Ours definitely was and we had to put it several times on a diet.
In the planning phase of your Camino Adventure you’ll be spending a lot of time on your gear. It happened to us.
There are a lot of articles out there trying to capture the ‘Ultimate Camino Packing List’. Unfortunately, there is no such thing.
The quest of picking one item per Camino Packing List Category that I couldn’t do without on my Camino continues. While it was somewhat difficult in the previous category (General Gear), today it’s going to be a lot easier. So much, that the item I picked is already in the title of this post: my Camino Buff.
Let’s start with the name, because ‘Buff’ is used nowadays to indicate any of the available seamless, tubular garments. Yes, a simple tubular garment can be obtained at a very low cost. However, they aren’t all seamless and their fabric and the way they are produced are the reason why they are cheap. Do they work as well as the original Buff? No. We tested it.
One of the major topics on your to-do-list when preparing for your Camino is the answer to the question ‘What do I need to put on my Camino Packing List’?
If I compare our first camino packing list with the current one I can’t help laughing my socks off. But more of that in the next couple of posts on this daunting topic…
I can reproduce our current camino packing list here in 5 seconds. You would be the proud owner of yet another packing list, increasing yet again your doubts on what to take and what to leave behind.
The truth is, your camino packing list is personal and everyone is different. I prefer to take it step by step, let you decide for yourself if you agree on my choices – and provide more info on that item so you can make an adequate decision based on your personal needs.
