Santiago De Compostela

Next year, if travel is still possible and my bank account still exists I'd like to go to Santiago De Compostela with my friend. Apparently there are lots of different 'ways' to make the Pilgrimmage. There is an English way, presumably where people take a thermos of tea and talk about the weather, a French way, a Portugese way, a Primitive Way and others. I wonder which way is the best?
