Peaceable Projects Inc. is a U.S.-based non-profit group that brings the vast resources of the wide world together with the ongoing needs of the people who live, work, and travel on the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail network in Spain.
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...
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.

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.

Something to say ”thank you” to everyone on here for their guidance and support in the past.
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...
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.
