    Help me review this packing list for my students

    I would recommend that your students take some seasoning with them. Salt and pepper are rarely available on the camino, if you like spicy food a small bottle of your favourite hot sauce will not go amiss.

    Credit Card Nightmare

    How do you load credit cards with cash? I understand that you can put money on a prepaid debit debit card. Is revolut available as an app in Canada because that is really useful for foreign currency transactions.

    New backpack strange.

    When I did the Frances I used a Lowe Alpine I found the osprey packs too short for my height. I found it a wonderful pack, I picked up so many souvenirs that it was almost 20kg when I finished yet it actually felt much lighter when I finished than when i started.

    Where do you carry your valuables?

    I must be an exception to the rule. I kept my national passport, credencial and wallet in the top pocket of my rucsac. I like to know where things are. At albergues they would stay in my bag when I went to the shower my phone would be left on my bed or plugged into to a socket to charge. The...

    Passport warning — expiration date

    There have been horror stories of people waiting upto 10 weeks for a new UK passport. I applied online on 4th August and the new passport will be delivered today. I think the press got carried away when perhaps 1 individual had to wait 10 weeks because of either errors or special circumstances...

    Things I'd bring, who cares about the weight

    I've found that using regular cooking oil did hinges squeaking. It may need re doing dinner rather than later but you will be gone.

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Simulation inside a plane with Covid

    "they" already know where you have been, when the immigration officer scans your machine readable passport they can see this info. It would not be too difficult to link your vaccination status to your passport enabling you to travel .

    Yet another health threat to worry about

    Carrying an axe answers most of the equipment questions. The ax will take up most of your 10 per cent body weight allowance, so, no sleeping bag, shoes not boots, no poles, water bottle not bladder. As you grind the axe away the weight in the pack can be replaced with souvenirs.

    Getting to Europe by cargo ship

    When I was in the RAF I spent 3 weeks on HMS Ocean, those Matelots are weird, speak a different language and have no sense of humour. It put me off cruises and all in holidays for life.😃

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Cancellation Blues sympathy thread

    Don't view the cancellation of a trip as the end of your journey see it as part of the journey. All endeavours have set backs and worries even though you may have mitigated some worries by having an app, a guide book and booked accommodation for every stage in order to have a successful...

    Change to post reediting rules?

    As far as I understand you have a week to sober up, if it takes longer than that, a spelling mistake in a forum is probably the least of your worries.
