    Am I the only one who...

    It's a really interesting point. I think anyone who has walked the Camino could write a book about it, and one in a hundred might rise above the generally haphazard standard of personal travelogue and crossover into the mainstream. How that ever happens is anyone's guess - like figuring out...

    Forum Book Club - Getting started, with book nominations

    Hape is definitely an inspiration for German peregrinos - every single one I walked with had read his book, or heard about the Camino because of him. However, like Coelho, there does seem to be some doubt over how much of the route he actually walked!

    I hope that it gave you just enough of an idea of what remains of the Way, without revealing too much! Perhaps the albergue reviews will help you choose where to stay too!

    Crikey. Kindle tells me that 495 people have taken advantage of the free download of my Camino book over the last three days, so if you're one of them, I hope you enjoy reading it. It's an easy read and there are lots of photos! If you do enjoy it, please leave me a review on Amazon...

    That's wonderful. Thanks! When I published the book, I made donations to the albergues I had stayed in which had been listed by Ivar here. The royalties are tiny, but every little helps!

    Go Your Own Way - Free Download

    As I'm basking in the warm glow of another viewing of "The Way" last night - the cinematic equivalent of a long hug from an old friend - I'm making my Camino book a free download from Amazon's Kindle site for a couple of days. If you'd like a literal wallow in a first-timer's Frances, feel...

    Thanks Paul! I did the same thing for my Camino book a couple of months ago. I'll look forward to comparing notes!

    Go Your Own Way: Following in the footsteps of Martin Sheen on the Way of St James

    Actually, I'm going to make the book available free of charge for a short period, starting tomorrow morning. With the permission of the moderators, I'll post a link to that on Friday morning. Something to say ”thank you” to everyone on here for their guidance and support in the past.

    Go Your Own Way: Following in the footsteps of Martin Sheen on the Way of St James

    I was most definitely inspired to walk by “The Way”, as I set out in the opening chapters. At that point, I assumed I’d see all of the filming locations along the route - I know better now, of course! I did meet Dan, who ran a refreshment stall between Zubiri and Pamplona, who was very proud...

    Go Your Own Way: Following in the footsteps of Martin Sheen on the Way of St James

    Hello all Back in the autumn of 2018, in those happy days when we were all still allowed outside, I walked the Camino Francés and wrote a blog about it every day, for five extraordinary and memorable weeks. I posted links here, which seemed to be quite popular at the time. Given all the extra...
