I have 40 days left and every single day that goes by, I think about May 25th. It’s almost becoming a bit distracting! I have drawn up a packing list (http://is.gd/ivLBo8) which is more or less the same as last year. A few changes however…I don’t plan on bringing as much gadgetry as last time, my iPhone will do. I don’t need a camera if I have the phone. I reckon I will get by without a guide book or reading material. I’ve thought more about getting blisters and aches and pains so I’ve added in a few things more if and when my feet turn into a war zone. Apart from that, there are no major changes.

Hi. I'm David and welcome to the Clearskies Camino blog. I live in Dublin, Ireland and have walked a number of pilgrimages including the Camino Francés and Camino Portugués. My love for writing began on returning from my 2nd Camino de Santiago in June 2012. I had been writing a journal while on the Camino Francés and it made sense to write my thoughts online. As the Camino became more of my life, so did the urge to give something back. The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage but in my eyes, it is so much more. It is a great way of meeting people and a great way of getting away from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. There are many Caminos to Santiago from all across Europe, but my experiences have mainly been on Camino Francés; an ancient trail covering 800 kilometres across Northern Spain ending in the city of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
