Playing sports as a couple has become common during these times. Before starting the Camino, you can practice together, and prepare your body and mind for the journey.
We suggest you walk through mountain áreas using the shoes that will take you to the trip. You can also run a few kilometers or measure your resistance doing another type of sport.
Preparing the backpack does not have to be a problem, on the contrary, it is part of the experience, and you should try to do it in the best way. Surely it will be fun if you do it together!
You can carry with you the backpack with the approximate weight that you think to carry, remember to pack it in an orderly manner, placing the heaviest items down and stuck to your back.
If you want to walk without luggage, remember that you do not have to worry, you can enjoy the natural air and an incredible view without having to take it;
AN EXPERIENCE THAT ENRICHES LOVE
In most cases, the people who have done the Camino discover something about themselves and their relationship with nature, which leaves them completely fascinated. When it comes to a couple, in many cases the relationship comes out stronger, freer and more conscious.
One of the things that you must keep in mind if you want to do the Camino de Santiago as a couple, is that it is usual that even if we start the Camino in a group we will want to have some moments for ourselves.
If this happens, do not take any of the parties as an offense! Respecting the other’s space is always fundamental, but in the Camino it is even more so.
Considering that the Camino has something that impels us to look at ourselves, to evaluate us in some way, it invites us to meditate; this is why many people want to spend some time with themselves even if they do not do the Camino alone.
Undoubtedly these experiences of the Way will make us grow as people, and as a couple.
