- Hoping to do my first Camino Frances in April 2023
Hi, I’m doing my first camino hopefully starting the Frances in mid April. I realise what most of the answers to this question will be. I know there is a lot of criticism for The Way because they all wear jeans( I love the film, by the way). I have most of the gear I need, except my backpack now. Can’t afford it at the mo. I was walking today on a crisp, icy sunny walk and wore my jeans. I knew it wouldn’t rain but still had my waterproof trousers in my pack. I’m walking with a pretty full 20l pack at the moment and working my way up. I was so comfortable. Is it really stupid to wear jeans on the camino? Who’s done it. Shorts are not an option at the mo in the UK and I find my trousers with zip off legs really annoy me and my full very expensive trousers are heavy. Anyone?
