    What was in your pack when you finished?

    How odd you all are? I shed things all the way. It is part of the camino for me - getting rid. Mentally, spiritually and physically too. The more I can leave the better I feel. I hope the things I leave are of use to others. If I finished with just the clothes I stood up in that would be a very...

    Giving Up on the Primitivo

    I carried the smallest of camping stove - not enough to cook on but you could boil a cup of water.

    Are you 70+ and still walking Caminos?

    Never fear! I stayed in a hostel with a German lady who said she was 76. The next night we were in another hostel and she pointed out another pilgrim to me. This other pilgrim had told her that she gave her ten years ie. she was, at least, 86.

    Kettles and kitchens on the Norte

    I carrried the very smallest of camping gas. Not really for cooking just to boil water, for coffee, for tea or to sterilise it. I think boiling eggs would count! I found it a great help when, for example, waiting for a coffee would have delayed my start or where there was a long stretch without...

    How necessary is a sleeping pad on the CF?

    I did not have a mat but I slept rough one night on the Norte two years ago. I was not alone but with a young German. The large hostel was full of schoolchildren and consequently all other accommodations were full of pilgrims. We found a rural ruin. I carry camping gas which meant we could boil...
