    Orisson & Borda

    Shaving,......probably more for the men!

    FWIW Google "wet shave" so you can have that experience at home. I grew my beard out when Covid arrived but before I wet shaved at home with a safety razor and used to use a hot wet wash cloth. I did get all the other gear too. My excuse for not doing this on the Camino is you can't take a...

    Small hip/shoulder pack

    I use that pack to carry my sketchbook. I use an A5 size hardcover sketch book that's 5.8" by 8.3" It will fit pens, pencils and a lot of other stuff. I would say its perfect as a bum bag and a bit less so as a sling, since it tends to tilt a little. However its very comfortable no matter...

    How many nights should we spend in Pamplona before heading to SJPdP

    Pamplona its one of my favorite cities too! Its a got a nice easy going vibe. I've stayed the night in Pamplona before heading on to SJPdP, to ease the jet lag before, and will do so the next time I do the walk.

    Searching for a walking quote

    Or perhaps: Kierkegaard, who said, “Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts.”

    What camera do you use?

    I mostly use my phone camera, a Galaxy Note 20, image quality wise it still goes toe to toe with my wife's latest iPhone. I've taken a large sensor point and shoot (Fuji X100v) that fits in my waist bag, but it hardly gets used except in the evenings. If you're doing video, then a GoPro or and...
