I am sorry for the very late response. I agree with you that the best route for you to start will be the English Way. The start is supposed to be A. Coruña, but since it will be less than a hundred kilometers from there to SdC, the ideal place to start will be in the seaside town of Ferrol. Fly into A. Coruña and take a bus to Ferrol. From there, it's about a 116km walk, spread out in 5-6 days to Santiago de Compostela. The walk was amazing, the landscape was beautiful.
If it's your first time, I would suggest you go with a group, and age does not matter as long as you are fit, we have met 76 year olds and even 80s walking as much as 200 km. Finish point of SdC, there is an airport where you can take your flight home.
