Anyone know where a good place to pick up blister tape and that kind of stuff in Paris? I might have to pick up a hiking hat and a pair of pants that zip off into shorts too.

In Spain you can buy Compeed in the pharmacies.
Not sure about Paris. . . you could just wait until you arrive in Spain...

Hi Lemonkid-

An interesting one to look for in Paris is Aux Vieux Campeur. They have stores throughout the Latin Quarter. Otherwise any of the major department stores (BHV, Bon Marche, Fnac, Galeries Lafayette, Printemps, Samaritaine) will have an outdoor adventure section and that might be easier if you just need a few items.

And you can buy compeed at the pharmacie in Paris as well.

Best,

lynne
