Diary of the Camino Primitivo 2012

In late April 2012 we left home to go to Tineo, near Oviedo, and walk the Camino Primitivo to Santiago de Compostela. Those who have followed our previous blogs will know that in 2010 due to bad weather, and lack of time, we turned back in Tineo and returned to the coast to walk part of the Camino del Norte. This year, rather than retracing our steps from Oviedo we decided to start in Tineo.

The diary below which tells of our travels and walk has now been edited to run down the page, rather than in normal blog format, so you can start at the top and read down.

There are some photos here and more on Flickr together with photos from other walks.

We have come to the end of our time on the Primitivo, but not the end of our walking. Most of the walking is in the UK but we hope to return to Spain to walk to Covadonga and the Camino del Norte in future years.

Any further walks will be on the Walking Around blog at

A few photos to start off :-

Reflective vests are useful, and required on the roads when the visibility is poor
