My packing list Camino spring and autumn


Weight is where it's all about. So consider carefully what to take with you and if you doubt, let me know.


Backpack
Raincape (fitting over your pack), preferably with zipper
Long trousers linen or artificial
Shorts
Walking shirts 2
T-shirt/ blouse
Fleece
Underwear 3
Swimsuit
Walking shoes (light ones are okay, class AB suitable for C. Frances)
Walking socks 2 pairs
Socks 1 pair
Light sandals
Sunglasses
Hat
Walking stick(s)
Thin sleeping bag (there are extra blankets everywhere)
Sheet sleeping bag (silk is light and protects against bedbugs)
Very good ear plugs
Towel (light/small)
Plastic bag for shower
Tick removing stuff
Bandage
Headlamp (or in phone)
Mug
Pocket knife
Plastic fork/spoon
Telephone
Money
Bank card
Passport
Pilgrim's passport

Small daybackpack
A bidon or two plastic waterbottles half a liter each (it is hardly necessary to carry more, you can buy extra for really hot weather)
Toiletpaper
Sun cream
Toilet bag
Small piece of soap
Toothbrush
Toothpaste
I strongly recommend Gehwohl footcreme  (from Germany, start ten days ahead, hardly available in Spain, 1 tube= about a month)
Diary
Pen

If you want:
Walking guide
Cellphone adapter

Travel plug, depending on your home country
Cable/sdcard reader for cellphone or camera

Prepaid simcard for Spain (or buy it in Spain)
Camera
Music/ earplugs
Book
Shaving stuff

A lot of extra weight is in a heavy sleeping bag and/or to many/ heavy clothes. Or taking to much food and water with you. You don't need the heaviest walking shoes, there's a lot of easy terrain on the Camino Frances. And, best thing for the most important part, your feet: I used Gehwol footcreme. You can hardly buy it in Spain, you need one tube for a month. The best, prevents a lot.

 

NB Check the regulations for flying with only handluggage.
