I’ve just published my new book "SU CAMINO… 20 Days – 785 Kilometers – Camino de Santiago; A Whimsical Mix of Pilgrim Resources and Camino Musings"

"Su Camino…" is now available in eBook (kindle) format on Amazon.

Any and all feedback encouraged and most graciously appreciated!!!

This project, which I describe as: An introspective global journey to awareness and self-discovery catalyzed by 20 summer days walking the Camino de Santiago, “Su Camino…” is one American baby boomer’s travelogue come preparation handbook full of Camino anecdotes and advice for the contemporary walker of “The Way.”

Steeped in travels to the far corners of the world over the last two decades, “Su Camino…” is a layered mélange of: travelogue, full of anecdotes from the trail; musings on my own journey of the spirit, and preparation handbook with numerous resources for any pilgrim, thru-hiker, or adventurer.

Please find and review on Amazon at, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BA0EFBS/?tag=casaivar02-20

Thank you rob. I'll check into it. Should be available wherever, but Amazon does some... interesting things, sometimes.

Thank you Brien.

Rob, go to Amazon Australia and you should be able to get it without a problem.

Seems like it's only available on the US site......
I have found at other times that going into the US link and then changing the .com to .co.uk (for UK) works so you could try amending it to your own normal suffix. Just downloaded successfully that way. Going direct to own country's site doesn't always work at first.

A great book, especially when free! The pace of his camino is breathtaking to someone who likes to amble along at 15 k per day. How can he do 35k and carry camping gear? He was often having lunch in a place where I would be stopping for the night!

We often saw that; people queued up waiting for an albergue to open, while we lunched and considered our afternoon in the heat.
I hope you enjoy the book.

I have just downloaded your book, with some challenges, on my Kindle. Although I am, by preference, more a 15 k a day walker, I look forward to reading your book and getting another person's extensive view of walking the camino.

A great addition to camino books, thank you. I had a problem with my kindle at the very end when the page would not advance. Set a new location, +2, and the rest of the book came up OK, but I have bookmarked both the 'stuck' page and the advanced one - I will check the location numbers and PM you @BrienC (may be tomorrow)

I've read this. I downloaded it and read it before I became a member here. It is very good read. I enjoyed it and will be re-reading parts of it. I love that it's an e-book and I can bookmark and make notes. But it is also very valuable because it is such a current account. Thanks for sharing your adventure. And you, BrienC, are fortunate to have such a great travel companion; you both must be in amazing shape to have accomplished the journey in such a short time!

SusieQ, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. I feel so very grateful that you have enjoyed it and found it useful. In retrospect, I find it interesting that Su Camino... is entertaining as a travelogue, inspirational with life lessons and spirit guides, and useful--especially for someone such as yourself taking to the Camino for the first time.
And, yes, I'm and very lucky to know 'Karla' and to have had so many fine adventures with her. And, that my wife is okay with our friendship.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, again.

Hi Brien, I just finished reading "Su Camino..." and found it an interesting read. It's almost a guidebook for the speedy set :rolleyes:, not only in describing the stages you created for walking an average of 40 km per day, but also for all the "how-tos" in the latter half of the book. While on our Camino, my wife and I met a couple of young guys in Villarmentero who had walked the CF in 21 days the year before and were shooting for less than that this time. At the time, I wondered what it would be like to walk at that pace -- thanks to your book, I now have had my questions answered. Alas, I am a mere mortal, and thus must plod along at half your pace, but overall, it seems like your total experience was not far off from mine.

Ultreia!
Jim

That's awesome, Jim. Thanks you for the feedback! Much appreciated. Last year I did the Via de la Plata, but at a slower pace. 33 days for the 1,000km. Also wrote about it, in a route report format. It's on Amazon too. If you would be so kind, please leave a rating on Amazon. Getting ratings and feedback is so hard. Sorry to beg ;-)
