Prepare for your hike

Careful planning and knowing what lies ahead makes your hike all the more enjoyable and safer. 650 kilometers are quite the distance, and there might be a few questions on your mind like what do I pack? How do I get there? How do I find my way around? What will I eat? Are there any cultural quirks I need to be aware of?
Those are all excellent questions indeed.
