Wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen

Whether you are a hat guy or not you need to wear a hat.  Along with that you need sunscreen too. There are stretches along the Camino de Santiago that have no shade if you’re caught under el Sol then your face will pay. As well, make sure you wear sunglasses, the roads can reflect a lot of light into your eyes, which is not only discomforting to look at but damaging due to all the harmful UV rays entering your eyes in all the days that you walk.


You may easily lose your hat or sunglasses and finish your sunscreen. Don’t worry. There are enough chances especially in the cities to get these items back. If you buy a pair of sunglasses from a small store in one of the towns be sure that it is 100% UV protective. If not, then your eyes are just opening up more because you’re looking at a less bright image but then more harmful UV light will be entering your eyes.

All of these items are essential if you wish to remain a healthy individual on the Camino. You can easily lose a few days recovering or cause serious problems to your body and health if you do not treat or take care of it well.

    I once got sunburned so badly on the side of my face I didn’t walk the next day. My skin is very sensitive though. Very good advice

    This situation fits tightly in to the geometry
    from the phone. To monitor the heart rate of an individual
    is not a sillly thing. It will also give you thhe freedom oof sending flowers,
    gifts or other things as a gift at some friend’s house, that also at a finger touch,
    without calling anyone or giving lengthy details.
