Documenting Spain’s El Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage
Now that 25,000 of you watched me get married, I think it’s only appropriate that I invite you along for the honeymoon.
My wife Amanda and I will be taking a month long trip (some 14 hours by air – with layover) to Spain, where we shall hike for 3 weeks the El Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. the 4th week we shall spend in Barcelona… most likely sitting as much as possible 😉
Along the way, I will be attempting to document via video and photo as much of the journey as possible. I may even live stream , if wifi is readily available for free. (fingers crossed)
Our friends have been amazing, sending us gear for our trip including, lightweight backpacks, sleeping bags and headlamps.
The trip itself is going to require us about 5 to 6 hours of walking/hiking a day (about 15 to 20 miles daily).
We’ll be carrying everything we need on our backs, but thankfully we’ll be staying in Hostels. (So no tents). But that still means Amanda will carry about 15 pounds and I’ll carry about 25 pounds on my back. I can say this, I normally carry a backpack with 15 pounds in it, and during Anime Expo it was on my back for 7+ hours… and that was enough. I’m a little scared of 25.
I’m hoping to put things up on a regular basis, but again this all depends on wifi access. So if daily posts are not possible I will attempt to recreate everything in the month following the trip.
Things we still need:
- In lieu of bringing a laptop, we’ll be getting an iPad2 (or similar tablet). Ideally we’d like to find one that has some easy way to transfer (and store or send to a portal drive) pictures and video from the camera.
- Light weight clothes, socks, towels, etc
- A portal harddrive, possibly one that can take an SD card and import pics/video
- Camera – as much as I’d love to bring my SLR with me, the weight I’d save by having something smaller would be hard to argue with. Though finding something both cheap, light and at the same (or better) quality as my SLR makes this seem like something I won’t be doing on my own. (so camera companies, speak now)
- Food/snacks – while we probably won’t bring much with us, it would be nice to have an initial store of health snacks to keep us going for the first leg of the Pilgrimage.
