    10 days without sleeping bag or liner?

    So unexpectedly I now have 10 spare days between my Europe travels at the beginning of September. I travel only with hand luggage (aka the trusty 40L hiking backpack) and I absolutely do not have space for a sleeping bag or liner which I would have no use for outside of the camino; however, the...

    First Aid Kit - Basic items to take?

    Howdy folks! I just wanted to run through my list of 12 items that I will be packing into a small First Aid Kit which I will be taking with me on the Camino Frances in September 2018. I understand that there are many pharmacies along the way and that keeping things light is a priority, but I...

    Camping Stove

    Couple of vegan Americans headed to one of the more isolated and under serviced Caminos this year. No worries - we plan on camping. What are our best European options for backpacking stove & fuel?

    Following in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims, this is Iain’s very personal account of walking the Camino de Santiago.

    Picking the right Backpack

    After reading a few threads about differing equipment for the Camino, I thought I might drop a few tips about what I think to be the second most important item we all carry, the backpack (right behind a good pair of shoes). I'm by no means an expert, but after 30+ years of backpacking, I thought...

    Rota Vicentina in winter?

    Hello there! My partner and I are planning on walking 5 days of the RV in early January 2018. I've previously walked the CF and the Camino Aragonese in spring/summer, so this will be quite different. We are just wondering about availability of accommodation and the kind of temperatures to...

    Sock Research and Recommendations (summer)

    UPDATE: I am not asking for suggestions or recommendations. I am sharing info that I found and collected that others might find helpful. Since socks and shoes are a huge decision for many on the Camino I have emailed many sock companies asking what sock they would recommend for walking the...

    Footwear for the Primitivo..... (sorry!)

    Sorry, another footwear thread. I do like it when life gives you a nice surprise. There was me thinking that family commitments left me no time to walk this May, when, suddenly, things change and I have a nice 2 week gap starting 10 May. I've walked before - SJPP to Santiago in Sept 2014...

    Sandals.. a last minute decision.

    So I have everything planned and ready for my camino this summer (June 24th from SJPP)... except for my sandals. My question is this.. is it worth the money to buy the Xeroshoes? or something equally expensive that I can walk on a trail in... just in case of blisters... or should I just get a...

    Type of Clothes to Wear While Hiking

    Hello, I'm 18 and from Texas. I will be walking the Camino Frances this June-July solo. I'm used to hot weather, however I am still very pale skinned and get burned up easily even with sunscreen. I've read some articles saying that there was little shade along the walk, so I'm concerned in that...

    Sleeping bags for Camino Ingles?

    We are first timers planning to walk the Camino Ingles in a few weeks. I've heard different things about whether you need a sleeping bag if you are staying in the albergues. Is there central heating, or is it more basic than that? We weren't planning to bring bags but perhaps that's a choice we...
