the bare minimum

Hi all,

I've taken a look around this forum and can't see anything that quite answers my questions so I hope I'm not repeating myself.

I'm heading off to do my first pilgramage in mid-march and want to take the bare minimum equipment.

So far I plan on bringing:

1 change of undies 1 change of socks
water bottle
small blanket (although I might skip this and just sleep under a jacket!)
Some sort of foot cream/banadages

I honestly can't think of anything vitally important! Please let me know if I'm forgetting something.

I only want to take a small back pack (the sort that zips onto one of the larger 30 litre ones).

Thanksin advance for your help!
