      2L will be too much except on one or two of the longer sections if the weather is hot ; or on the few mountain sections ; or if you are planning to walk very high kilometre averages every day. But even in the latter case, 1L to 1.5L should be...

      I’m on day 10 and just walked into Burgos. Albergues outside of stages at mostly half full. Only special ones might be completo. Mornings are freezing cold very often. At 11 I take off my layers, and consequently get sunburned after. It’s...

      Thanks for this update! I'm starting my walk from SJPDP next week and appreciate this info!

      ...I am on day eight of walking the Francés at the moment. It is quite busy. A lot of talk about beds (and the need to book ahead). I don't book. Today I tried really hard not to get a bed. I really tried. Got up late. Took my time to pack...

      I usually carried 1.5L of water. I had 3 of the store bought .5L plastic bottles, two with water and one with electrolytes and would refill as needed. I never used any of the public potable water fountains, always filled up before leaving the...

      I noticed your thread just after posting mine :) Yes, these don't look like very pleasant walking conditions, but it does not look too "unsafe", either.... I definitely will, and will respect their advice - just wondering if they will be able to...

      I carried two 1 liter Vapur folding water bottles, but only needed to fill one at any time on the Frances. They are great because they are so lightweight and the spare doesn't take up much space. They are also quite sturdy. I am still using mine...

      We each carry two, two liters of water to drink when we walk. Being hydrated not only keeps you from retaining water but also helps to keep ankles, knees and back healthy.

      I carry a 660ml bottle (about a pint). I get into the habit of taking a good swig as I enter each hamlet or village, and refill it every time there is a source. At Carrion los Condes (or similar places on other Caminos where there is a known gap...

      Let weather forecasts be part of that calculus. Crossing from SJPdP to Roncesvalles I went through 6L of water. It was sunny and incredibly windy. All of the water I drank was stripped away from my skin (no bathroom break even with all that...
