I am going to take advantage of the quiet moments that isolation offers me while the coronavirus crisis lasts to start planning or rather compiling info that I can use for my Camino during the Jacobean Holy Year 2021 and 2022.

After all that is going on, I am sure it will be a special year as well as a Holy Year. Given the significant decrease that the number of pilgrims will suffer due to the restriction of movements even when they start to rise progressively in a few weeks, I have the feeling that next year will be one of those that will break statistics.

Looking forward to returning to the Camino… in winter and alone to discover new fellow pilgrims.

For me, this Camino will be the French Camino starting in Saint Jean Pied de Port and ending in Muxia/Fisterra. I will have completed the Aragón branch to Puente La Reina and will leave the El Salvador and Primitivo extensions for other occasions. I wish I had all that time but dedicating a month is already going to be a challenge. For planning, although I don’t like that word beyond getting the train/bus tickets to the start of the Camino, I’ll use the resources I’m leaving here.

Since I have time, I will start by making a short list of technological gadgets that I will take with me in order to document my Camino: videos, personal reflections and comments from my companions.
