    Your Favorite Food on the Primitivo?

    Now for the important stuff--corkscrew?

    I agree with you Susan, one of the first things I packed was my Swiss Army knife with a corkscrew. I don't leave home without it. I also know that wine on the Camino makes everything better. Buen Camino

    "Why Walking Helps Us Think"

    Great insight, I have a tendency to do everything in a hurry. I must keep reminding myself that this is not a race, take my time enjoy were I am at that moment and just enjoy my surroundings. Live in the present not the future of we must get to the next Alberque so we don't miss out on a bed...

    Albergue Etiquette

    What does one do with his or her backpack as far as safety? Is there lockers that they can be stored in while out for dinner or just exploring the town? I know keep valuables with you at all times but my clothing and gear is also my valuable. What do you all recommend?

    "Why Walking Helps Us Think"

    When ever I have a problem or an issue that needs attention I have always gone for a walk. I always seemed to come up with an answer to the problem. Now I know why. Thank you for the info.

    This will put a smile on your face!

    "Way" cool. The guy in the video was great I don't think he walked the Camino I think he danced the Camino. Good for him. Does anyone know when this video was taken? Trying to get an idea of what time of year to help me pack for my Camino which is just a few weeks away. One more thought the guy...

    Logical way to pack a back pack

    I see from your post you carry a CPAP machine. I use one at home each night but never thought about taking it with me along the Camino. Did you use your along the Camino and if so did it disturb others in your sleeping area?
