I wasn’t looking for answers, indeed I didn’t have any questions, but a conversation with a stranger in a Greek bar inadvertantly steered me down one turn of a crossroads and took my life in a whole different direction.

El Camino is the fabled path that weaves through French and Spanish countryside for 1,000 miles to its hallowed destination at Santiago de Compostella. Hundreds attempt to walk its entirety each year: some succeed, many fail. The author walked the Camino to indulge his love for the outdoors and the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other – day after exhilarating day. Along the way he made friends with fellow pilgrims from all over the world, all travelling for their own different reasons. He was assailed by new experiences and unexpected discoveries – from the pain of blisters and extremes of temperature to encountering kleptomaniacs and fake faith healers and being threatened with arrest in Spain for ‘not sleeping’. This is the story of one man’s walk, but it speaks to all who see life itself as a journey and are alive to the revelations that an escape to nature can bring. As this book shows, it is rarely the start and the finish that count, but the journey in between.The story of a walk which changed my life.

“A thoroughly entertaining modern take on a well worn Spanish Trail.”
– Spencer Vignes (The Observer)
“Not only does he have astute observations about the people, places and scenery around him, he is adept at translating those observations into words, often making me laugh or nod in understanding. This is a rare talent. Few authors can bring you to this level of understanding of life on the trail.”
– Teresa Dicentra Black (Author – ‘One Pan Wonders’)
“An engaging, vivid and very personal account by a likeable author of a journey and an achievement that readers will find both enviable and inspiring.”
Ingrid Cranfield (Author – ‘At Last Michael Reeves’)
“It made me laugh out loud hard.”
– Erik Asorson (Author – ‘PCT Atlas’)
