- Planning : Camino Frances - Oct 2022
I am worried about food. I will be on the Frances starting in SJPDP, and flying from Canada into Paris. Will be on a very small budget and trying not to buy food at the airport or in Paris. I keep thinking what should I bring to last me to, at least to Roncesvalles and maybe beyond a little. I know it sounds strange, its a real worry I have. I am thinking to bring dried fruit, dates and nuts and declare it on arrival into Paris. They ussually let me through with it. Then bringing crackers and cheese to consume on the plane. No meals provided, I think. Will need food options for when I arrive in Paris and many hours in transit to get to SJPDP. Then things to consume on my way over the Perenees. How expensive is food in SJPDP ? I was hoping to pick up 2 baquettes cheese and a few other things for my walk over the Pyrenees. I have read the " Coffee Van " at the summit, is kinda expensive and having Orrisson make you a sandwitch, is pricey too. I was even thinking to leave home with Liver pate and jambon in very small tins with a lift top and to bring crackers.. Those caught my eye in the dollarstore and I thought that might be perfect for my trip. I plan on bringing instant coffee sachets for the 1st few mornings and hydralyte electrolites to mix in with water for during the day. I heard the ones in Spain is not so tasty and to bring from here. I know I will have lots of room in my bag, when I leave home, to carry all kinds of food, to get me through the 1st few days. Those who have been in a similiar state of mind, and low on funds, what did you do to make it work? Please share.
