Preparation

Packing Lists

Having the right kit is essential for your Camino. It is the difference between not having an enjoyable time and wanting to return again. I made many mistakes in 2011 but with plenty of research, my back weight dropped and I had little to no foot problems in 2012. Over the years, I have been constantly researching so now my pack size is lower than it has ever been. 

Here are some of my packing lists from my previous Caminos. I hope they prove useful to you. My friend Linda has written extensively about her pack from a female point of view, on her site, details below.
