    This is one of the rare books I have read twice. And with a highlighter for future reference.

    First of all it is actaully well written, Rufin is no amateur author. Also, his insigth on how foot steps affect the brain is interesting and bang on.

    Now, he, like Coelho, goes a little overboard with the wilderness aspect of ot, the turning into a homeless person or just about. Yes he walked the Norte, but even the Norte is glamping.

    "Glamping"...I duly annotated this word. It may come handy, coming to think of it. It seems bang on :) for my next vacations.
    Ah, the infinite variety of languages and idioms. I love them.

    "Glamourous camping". Got to love it. Did it in Africa, with staff getting up early to have boiled water for tea and run out for groceries even if we made up our own tents and helped with cooking. Sleeping in an albergue is utter luxury.
