Pilgrimage Sarria-Santiago April 2018

This is my second Camino de Santiago de Compostela and I am gathering everything together for the last leg of the trip.  I want to help you with your packing if you are walking the Camino. As the walk is longer this year, I have made some adjustments to my packing.

Essentials: Cross trainers with insoles – I find these trainers much lighter than hiking boots as they are lighter, insoles help with plantar fasciitus, a painful foot problem. A  massage ball to stretch and release any pain after each day’s walk. Fleeces, a light weight jacket with a hood, T-shirts, long sleeve breathable to wick away any moisture. The temperature can change, it could be chilly or hot, so you need to prepare for unpredictable weather. Leggings, these are a super, easy, light weight garment which can be rolled up and do not to forget to pack your shorts. Walking sticks, you can buy these from any outdoor store.  A good supportive sports bra which avoids friction. Separate shoes to change into, socks (loads of pairs). First aid kit – plasters, taping, anti-inflammatory medicines.  Maps, Credencial del Peregrine. Sun tan cream, glasses, camera, hat.  Have a great Camino.
