Today was fun, all Camino related. I spent the morning in Dublin city centre at a Spanish class devouring the future tense (not something I am common with) before taking a trip to my favourite outdoor store to purchase last-minute Camino items. Thank you Christmas vouchers!
1 ) Columbia full zip fleece – I have a number of fleeces but am not comfortable to bring them on Camino, so I decided to take another visit to town and buy a fleece that I had worn previously. Columbia is a great brand and I wore this type of fleece for my 2012 to 2014 Caminos, although a different colour. Not a bad price too.
2) Tried and tested – Concentrated soap – I have been using this since 2012 to wash my clothes. As the old saying goes, if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. I see no reason to change for my upcoming Camino. The Lifeventure soap is a great price, it’s handy and you can use it for everything. Great for washing clothes, yourself and everything else for that matter. It is sold in a 200ml size also if your trip is longer.
3) Superfeet insoles – Another tried and tested item. I have been using them since I returned from Sarria in 2012. That year, I suffered from plantar fascia and blisters and when I got home, I was advised to get these soles. I haven’t looked back since. I buy a new pair every couple of years. I just haven’t got around to buying a new pair of soles since I bought my new pair of Salomon trail shoes.
So that’s it. You can find my check list here.
Is there anything I am leaving out? Do you think I am bringing too much? Let me know in the comments below.
