There are groceries along the way

You will never really run out of food for there is always a grocery in the small town you are at. Make your own food but don’t feel like you need to ever carry it to the next city because you will still find another grocery there. You can usually get meats, breads, cookies etc., including cheap wine should you find a group of people you wish to drink with.


Just like the bed in the albergue, the grocery can easily be one of the places you constantly look forward to on your day. After burning all those calories in the hike, feel free to reward yourself with the good food at the grocery. You can usually make something yourself that can beat local food. I’m not saying the local food is bad, its just that at a cheaper cost, you can have a very good meal.

One particular favourite meal of mine consists of sliced pieces of ham, cheese and bread. A side of olives and for dessert I eat a whole can of peaches. All of that is usually enough to satisfy my fat-burning Camino appetite.

    There is a lot of truth to this. Every town or city along the Camino will usually have a grocery with cheap and good food for you to try. My wife and i were very pleased with our experiences with them.
