Camino de Santiago continued

The essence of the Camino walk is to rid yourself of all unnecessary earthly posessions. I carried a backpack weighing only 7kg (including the pack and a sleeping bag) and by the end of the journey I felt as though I could have managed with even less 'stuff'. All along the way pilgrims leave things they feel they no longer need and place them on the 'scarecrows' alongside the path.
