A man buys a pair of hiking boots and sets off on a journey to Santiago de Compostela on the practically deserted "Camino Primitivo" – the oldest of all the St James pilgrimage routes. Delightfully tongue-in-cheek, Ralf Becker tells us all about painful legs, clammy clothes, nocturnal snoring as well as remote farming villages, primeval landscapes and authentic conversations with his occasional fellow pilgrims.
Read this book online and accompany Becker to the rhythm of his own improvised walking sticks on your own pilgrimage to the moving finale in the cathedral – and have a couple of cafés con leche along the way! ... -primitivo

Oh Sil, you've done it to me again!

I saw your post about the Primitivo, which in the back of my mind is how I want to finish the del Norte, and immediately had to check the link. I scan down a few lines...and there is my name...spelt correctly no less! Just one of those moments when you feel that little something calling you.."this way, turn this way...follow me!"

Thanks so much for another recomendation, I'm nearly done with "Walk in a Relaxed Manner" and will need something else to read...
