I am an International Studies student with a History Minor, so this trip is right up my alley. It will be interesting to interview pilgrims that have made it the whole distance and hear their stories. I hope to be able to find out what drives pilgrims to go on the pilgrimage to Santiago, whether it be religious or not.
What I Packed
Somehow I was able to fit all my clothes, laptop, GoPro, notebooks, toiletries, etc. in my carry-on bag. Thanks to my mom for some extra packing help. I am also bringing a hiking bag stuffed full of socks, my combat boots, rain coat, laundry bag, and camel back. I am packing light because I really do not need that much stuff. All I need is a weeks worth of clothes and socks for hiking and I am good to go. I cannot wait to see how much or how little my fellow travelers will be bringing. I will see everybody in Spain soon! Buenos noches mis amigos!
