Angus and Sue's Camino Overview

Our Camino / Way of St. James / Jakobsweg / Chemin de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle

Angus and Sues Camino



From Constance on the German border on the SCHWABENWEG, through Switzerland over the Brünnig pass on to Geneva on the French border, then through France to Le Puy on the VIA GEBENNENSIS and across to Bayonne on the VIA PODIENSIS. Then down the coast to Hendaye to the CAMINO DEL NORTE and over the Spanish border to IRUN, and continuing down the coast to Santander and on to Oviedo. From Oviedo we followed the PRIMITIVO (including the Hospitales route), crossing by the CAMINO VERDE $ to Arzua and the last part of the CAMINO FRANCES into Santiago de Compstela.
