Camino Ball Cap

Time of past OR future Camino
2017 - Camino Frances
2019 - Camino Portugues
Well … I left this one way too late. Today I was thinking of dumping my traditional hiking hat in favour of a Camino emblem ball cap … but I left it too late and even Amazon can’t get one here before I leave for Irun on Monday. Any suggestions?
Get a spanish phone number with Airalo. eSim, so no physical SIM card. Easy to use app to add more funds if needed.
Take a bog standard ball cap and pin a scallop to it? I don't usually carry a scallop shell these days but I do have a small pewter shell badge on my hat.

Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

We started with ball caps but sent them ahead to Santiago at Pamplona and bought bucket hats with big brims all the way around. They just weren’t protective enough from the sun.

This has the extra advantage of being oh so historic. Look at all of those representations of Santiago Peregrino where he has a scallop on his broad brimmed hat. The hat seems to have been one of the most common places to display one's scallop.
€2,-/day will present your project to thousands of visitors each day. All interested in the Camino de Santiago.
Loads and loads of Camino pins and the like available all up and down the route as well as any type or style of hat/cap conceivable as well as I'm sure caps and hats with various types of Camino logos on them.
