The Soap box and the Sandwich bag

On my second day of walking on the Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrim path to Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in north west Spain, I had some real challenges with my backpack which was very full. The issue was not so much about the weight of the bag which I would be carrying for a distance of 20 to 30 kms a day for the next 20 days of my walk, but rather that it was bursting to capacity, to the point that I felt like the proverbial Christmas tree.
