Camino 101 Part 2: Gearing up for the Camino. If you’re planning on walking the Camino de Santiago later this year or next, we’ll be talking about things to consider when preparing for your journey. We’ll offer gear recommendations and talk about backpacks, footwear, clothing, electronics and much more. We will also provide a recommended packing list from American Pilgrims on the Camino. If you other Camino questions, we will be happy to answer those as well!
