I usually walk with a front pack, where I keep my guide book, documents, iPad, camera, sunscreen etc... here's my packing list, along with approximate weights, and a photo of everything laid out - will it all fit into my pack???
Since returning from our Via Francigena, I've added some notes to some of the packing list below, and put a line through things we didn't need.

Amazing how rolling things up, rather than folding - and then compressing into stuff sacks can result in everything fitting into the pack! clothes on the table are what I'm wearing on the plane. I'm undecided about wearing boots or sandals on the plane...
Ready for our Cammino! I've attached my scallop shell from 2009 Camino de Santiago to my pack - with a spare shoelace! (just in case)
Ciao until next week!
