Overview:

This is a video detailing all of the gear I took with me on my 2015 thru-hike of the Camino de Santiago 800 kilometers from St Jean Pied de Port, France all the way across Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. When I was looking for resources on what to bring with me for a Spring/Summer trip back then I wished there was a video that existed that walked me through some gear choices I ended up with personally along the way. This was the most magical trip of my life, I met so many people who I have come to truly love and I hope that if you are preparing for your Pilgrimage right now that this video can help you out in some way.

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment and I will definitely get back to you. I love talking gear! If you are just about to leave on your Camino, let me be the first to wish you a Buen Camino, this trip will change you in the best way. If you have already completed your journey I would love to hear your thoughts on what you brought with you as well! Lastly, if you are sitting at home watching this video wondering if you can or should do the Camino, the answer is yes!. Every step of that journey good and bad felt like a dream. I’m so grateful for the people that I met along the way and the experiences I had with them, it truly will be an adventure you will never forget!
