    I've made up my mind to do the Camino Primitivo in June. Many thanks to Kat Davis - I have read your blog over and over again and now I can't wait to get going. Kat, if you read this I'd like to say a huge thank you for all the great info in your blog.
    I've booked a Ryanair flight from Hahn/Germany to Santander on 9th June. From Santander I'll take the bus or train to Oviedo. I'll probably stay 2 nights in Oviedo for sightseeing before heading off. Flight back from Santiago on 30th June.
    If any of you have any tips or good advice I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

    Whilst in Oviedo, don't miss the "monumentos" on the Naranco sites. From the upper church you can take a short path from where to continue your Camino, thus avoiding to return into town.;)

    Thanks Fraluchi, the Naranco sites are definitely on my "must see" list. I love old buildings, castles, churches, ruins, can spend hours traipsing around old buildings.

    Thanks @lucymi, I'm sure you'll absolutely love it!!

    (If time permitted, you could start from Santander and walk the Norte, then branch off to Oviedo - I've not done this but I met quite a few people who did).

    Buen Camino!

    Hi Kat, actually I have been considering this vaguely as I love being near the sea, but it could mean I might not be able to make it all the way to SdC. On the other hand, if I'm short of time, I can bus some stages in between. So many decisions to make :)
    Hope your preparations for your next BIG TRIP are going well.

    Make a note of the fact that there are no regular bus services between Grandas and A'Fonsagrada. The Oviedo-Grandas route is covered once a day by Alsa.es. From A'Fonsagrada there are multiple daily services to Lugo.:cool:
