This is it, folks….

Emptying the backpack of its content to familiarize with the process of repacking in the dark and to ensure nothing is left behind unintentionally. My guess is that at least 30% of this stuff will never be needed, and likely also a good share of the total weight. Difficult is to know upfront what exactly is it.


On the right two pairs of convertible long-short pants, 4 microfibre t-shirts and 3 underpants, socks with lining, rain coat and a long sleeved and hooded sweater with front zip. Covered in an orange sleeve bag, a pair of walking sticks, a present of my good friend Massimo. In the center, my sleeping gear, a pair of gloves and a poncho, a dirty laundry bag with a hanging line and pins and a small lunch box with a spoon-fork and a Swiss army knife, a quick-dry towel and toilet paper. On the left all the toiletries, first aid kit, slippers and sandals, torch light with spare batteries, electric and solar chargers, and the ultra light backpack. In addition I shall also use a belt pouch bag with few other amenities.

Near the towel there is also a clear bag with the stones given to me by my family and other dearest friends and to be left behind during the Camino to symbolize the letting go of the troubles of the soul.

Hope God will provide the real other necessities along the way.

  1. Non so se li hai gia’ messi nella lista dei first aid, ma dei sali per pediluvi in caso di ponfi e dei cerotti (tipo scholl’s) per eventuali ponfi in zone di frizione.
    Per I’ll resto hai tutto, forse qualche mutanda usa e getta di carta aiuta, sai la prostata…
