Hi,
just wondered what everyone does re: wearing jewellry while walking the Camino? I was going to take minimal, just wear one pair of pierced earrings and no rings. I guess the less you take the easier it is to not lose it.
thanks, Jayney
 
Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

Exactly. No need for jewels anywhere on the Camino, there won't be any opportunity for dressing up! I know I always like to keep at least a little pair of stud earrings in when I travel but never take anything more than that. I alway wear a sports watch with a built-in alarm when I travel - serves two purposes and don't have to carry a separate alarm clock! Not necessary for waking up early to start walking but nice when in a hotel before/after the camino and have to wake up early to catch a flight!

Minimal jewelry! I wore a pair of small hoops that I never removed... one ring and a simple gold chain. When I got to Santiago, I bought a gold cross to put on the chain... but none of this jewelry did I ever remove. no changes, no storage... just what I wore. Keep it to a minimum.
Buen Camino,

Hi all,
I had,for me, three Camino firsts during my fourth journey earlier this year.
In Burgos a female pilgrim spent approx 30 minutes, on a dark cold morning, putting on FULL face makeup and in Astorga a male Pilgrim sprayed himself with a deodorant.
On our final day my companions and I were amazed to overtake what looked like a party of High Altitude climbers. All wore knee high snow gaiters, voluminous cotton scarves wrapped around their heads and high altitude snow goggles, in addition to the more normal clothing. I appreciate that the climb to Monte de Gozo is steep but its hardly Nepal. To add to the air of mystery around them - one walked backwards - "to help a leg injury".
The Camino is never boring.

This reminds me of a story told about Don Elias Valeña Sampedro (the priest of O'Cebreiro parish who reanimated the modern camino frances - and painted the first yellow arrows - in the 1970's).

"One day, at the end of the afternoon, he found himself on a mountainside in the Pyrenees, walking a long section of the camino with the aim of finalising the cartographic details of his new guide. The descent by way of a rugged hillside was inevitable. His muscles were feeling the effects of the steep slopes and this unaccustomed inconvenience he put down to general tiredness. He took a moment's rest but his temperament didn't allow such 'excesses" and for the few hundred metres that remained, he turned a round and walked backwards!"
