A Friend on the Caminoa helping hand on the camino frances
Start off on the right foot.
Let’s go through an imaginary back pack and see where shaving weight off can be done…
The first place we’ll find some weight to shave off is – the bag itself. Most packs weigh at least a kilo, some weigh over two. Mine weighs 850 grams. First of all, you don’t want to have a pack that’s got lots of extra room in it. That extra room means extra fabric and a heavier pack. It also means you’ll be tempted to buy souvenirs and other things along the way.
Orisson is legendary for the rudeness of it's owner, the difficulty of the booking system, and the outrageous prices of the food and accommodation (compared to other places along the way) - but you won't wake up to a more magnificent view anywhere else along the way....
