I'm thinking of going on a pilgrimage. Kind of odd to write that. I would like to go from France (beginning route as yet undecided) to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. I'm just looking into it right now, so I only read a little about it so far. It would take a couple of months, as far as I see. However I'm trying to determine the budget for such a trip. I've travelled around before, but never had a trip like this before….has anyone done this? Could anyone give me an idea of how much they spent on such a trip? I understand it would mostly go on food, accommodation and little details (laundry?), since the rest is done on foot. I can see some of the trails have gotten quite popular, so I'm not sure if the prices with these have also gone up and whether some routes are completely crowded with tourists with sun hats or if they are alright. Any tips or suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks a lot,
