sleeping bag

I had this naive notion that I would be able, if need be, to just wander off the track and lie down and sleep. I had done this all over Africa in my youth. But the Camino is strange. Practically every kilometre of it from Seville to Santiago is fenced with barbed wire for starters. It is often difficult to make a simple toilet stop, particularly for women, as you just can't get off the footpath. A lot of the camino is busy road, again wired off. Take cash, about 60 euros a day should do the trick, and use the many inexpensive hostals, hotels, restaurants and bars. Better to save up for a few months more than skimp the trip for want of a couple of thousand euros. It's a great walk.
