Hi there

I am starting the Camino in a couple of weeks and, like everyone else, I'm trying to reduce the weight of my pack! I am a photographer and I'm taking my film camera and am wondering if anyone can tell me how easy it is to get professional film in the cities/large towns along the Camino Frances??

If I know I can buy more along the way, obviously I don't need to bring as much with me. But I also don't want to spend hours and hours searching for places to buy it....dilemma!

I would really appreciate any help/advice anyone has to offer - And yes, I know digital is more practical BUT I am working on a particular project and would prefer to use film. I am also taking a compact digital for 'happy snaps' ;)
The film I will be wanting is Ilford Black and White and Kodak Portra.

Thanks so much in advance!! :)

I'm sure you won't have a problem buying film in Spain.
If you are concerned though, you could post a few packages with film to yourself along the trail. If you are walking the Camino Frances you could send to the Post Offices below.
Address the parcels to yourself with your name as it appears in your passport (which you will have to produce when collecting your parcel)
