Over the last few months I’ve found a few helpful and amusing videos on YouTube about tips for the Camino de Santiago. Last week, instead of doing my usual Friday Favorites post, I created a new page that has a selection of these videos embedded into playlists. Check it out: Camino Films and Videos.
I also did something even more ambitious. I created a new YouTube channel and published my first gear review video. Being in front of the camera doesn’t come easy for me as I have always been a shy girl. I’d rather be behind the scenes promoting someone or something else. However, I was inspired by some of these DIY videographers who are sharing Camino knowledge on YouTube in very creative ways:
So, why did I put myself out there and publish a video of me comparing backpacks? I truly want to help other seekers the way these experienced peregrinas have helped me. I am at the early stages of planning my journey and am amazed how there is something new to learn about the Camino every day. I also love to share a good thing, so videos are a natural expansion of this Camino blog. Although this is my first attempt at a review video, I speak from the heart and I know my videos will improve with more experience. Over the next few months I will add videos such as learning to use trekking poles, field test of my new backpack, gear and product reviews. When I’m on the Camino, I’d like to interview people that I meet along the way, and feature some of the many “Camino Providers” that help peregrinos in different capacities.
