After walking the Camino
15 times and leading 11 groups, I have seen a lot. Today, because there are so many international pilgrims walking the Camino, the problems have multiplied. Also, with so many companies offering group tours, they don't have the time to offer personal training to each participant. And, there is now so much information available, it's difficult to determine what is the best solutions. It needs to be sorted and offered at one point of contact
The most common concerns about pilgrims are:
- They have not trained to walk 20-30 kms a day
- They often carry a heavy backpack that is improperly packed
- They don't have the right boots/shoes/sandals/socks for their feet
- Don’t know basic skills for hiking long distances day after day
- Are not sure of how to prevent blisters/injuries or how to treat them
- There are more "older" pilgrims and their bodies recover more slowly
- They want to have a personal or spritual experience that changes their life!
