  • A charged phone and 4G
  • Take some water. Lots of water !
  • Avoid walking in the middle of the afternoon
  • Avoid hikes from June to September… The sun is too strong! Rather prefer the beaches
  • Wear wide pants, not shorts! The bushes are often very thorny…
  • Of course, respect the properties, the herds, the shepherds. A hello, a pack of biscuits, a few minutes to chat with the inhabitants, these will always be good memories, and human warmth for people who live in often difficult conditions.
