- Time of past OR future Camino
I really want to take the Gitlitz/Davidson Cultural Handbook with me on the CF this June; but it is a big book. Has anyone taken it with them, and did it augment/expand the experience?
I have downloaded it on my iPad mini, which I take with me, so it is an easy reference and a great resource.I really want to take the Gitlitz/Davidson Cultural Handbook with me on the CF this June; but it is a big book. Has anyone taken it with them, and did it augment/expand the experience?
Thanks all; I'm going to have to swallow my pride and dig out my first generation Kindle. I'm old, and I will always prefer a physical book, but I have to see sense while on the Camino, and reduce the load!:
It has something for everyone. Being from the Bronx and being really in touch with nature and plants. I do like to look at them but I skipped the Floral and Fauna sections when I read it. The history parts are really great I think. But there is definitely something for all pilgrims.
I think this is good advice. I have come to prefer to use the kindle app on my smart phone instead of a kindle device. I even use my phone to read books when I'm at home. I find it very comfortable to read, especially in bed.@philleethomas I assume you will take a smartphone - for checking in with QR codes as we seem to need to do on International flights, even if nothing else. There is a kindle app for iPhones and androids, which would save you having to take a Kindle as well. I too am the proud owner of a first generation Kindle that is still serving me well! But for simplicity I only take the smartphone on camino.
The advantage of having the book with me (in electronic format) is that it allowed me to stand in front of something being described, and understand exactly what I was seeing. I found it transformative.
Yes I have the book but this might be another one to download for the Kindle!
