      See how you go. I never carried more than a litre of water, but it wasn’t very hot when I was walking. Also consider shopping your pack when you have long / hard days, it’s going to be hot or you are feeling tired. Your accommodation will help...

      The problem with the disposable sheets is that they are totally useless. They detach themselves from the mattress in about 5 seconds so fail completely to perform the function for which they are intended.They are designed for examination couches...

      I completely agree. While I'm on the Camino people from other countries often ask me "why the Camino? Aren't there lots of long distance trails in the US?". I always tell them yes, but not with albergues every 20 km or so. The only thing that...

      melbmeg replied to the thread a longer and slower day.
      One thing that hasn’t been mentioned is getting your washing dry given you wouldn’t do it until 6pm or later. But some Albergues do have dryers so maybe you could use those? I can see the appeal of what you propose. There’s no harm in trying it...

      melbmeg replied to the thread Private Rooms on the camino.
      I think that’s a good attitude. Gives you more flexibility to stop where you really want to and also gives you a taste of the more typical camino experience. Private rooms in Albergues are much better than hotels in my experience because they...
