Everytime I did the camino (you can check my experiences here and here) I had to prepare a backpack to take all the things I needed with the minimum weight possible. For the first time, I took pictures of what I put in the backpack and for my second time doing the camino this year I made a video telling what resulted and not in the first time and what I put on my backpack the second time. You can check the video here:
After doing the camino, I learnt some things from what me and my friends took in our backpacks:
- If you have space, bring an extra pair of shoes
- Take a small thermal bag with you for the food. It’s easier to find your food inside the backpack and keeps it fresh
- The same thing for the water. My bottle was huge and with water weighted a bit but it was worth it
- If you need to stop in a pharmacy to buy medicine or other stuff, buy more quantity than you need. You may need to use again or to borrom to someone.
