Camino de Santiago is planned to commence the end of August 2016 - how many miles a day is realistic for a athletic 60 yr old?
There is a film - walk the Camino you should try to find and watch. It follows a number of walkers and provides some really good insights. If you are planning to do the whole Camino it is about the 700kms and people were taking 30 - 40 + days to complete it. Each stage of the walk differs in many ways - weather, hilliness etc, training, wellbeing - blisters etc. about 5 years ago
Want is the average basic meal price at restaurants in Australia? what would I expect to pay for a sandwich for example?
There is some good guidance here. One thing you can look out for a two for one deals. Japanese stores often do this from 3 or 4 pm per day. Can stretch money if you like this type of food. Food / coffee is typically cheaper in Melbourne/ Sydney / Adelaide than Perth almost 5 years ago
