    Life (and the Camino) can be challenging. A little humor can go a long way toward relieving the stress. Cheers!

    Ahhhs replied to the thread Pack is too large for carry-on.
    Is it possible to exchange your pack for a smaller version of the same one? That would solve the carry on problem. To each their own of course, but 65L seems pretty large for the Camino... I started out with a 38L and am now down to 30L for the...

    Ahhhs replied to the thread Packing list question.
    I sent my pole (I hike with one) home to California from Santiago twice by itself as checked "luggage". I always take my pack as carry on and the pole is just a little too big to fit inside. No bag or cover, just an address label clear taped to...

    As always to each their own, but I loved Bilbao. I enjoyed the museum inside and out and it was lovely at night. A beautiful spot to walk around. Had a glass of wine at the outside cafe there and listened to some nice live music with the...

    Any specific thoughts about a solo female on the Le Puy route? It sounds like it may be a bit more rural...perhaps more scenic than some but maybe more isolated areas?

    I'm a woman. I hike alone and, yes, sometimes I am afraid. Nonetheless, I don't advocate "arming" hikers. Let's not go down that road, huh? Those of us from the States knows where that road leads. And it's not to safety.

    Love this thread. I was feeling a little uncertain about my solo plans for Le Puy this spring. And reading the latest crime report never helps. I've done the CF solo but wasn't sure about a new country/new language, less traveled, less...

    And tell Pat that she really doesn't need the hair dryer. They are almost non-existent on the Camino. That's what hats are for.

    Looks pretty good. I'd skip the Scrubba, coil, bug spray & head net, hair dryer, and take either a day pack OR a shopping bag. But that's just me. Oh, and maybe add a change of clothes for Mr. Bean. ;)

    I agree. Be careful not to overtrain and possibly injure yourself before departure. For me I found shorter hikes everyday to be more helpful than super long ones for training. The hard part is doing it day after day whether you feel like it or...
