Behind the Albergue Door : Inspiration Agony Adventure on the Camino de Santiago is a detailed and, according to the author’s mom, hilarious account of the 5 weeks in the fall of 2012 that he and his wife spent on the Camino Frances lancing blisters, sharing dorm rooms with exhausted snorers, and bathrooms with enthusiastic wine drinkers. The camaraderie, the sense of community and the satisfaction that accompanied each day’s debilitating fatigue made the whole experience fascinating, excruciating, inspirational and interminable all at the same time - they are already making plans to tackle it again.
Behind the Albergue Door mixes stories, advice and humour in a way unique among Camino books and is a terrific read for past pilgrims, future pilgrims, travel buffs, and those who simply enjoy reading about other people’s suffering.
