Buen Camino! Update: I noticed on my Camino that most Americans under 30 were wearing trail runners, and were quite happy with them. My feet were happiest with socks and sandals. A great look I know, but hey I'm happy when my feet are happy.

I suggest reading the book still. It was useful in prepping for my Camino, just remember to listen to your body and enjoy the journey.
I found this book to be easy to read and I liked the format. If you have never backpacked, you will find it very useful. If you are an experienced backpacker and traveler, you probably don't need this book. I agreed with the writer on packing light, but we differed on a few subjects. I found my headlamp to be very useful for packing my stuff.

Some pilgrims don't arise till late and it's nice to pack up without turning on the overhead light. Jean to Rosensvalles. It's a long day and starting out with some snacks is a great idea, as, yes, there ARE stores in Spain, but there are some long stretches without any stores. There are lots of books about lots of trails, and the Camino is no exception.
However, I was just looking for a simple book that describes the Camino in general terms, and the logistics involved if someone wanted to hike part or all of it. This book fit the bill perfectly. It covers all of the basics, from planning to packing to hiking and living on the trail. It is not, technically, a guide to the Camino. It does not suggest routes, or recommend facilities, or give distances and altitudes. Rather this is the guide you need to prepare for the trip. Read this when you're ready to start buying equipment and before you pack for the trip.
The authors walk you through equipment choices, always stressing the desirability of minimizing the weight you carry in your backpack, and encouraging the potential pilgrim to simplify. They also address common concerns about such topics as vicious dogs don't worry about them! The authors have walked the Camino multiple times, as well as done volunteer work with pilgrims.
It's very clear that they know whereof they speak in this book - you really get expert advice. The authors have a sense of humor about the Camino that is refreshing. I particularly enjoyed observations like the following: Here it is advisable to let common sense, the least common of all senses, reign. They also provide a number of interesting, amusing, and illustrative anecdotes about pilgrims. The book is also a great reference guide. Rather than include quickly outdated information, it provides an extensive appendix of useful web sites.
I found this guide very helpful because it addresses how to pack, how to choose a backpack, footwear, clothing, and all the other items that will be necessary for the Camino de Santiago. It answers many questions that new folks that want to walk The Way would have, like myself. This is not a guide that will show you which route to take, there are many, or what the mileage is between stages but a more practical guide of "how-to" do the essentials, prepare the items that you will need, and what to expect as you walk.
Myths are dispelled and a common sense approach is used throughout the book. I love the little anecdotes from other peregrinos pilgrims that are sprinkled though the book. It helps to drive the point home to use common sense and pack light. You could find this information in the many forums that are out there but this book makes it so easy to get that same information that I wish I would have had it when I first started researching.
It would have saved me a ton of time. Do yourself a favor and buy it. It makes for a great read as it is very informative but not in a dry manner, as sometimes guides can be.
I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to do their own Camino de Santiago. Vai su Amazon. Consegne illimitate in 1 giorno. Ulteriori informazioni su Amazon Prime. Torna su.
