      I had to look up what skint meant as I never heard the word before. I only knew skinflint which I learned quickly is a really different meaning. Your attitude towards skint is a really healthy one. I am pretty skint myself and on the Camino just...

      Good effort with keeping the weight down - I personally wouldn't set out on Camino with a backpack without a hip belt though. Might be a risky tactic to reduce the overall weight -if that's the reason. Most advice is to take the vast majority of...
