For our honeymoon camino in March we booked some accommodation before we went, and sorted the rest on the way. Since it was before Easter, most albergues were closed anyway and this was a couple’s camino so we liked having our own room. We did bring silk bags though, just in case.
The weather was unseasonably warm and glorious for that time of year – thanks, Jimmy! – and we actually never once used our rain gear! We were practically alone on the trail most of the time, probably because we started after albergues had thrown their pilgrims out as well as it being early in the year. An amazing experience and fantastic memories.
