What to bring:
One suitcase and one carry on
bag. Pack your most essential items in the carry
on, including a change of underclothes in case
the arrival of your suitcase gets delayed. Make
a copy of your passport and always keep it in
a different place than your passport.
Money: travelers checks, credit
cards, and cash all work. Sometimes youll
be on your own for lunch or dinner. Therell
also be tips, souvenirs, etc. to pay for. 200
500.- dollars should be plenty.
A day pack for carrying water, etc.
Dont bring more than you can carry
comfortably. Its better to bring too little
clothes than too many. Bring a tube or a zip
lock bag of laundry detergent. Its easy
enough to wash something out in the sink.
Ear plugs for sleeping at night and meditating
in churches filled with tourists.
Comfortable walking shoes with traction
that are already broken in.
Temperatures should be in the 50s
at night; and high 60s to mid 80s
during the day (degrees in Fahrenheit). Humidity
should be low, but it might rain, so bring a
little fold up umbrella or raincoat.
They dont like to see tank tops
or shorts in churches or on sacred mountains
in Europe. If you wear sleeveless shirts, bring
a shawl to cover your shoulders. The Vatican
wont allow access to anybody who doesnt
wear a long skirt or long pants.
Sun protection, i.e. hat, sun screen,
etc. and insect repellent. European houses generally
do not have screen doors or windows.
Adapter/converter for electrical accessories
like razors, etc.
Pocket knifes are good, but remember
that even the smallest one will be confiscated
if you try to carry it onto the passenger compartment
of the plane. The same is true for nail files,
scissors, anything half way sharp. So pack all
that stuff in the suitcase.

It is good to prepare spiritually for
a pilgrimage by spending some quiet time in
prayer and meditation once or better twice a
day. Pray that your heart and mind will be opened,
so that you can receive all that your Higher
Power (however you call it) has to offer you
before, during, and after this pilgrimage.
