Should I Stay....or Should I Go!!
I am from Scotland and have like so many others this year had to postpone my Camino, which was to be the VdlP. I rescheduled to begin on Sept 17th and have been watching the COVID related news with a watchmakers eye.
The news coming to the UK was that the increase in cases were in the north and south-east predominantly. Though cases were still being reported in Seville as well. More recently I have read there is now a decline in cases being observed. However, I appreciate this is a moving target which is hard to predict. My puzzle to ponder is as the VdlP is a quieter and initially more remote Camino, is it likely that much of the Camino infrastructure - albergues, cafes, hostals etc... be closed. Plus is it likely to be pilgrim free too. I ask because much as I enjoy walking on my own I delight in the companionship of cafes and albergues, the meeting of new friends who you bump into again and again.
I have to make a decision by the 11th Sept and would appreciate and information about the current situation, and the wisdom of (at least starting - with the option to return to the UK to self-isolate should the need arise)
Any suggestions, thoughts or advice will be welcome
My main concern will be alberques (that I think are to be open being closed) lack of accomodation or places to eat/buy food
