th Sept 2023 (two days after my birthday), depart Sevilla

  • 13th Oct, arrive Salamanca, roughly the half-way point

  • 19th Oct, join the Camino Sanabrés.  We'll have covered a little over 600 klms by then

  • 7th Nov, arrive into SdC, 53 days since we first left Sevilla

I plan to post regular updates on my blog, here.

* click on the title above to see the whole route close up - you can zoom and scroll in Google Maps.

The plan will be to turn this page into a daily blog.  Plenty of time to plan for that.
