I've watched endless YouTube videos and read countless books, done all the shopping for the gear one might need; however, I can't help but think that I'm missing something. 7 kg or 17 lbs later my backpack is ready to become my best buddy (or more likely worst enemy) for the next 50 days.
This trip is a bucket list thing for me. It's meant to be liberating, great excercise, spiritual, and HARD. Can't wait to get started!
Flight leaves at 6:50 pm on Thursday and flies to Paris via Iceland. I spend a couple of days in Paris then hope a train to southern France to the base of the Pyrenees mountains and start my adventure by packing uphill. Ugh!
