The first time I walked down the Camino de Santiago the gear I had was fairly basic. I did not have much money, I was back at university as a mature student and so I had kept everything as cheap as possible. In some ways that worked, however it caused me quite a bit of pain with blisters during the first few days – then I had to get rid of my cheap boots and buy good quality walking shoes in Pamplona.
The Camino Frances
This route is the most popular of all the pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela. It is also the best supported with lots of places to stay, this however makes it the busiest also.
