As a complete beginner I am trying desperatley to pack as light as possible as suggested in my new osprey talon 33 (which i love). a friend has leant me a sleeping bag which seems to take up so much space, I have also been leant two cotton liners and wonder if i take them both one will do as a ground sheet to put on bed/floor and the other to sleep in... I leave tomorrow for 2.5 weeks so feel it can't be so cold and i can always put on some clothes?
It would give me so much more room,

any comments?

I took only a silk liner in August two years ago. Mostly it worked, but I had a few cold and uncomfortable nights. If you can track down an ultra lightweight sleeping bag, that might be better, but you'll survive with just the sheet. You can usually (but not always) borrow a blanket -- the Spanish word for blanket is "manta."

Buen camino!

I took a lightweight sleeping bag and a sleeping sheet and thought I wouldn't need the sleeping bag due to the heat (was on the Camino last week) but there were two nights when it got really cold and I was glad of it.

Most pilgrims seemed to have a sleeping bag, I only saw a handful who only had sleeping sheets.
