One more year the Paq Mochila of CORREOS transports the pilgrim's luggage from stage to stage
More and more pilgrims are encouraged to carry out the Way of Saint James and return to their homes full of enriching experiences. And for many, that is the only burden worth bearing. To prevent injuries, to walk more comfortable and free or to avoid dislikes, specialized services like the Paq Mochila of El Camino con CORREOS, transport the backpacks and luggage of the pilgrims stage by stage, village to village, shelter to shelter.
A service born of the postmen who shared the route with the pilgrim day by day, who are aware of the demands of the age, the importance of prevention on the Camino and that carrying the backpack is, today, a Unnecessary weight, for more than sufficient reasons:
It is the first motive and the most important to carry out the Camino de Santiago free of charge. Although the general recommendation is that no lump should exceed 10% of a person's body weight, it is a very difficult maxim to meet. Back pain begins for many pilgrims in the first stage and with the days not only gets worse, but it ends up affecting other parts of the body. Tendinitis, foot problems, and more intense prostrates are a direct cause of weight walking. The Paq Mochila allows, from the beginning, to contract the complete transfer to the whole Camino, or along the route. As you prefer.
Regardless of the stages that you want to do: there are clothes, accessories and items to put in the backpack yes or yes. Not having to carry the backpack on, it gives you wide sleeve when it comes to preparing it and have all the things you need. In fact CORREOS moves luggage with enough capacity to carry clothes and spare footwear, cleaning accessories or even books to relax at the end of the day.
The summer season is chosen by the majority to make the Camino de Santiago and in some routes the sun and the intense heat is assured. These conditions will be more burdensome with the rucksack on your back, glued to the back. And the other side of the coin, the rain, can also make its appearance at any time, especially in Galicia. Although there are plastics to cover the backpacks, if the precipitations are intense it is difficult for the luggage to dry. Inside the Paq Mochila the transfer takes place inside the lodging from where you depart, to the interior of the hostel where you go to spend the night. Dry and in perfect condition, with daily deliveries.
Except for experienced pilgrims and trekkers, there are not many who a priori have at home with an ergonomic backpack, prepared in size and shape to make the Camino de Santiago. It is much more common to have a travel bag at home. CORREOS carries all your luggage, not only backpacks, but also suitcases, with or without wheels. This allows you not to have to buy it on purpose to realize the Jacobean route.
A small bag, type bag, is more than enough to carry on those things that you may need throughout the stage, such as your credential, documentation and some money, sunglasses, cream, bandages and water to hydrate. Your backpack, which CORREOS moves from lodging to accommodation, will include everything that will only be an unnecessary load during the day (why bring a bottle of shampoo, spare boots or the above mentioned books during the stage).
Every pilgrim must know that along the Camino you will find some stretches that will leave you breathless and resent the body. Uphill and downhill, although the previous physical preparation is important, the weight always makes any situation worse. After climbing a mountain, it is a pleasure to enjoy the view without cursing the backpack and all the things that you carry on.
From home, while you prepare your luggage, you can already hire the Paq Mochila from the point of origin that you chose for your Camino to all those accommodations that you have reserved. But for pilgrims who prefer to make plans from one day to another, there is also the possibility to book the day before for the next day. So, if you fall in love with a village and want to stay in it longer, you could change your Route to your needs.
Hiring the Paq Mochila for 5 stages or more, which is the minimum journey that pilgrims usually take, costs only 4 euros per stage. In the case of single stages, 5 euros. For example, being able to make the Portuguese Way from Tui to Santiago, with no backpack on top, for a total of 20 euros, is a very affordable cost for the great benefits it reports, so more and more are those who do not need unnecessary loads. Also for 20 euros you can go weight free from Sarria to Santiago, or from Praza del Obradoiro to Fisterra.
The fatigue, the amount of additions to the backpack and the lack of them, can cause some displeasure to the most forgetful pilgrims. The backpack will be waiting in the hostel and you can sit down to rest on a terrace without having to leave it on the floor, go to the super without worrying about the slogan ... The postmen of CORREOS pick it up and leave it in the place where you go to sleep that day.
Walking light weight and free of worries will allow you to enjoy more fully the Route Jacobea to Santiago de Compostela. Or until the End of the World, since El Camino con CORREOS also transports the backpack on your way to Fisterra and Muxía. You can take the stages more calmly, have more fluency to take the photos you want and feel better physically. You will count with your dry and safe things, CORREOS accompanies you in your Camino.
