What I wish I had packed


I ended up buying a sleeping bag because it was too cold just having a sleep liner + small blanket. I also bought thin gloves because mornings where cold. 

I bought disinfectant spray on the road, and a new soap once I've finished the one I brought. I bought a new knee support, because I gave mine to a fellow pilgrim who needed it more than I at some point. There are so many pharmacies along the way, so it's not worth carrying excess toiletries. 

What I didn't use

The only thing I didn't use was the sound recorder. I had taken it with me, knowing I might use it and might not. I have before been away missing having it, so this time I thought it would be worth carrying in case I felt inspired - and even if I didn't. I gave away my blanket once I bought a sleeping bag.
