Comino Ingles

I am planning a Camino for September 2019. In all probability it will be the Camino Ingles, beginning in Ferrol. There may be limits on the number of Rambleros as in a couple of places accommodation may be limited. Also, travel out to Santiago de Compostela will be on 06.00 flight from Gatwick, taking a National Express coach from Digbeth, leaving around Midnight . The return flight enables a return by train.

( That is if EasyJet’s timetable remains the same as it has for the past few years ).

Any queries to me John Twort
