One Day I Walk: Reflections along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela 2013-10-11

No permission to download
In One Day I Walk, Anita Jansman shares the story of her spiritual journey across northern Spain on the famed Camino de Santiago de Compostela – one of the world’s most popular pilgrimage routes. Her book invites the reader to walk with her through the mountains, villages, sunshine, mist and rain, as she meets new friends, eats and drinks local fare, dodges snorers, and listens to the silence. While she responds to the history, architecture, culture, and timeless beauty of the Camino, she also makes some important discoveries about herself.

This intimate memoir will intrigue anyone contemplating walking the Camino – or preferring to do so vicariously through Jansman’s warm, often funny, candid, revealing, and sometimes rueful book.

This book offers an excellent overview of the companionship, beauty and thoughtfulness of walking the Camino, through one woman's journey. The "excellence" is entirely attributable to the writer's earthy, conversational and authentic voice. Reading Jansman's book is like meeting a marvellous new walking partner on the Camino itself. You feel blessed.
I received another nice review through email, which I think is worth reporting here:

"I had to e-mail you and tell you that your book, “One Day I Walk” is a wonderful and amazing read. I was actually envisioning that I was walking the camino with you. You made it so real to me. I truly felt the heat, the rain, the aches and other discomforts you endured. The way you integrated and weaved humour, sadness, architectural history, deepest feelings of pain and love into your book of reflections is heart warming. I grew to imagine the sense of personal fulfillment you experienced along the way. Thank you for allowing me to walk with you the easy way!"
