    For those of you starting early April, bring your raingear !! I realize that every year things can be different, but I sure ran into a lot of moisture last year; I started walking on April 4th, 2016. Buen Camino !!

    Wow that includes a couple of stop overs to get to Madrid . . . Was it an amazing deal ? I fly out on April 1 to Madrid via Amsterdam, from Vancouver. The Amsterdam-Madrid ticket I purchased after booking the intercontinental one, total cost (return) about $1300 CAD. Buen Camino !

    Backpack in the Hold?

    For international flights most airlines will sell you a sturdy transparent bag that you can put your pack in before you check in. I think I paid $5 CAD, which was well worth is as it keeps your pack clean also. Buen Camino !

    I made the mistake of...

    That is a tricky situation, one I encountered also. It will be felt to be harsh if you say you desire to do it by yourself as it will be interpreted as 'you don't like me enough to walk with me'.

    Packing Revisited 2016: What NOT to take and etc.

    I liked using 'camping suds' instead of a soap or shampoo bar for laundry. MEC sells it for about $5. It comes in a 125 ml ( if I recall correctly) soft plastic leakproof bottle and works very well .... Anyone else used this ?
