The total distance is 1300kms (if I don't get lost!). This way is not well walked and it is said that you need to be proficient in Spanish. My Spanish is terrible and I've been unable to source an English guidebook. However (he says - trying to reassure himself), Ken Wilson (one of the three amigos from the camino Frances) has kindly posted me his French guidebook of the route. My French is only marginally better than my Spanish but this guide has good maps so a big thanks to Ken. I'm delighted that Sarah will join me at Toledo to walk for a week, and my friend Keith Castle will join me for another stretch from Avila. Apart from that, I'm on my own. I'm somewhat daunted about these solo stretches but Geoff Travers (the third amigo) assures me I will value the experience.
I hope to set off from Valencia on May 3. If you are able to follow along with the blog I'd be glad of your company. Drop me a reply from time to time so I know you are there.
