I love to walk, but I have no experience walking with a backpack. In addition to not knowing what it would be like to walk 20+ miles 31 days in a row, I also had no idea what it would be like carrying all of my belongings. For many months, all I knew was that I WANTED A LIGHT BACKPACK!!!!! I spent extensive energy thinking of and scheming ways to make my pack as light as possible. Now I consider my experience a miracle! I invested a lot of money in purchasing quality, key belongings and then benefited extremely from the rewards. Just like life at home, walking the Camino with only the most necessary and well-planned belongings, I walked all of my steps with ease! MIRACLE!
