Hiking

The feet

The feet are the most important thing for the hiker. You realize that when you buy shoes and practice for the Camino, but the real importance only gets through to you when you walk the Camino. You are going to feel them in ways you didn’t know you could. You will develop rituals to protect the feet like:

  •  Taking off your shoes and socks immediately after walking
  • Washing and drying your feet after a hike
  • Rub your feet with petroleum jelly to keep them supple
  • Feet up after a hike
  • Rub your feet with Vaseline in the morning against blisters.

You will be in awe of those feet that are having a hard time during such a hike. Your feet become such a Saint that you treat them with a lot of care. They determine the rhythm and the length of your path. Unfortunately you forget that after a while when you are not hiking so often anymore and they become holy off those feet.
