I almost didn't read this one,* but it turned out to be a good thing I did -- one of the better Camino memoirs I've read to date. Ward's walk across Spain in 2004, which he covers in this book, was not his first: he had done the Camino four times previously, so he already had a trove of stories to draw on, and he was able to look back and compare his 2004 experiences (and goals) with earlier ones.Ward managed to do something that surprised me: This was, I think, the seventeenth book I've read ab [...]
Ok book. We are doing the last 120 km. In September, so I'm reading several "Camino" books in preparation. There seems to be a snobbishness from the "pilgrims" who complete the entire Camino towards those that 'only' do the final 120. I feel almost apologetic but need to realize each person's Camino is their own.
Not a bad book, but don't mistake it for a travelogue. A narrative of one man's experience in walking the Camino. The author intersperses talked of his current journey with previous experiences along the Camino and at times, because of the number of characters he refers to, it can be difficult to follow if he is talking about a recollection or an experience on his current journey.
Maybe I will be able to comment on how accurate the descriptions are AFTER I walk the Camino myself next April, but for now it was inspiring and reaffirmed for me that this is something I need to do.
as i am going to do the camino this fall - i am reading books on the camino - and this would fall into that category. As soon as I can find another one at the library - I will be reading it as well.
One writers adventures as a pilgrim.
gives you a feeling of the pilgrims you will meet and what the spririt of doing the road to Santiago maybe should be.
Love love this book. Again another walking book, this one set along the Camino de Santiago. I really got a feel for the journey from the author. I will seek out his other books to enjoy.
I read this during Holy Week and am now trying to persuade someone in my family to do the camino with me!
good informative read not bad at all
