Luggage and bags:
If you are travelling Anywhere and using a Rucksack / Backpack as your luggage then I would Strongly recommend that you use some form of Rucksack / Backpack Pro-tector !!
This tip is from my own personal experience, as I have had Big Problems having my Rucksack damaged or even destroyed by airlines, particularly on Airport Carousels,
What can happen is that one of the straps can drop in-between the lats on the moving Carousel and then as your Rucksack goes around a corner, the strap gets ripped off, I lost the entire back and carrying system from one of my rucksacks !! You Definitely don't want this to happen, Especially on the way out to start walking your Camino !!
As The Rucksack Pro-Tector has the second function as a water-resistant liner for your rucksack. It is a particularly useful piece of kit for Camino walking, Other rucksack protectors leave you with the problem of having to carry it around with you for the walk with no useful function !!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I have tried many of the Rucksack / Backpack Protectors that are available on the market and was disappointed with how they performed, So after having many problems with these decided to design and manufacture my own.
Full details of how this came about are written up on my Nepal page.
So, Obviously my own recommendation would be to get your Rucksack / Backpack Protector from Pro-Tector
Miscellaneous: Also, after successfully designing, producing and selling the Rucksack Pro-tector for several years, I have now introduced some new lines such as a Pro-Tector Travel Wallet and a Pro-Tector Document / Valuables Travel Pouch.
If you think that any of the above would be of benefit for yourself on your own travels then please take a look at my web-site
You will walk a lot, bring comfortable shoes.
Miscellaneous: Pack lots of white pants and white shirts. Everyone wears white with red sashes and scarves. You can find the sashes and scarves easily and reasonably at the Festival.
Typically white shirt, white pants, with a red handkerchief around your neck and a red sash stylishingly around your waist. You can buy everything once you get there, but if you are concerned about fit, you may want to bring your own pants and shirt. One size may fit all, but I am not Mr. All's size.
After the morning run, I would change into my nicer stuff. The local Basques add a little patriotic green. 24 out of 25 are in festival attire.
