The Camino Frances is the most traveled way to Santiago de Compostela. In English it’s referred to as The French Way and it’s definitely the most popular Camino route. It runs from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port on the French side of the Pyrenees to Roncesvalles on the Spanish side before making its way to Santiago de Compostela through the major cities of Pamplona, Logroño, Burgos and León. If you ever walked that Camino it might be time to start thinking about your next adventure in Spain. You never know when the Camino is going to call you again, right?
The Camino is safe, probably even safer than the average downtown neighborhood in an average sized city. That being said, if you are travelling alone it is always good to stay alert and follow your gut feeling. If you travelling alone in a foreign country, a number of buddies to ‘have your back’ is a comforting feeling and there’s nothing wrong with some comfort in our lives. You can read more about safety on our special safety-dedicated page.
‘CAMIGAS is a networking group for women who are traveling on the Camino de Santiago and who want to buddy up with other women for companionship and safety’.
This is their introduction on the page about what CAMIGAS is. I have been a member of the group for a while now and I can tell you it is MUCH more than that.
