Packing List for El Camino

As the first blog of many to come highlighting our time on El Camino de Santiago – La Via de la Plata, we thought it would be appropriate to share just what we would be carrying on our backs for miles and miles, day after day as we trek through the countryside of Spain. So, whether you are planning to walk El Camino yourself and are curious as to what gear to consider or are just nosy and want to see a picture and description of all of our things, you can find information below detailing all of our possessions we have deemed necessary to lug on our back for the next 7 weeks and 800 miles.
