Buen Camino, pilgrims. This episode has *so much* of the emotion we all associate with the Camino. I hope you love Claude's story!

Her 30-year marriage ended, Australian author Claude Tranchant ("Boots to Bliss", "Boots to Freedom") left her home at age 64 to walk 100 days along the Camino de Santiago. Lost and alone in a foreign land, Claude shares her inspiring story of overcoming pain and finding strength through pilgrimage. For topic notes and links to discussions, please read the show notes online.

The Sacred Steps Podcast walks virtually alongside authors and pilgrims, connecting a community of pilgrims from across the globe. From the Camino de Santiago through Spain to the Via Francigena across Europe to Italy, the podcast features updates and first-hand accounts from the footpaths of pilgrimage. A companion to the book Sacred Steps: A Pilgrimage Journal by Kevin Donahue, the podcast also introduces several lesser-known journeys, such as England’s Pilgrims’ Way to Canterbury and the California Missions Trail in the United States.
