Daily Stamps
Among my favs: Casa de Austria, Felisa, Eunate. I usually only stamped them at albergues. People recommended getting them stamped more often when heading out to Finisterre and Muxía.

Edurne's credencial
Edurne's credencial
Many people wore their credencial like this where it would be handy. Note, wooden staffs like Tillman's were popular. I preferred collapsible that mostly stayed on my back unless there was mud or I was going down steep hills. Then they were lifesavers.

My airplane cup.
My airplane cup.
Very light, fit easily in my pocket. Even though I (wisely) had a hydration pack, I liked to drink the cool water from the fountains we passed. Felt like a communication with my hosts.

I would usually pull book out to see where I was going each morning. It had maps of most cities which was useful because when lost, and it gave you an idea of where you needed to go.

Sleep sacs
Sleep sacs
For sleeping I carried a very light fleece sac, and silk sleep-sac sheet with attached pillowcase. Loved it. Albergues had pillows, and sometimes extra blankets. I was never cold. Never extra blankets in Galicia municipal albergues but the heat of the other bodies in the room made it toasty!
