Most people have a huge party for their 60th birthday, but not me….I chose to walk across Spain on the Camino de Santiago. I have written the book that I wish I had BEFORE I went, and I hope this will inspire you to put on some boots, load up a backpack, and follow the Camino path.
This walk changed my life in so many ways and the first part of my book is about that transformation, my experience. It is not a diary like most other Camino books, but an introspective look at what happens to your mind and body when walking long distance. The Camino provides plenty of headspace and time to consider various aspects of your life, your relationships and your purpose. I write about the smells, the sounds, the sights, the people and the places, rather than tell a day by day account.
The second part of my book is the result of questions asked at various talks that I have done Australia wide. It answers questions such as “can I get lost?”, “how do I know what to take?”, ‘how much does it cost?”, what is the accommodation like?”, “is it safe to do on my own?”
Please note that $1.00 from the sale of each book will be donated to the Motor Neurone Society (Victoria).
