The Camino is unlike most other hikes where you may not know what to expect at the end of the day. On the Camino, you can be assured a room and food. Most towns have accommodations and restaurants, cafés or “mercados” where you can purchase food. If the albergues are full, you only need walk a few more kilometers to reach the next village, or pay a little more to stay at a private hostel, inn, or hotel. As the expression states, “The Camino provides.”
Not having a specific itinerary is very freeing. If a town interests you, stay longer. If you are tired, stop early. If you are enjoying the walk, continue on. The spontaneity adds to the adventure.
