In an effort to dispel the cloud of gloom hanging over my head I've been combing the internet for items that might cheer me and I just came upon the solution to the eternal discourse on how to carry your water - a CHANEL water bottle we should all have one, perhaps Ivar might like to start stocking them before the rush to buy sets in?
What no diamonds!!!
Could not possibly use this without it being encased with diamonds

Not sure if I should be laughing or crying, especially when I can get a 500-750 ml bottle from any supermarket for less than $2.5 (Oz - or about E1.75) and when its days are over thoughtfully place it in a recycle bin. Cheers

Both, cry at the wastage but imagine one of these falling off somebody's pack and they have to descend and reascend O Cebreiro to retrieve it - ROLF is the expression I think?

Diamonds? - they'd clash with my tiara!
Tiara!!
If you want some more diamonds Jeff to go with your Tiara, I can lend you some ...I have collected so many over the years.
Now what about buying me that bottle you mentioned above and I can glue some of them onto it ..just add the superglue in the Jiffy bag
Thanking you in anticipation!!

After....... 1 second deliberation, I prefer the style of my good old, battered and dented Cancer Research drinking flask (which I probably won't take on my first Camino as it's heavy!)

A bit chichi for a guy don't you think? Unless Chanel do a DPM one.
Perfect for the SNAG and the Metro-sexual man, I understand - studded with pink pearls and blue sapphires for an androgynous look 😉

How things have changed:

The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink , being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.

After walking 8 different caminos and countless treks in the western Sierras, the four corners area of the southwest U.S. (which should be on everyone's bucket list) and the Blue Ridge, the C2C and Offa's Dyke (the most exhausting of all walks), the hands down winner is a San Pelligrino bottle. It holds a lot, is tall so easily accessible from most backpacks which put the bottles in positions difficult to reach while walking, weighs nothing, easy to clean and lasts forever. My two bottles have now logged over 3000 miles.

And besides, who on the Camino could resist "Saint Pilgrim's" water?

Google is (sometimes) your friend. Little boys often used to wear dresses too:

View attachment 69445

The Italian soccer team of Juventus Turino once was playing in pink jerseys and ordered new ones in England. Because of a mistake they got the now well known black and white striped ones. They stayed with this design. But pink is still used some times for the away shirt.

..., the hands down winner is a San Pelligrino bottle.

After I have lost my Nalgene bottle on the first day I made the rest with a belgian plastic bottle from Spa. Two of them are still part of my essential hiking gear.

Hi ... they are difficult to clean with such a narrow neck.

Got rid of it!

Why? Because of the difficulty of cleaning it? How about Shinobi42’s suggestion of using Chanel 5? That should be easy enough, especially on a camino where you can get it in quantities in the smallest minimarket!
