My Camino de Santiago Adventure

I had all my clothes except what I was wearing in there. I am guessing it may be
the case for him too. When you backpack you do not want to carry any more than
you must. Soon I should go check again. I am guessing up to 1-1/2 hours. Then ...

After fifty years, I retired in March 2007. I decided to visit my brother in Germany. I did a lot of thinking about how I could visit a country when I didn't understand the customs or speak the language. I did a lot of thinking on this before I left home and even more after I arrived at my brother's I ended up spending a month in Europe and while there I walked a couple hundred miles across Spain. When you are walking alone for a long time you do a lot of thinking. I put a lot of those thoughts in my journal. When I returned home I thought that someone else might enjoy reading my notes. This whole book is from my journal notes as they evolved throughout my trip. I hope you enjoy my story, Marty

Camino de Santiago in 20 Days

Funny, touching, and inspiring! A book about really walking the Camino de Santiago! Perhaps it was the onset of middle-age or just too much diet cola, but in the Spring of 2010, Canadian boy, Randall St. Germain felt called to take on the 800 kilometer, or 500 mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage from St. Jean Pied de Port, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Seriously, what ensued was a dedication to his mother, a personal challenge, and a journey of cultural and historical enlightenment. A million footsteps, and a few pounds of gauze and tape later, he arrived in Santiago de Compostela, with a better understanding of himself - and a newfound familiarity with snoring and flatulent pilgrims! Join St. Germain on his adventure in Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, an irreverently chuckle-inducing look at one man's attempt at the famed walk as he confronts apocalyptic weather, snarling dogs, epic blisters, an exhausted body, and his greatest paranoia in life-bed bugs. Along with his humorous reflections, there is practical insight into how he successfully prepared, packed, and then walked across the entire French Way in 20 days - and in doing so, pushed far beyond his personal comfort zone. Never to be included on the final list of Pulitzer Prize nominees, or in Oprah's Book Club, Camino de Santiago in 20 Days is not your granddaddy's Camino book, either. One word of caution: Pilgrim Discretion is Advised.

From one of Germany’s most beloved celebrities, a cross between Bill Bryson and Paulo Coelho. It has sold over 3 million copies and been translated into eleven different languages. Pilgrims have increased along the Camino by 20 percent since the book was published. Hape Kerkeling’s spiritual epiphany has struck a nerve. Overweight, overworked, and physically unfit, Kerkeling was an unlikely candidate to make the arduous pilgrimage across the French Alps to the Spanish Shrine of St. James, a 1,200-year-old journey undertaken by nearly 100,000 people every year. But that didn’t stop him from getting off the couch and walking. Along the way, lonely and searching for meaning, he began the journal that turned into this utterly frank, engaging book. Simply by struggling with his physical limitations and the rigors of long-distance walking, he discovered a deep sense of peace that transformed his life and allowed him to forgive himself, and others, more readily. He learned something every day, and he took to finishing each entry with his daily lessons. Filled with quirky fellow pilgrims, historic landscapes, and Kerkeling’s self-deprecating sense of humor, I’m Off Then is an inspiring travelogue, a publishing phenomenon, and a spiritual journey unlike any other.

If you are an urbanite who has spent his life locked in four walls, it is logical that now you want to go out into the country. If you work all your life sitting, it is very logical that you want to walk. If you stay in insane and sad offices, you want to breathe clean air. If your days are filled meeting with colleagues and clients, now you want to enjoy solitude. If you must achieve absurd objectives, you want to do something where the end is not a goal. Now you can say goodbye to all that, and alone or accompanied, go to the Camino de Santiago. Buen Camino ! Index 1.

A light hearted read from David's and Sue's versions of the Camino de Santiago in Spain! David is an experienced hiker having walked the Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia, 1000 kilometres in 43 days and Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand, 3000 kilometres in 119 days and more recently the Pacific Crest Trail, 4,200 kilometres in 4 months and 8 days. Life is simple with his backpack full of food, equipment and tent, whereas Sue likes coffees, soft beds and showers. This was a compromise to walk at least once together on their six month backpacking trip around Europe.Walking 800 kilometres in seven weeks, approximately twenty kilometres a day was a challenge for both. David usually walks forty kilometres a day with a personal best of sixty kilometres in a day, so he had to slow down! For Sue this was just a challenge! However with lots of cafes and a hot shower and soft bed at the end of each day to look forward to, it was a great way to spend time in each other's company.David has gone back to packing his tent and continuing to walk the list of walks he wants to accomplish. While Sue is happy to wait at home and edit his journals. When he hikes overseas she will follow him in a train, bus, cruise or just do her own thing. With a husband and wife version of walking the Camino they are different in retelling their stories.Sit back with a coffee or beer and enjoy the read.

Travel essay and the list of albergue (pilgrim hostel)***The Camino de Santiago (Latin: Peregrinatio Compostellana, "Pilgrimage of Compostela"; Galician: O Camiño de Santiago), known in English as the Way of Saint James among other names, is a network of pilgrims' ways or pilgrimages leading to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. It is also popular with hiking and cycling enthusiasts and organized tour groups.The French Way (Camino Francés) and the Routes of Northern Spain are the courses listed in the World Heritage List by UNESCO.*From prologue Exactly ten years ago, on summer days, I was walking in the Tibetan Himalayas. I walked with a very painful headache in altitude sickness, and I walked on the muddy trails chitchatting with my Chinese friends in the mountain rain. I remember that one day I ran out of a car and ran away without any direction surprised by the unforgettable scenery of a lake and mountains reflected by the sunset glow. It's ten years ago that I was moved to tears by the impression of Dalai Buddhists who walked hundreds to thousands of kilometers from the door of their house to the Tibetan capital, Lhasa. And ten years later this summer, I was walking to Santiago de Compostela on two clay feet for over 30 days.It's from Martin Sheen's movie, "The way" that I first heard about "Camino de Santiago" or "Santiago Pilgrimage" (also known as "Camino"). The movie was based on the story on the pilgrimage route that he walked in grief on behalf of his son who passed away during the Camino trip. I stopped watching it in the middle of the movie because I was so sad in some scenes. I kept it in my mind to go there someday and Camino had been asleep in the corner of my memory for long. When I talk to people about Camino, they say they want to walk this route at least once in their life. Christian believers think it'll be a lifelong wish and non-Christian people will want it to experience that journey as a way of learning or a way to enlightenment. A lot of people want to walk, but actual statistics say that only about 200,000 people a year realize their dream. The ratio is increasing in recent years. [Index]PrologueGeneral informationDay 0.

"If you know how much I love you, you'd cry of joy."Exactly ten years ago, on a summer day, I was walking through the Tibetan Himalayas. I walked with a very painful headache from altitude sickness, along the muddy trails, chitchatting with my Chinese friends in the mountain rain. I remember one day I took off in a car and sped without any direction, suddenly surprised by the unforgettable scenery of a lake and mountains, reflected by the glow of sunset. It was ten years ago that I was touched to tears by the impression of Dalai Buddhists, who walked hundreds and thousands of kilometers from the door of their house to the Tibetan capital, Lhasa. And ten years later this summer, I am walking to Santiago de Compostela on two clay shoes and it has been over 30 days so far."We have to be brave to say hello and also to say goodbye."This is one of the things that I learned from Camino de Santiago: because we were heading to the same destination, we could become friends in the same boat. But as time went, we slowly recognized that one day we should say goodbye and go our own way after the pilgrimage. It was difficult to say goodbye to really good friends.This is a travel essay and photo gallery traveled through French way (Camino Francés) of camino de santiago, also in the names of Peregrinatio Compostellana, Pilgrimage of Compostela, O Camiño de Santiago leading from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain.

"In order to regain her spiritual footing, Sonia turned to the age-old practice of pilgrimage and set out to walk the legendary Camino de Santiago, an 800-kilometer (500-mile) trek over the Pyrenees and across northern Spain. Day after day she pushed through hunger, exhaustion, and pain to reach her destination. Eventually, mortification of the flesh gave way to spiritual renewal, and she rediscovered the gifts of humility and forgiveness that she needed to repair her world."--Publisher.

"We have to be brave to say hello and also to say goodbye." This is one of the things that I learned from Camino de Santiago: because we were heading to the same destination, we could become friends in the same boat.

"If you know how much I love you, you'd cry of joy."Exactly ten years ago, on a summer day, I was walking through the Tibetan Himalayas. I walked with a very painful headache from altitude sickness, along the muddy trails, chitchatting with my Chinese friends in the mountain rain. I remember one day I took off in a car and sped without any direction, suddenly surprised by the unforgettable scenery of a lake and mountains, reflected by the glow of sunset. It was ten years ago that I was touched to tears by the impression of Dalai Buddhists, who walked hundreds and thousands of kilometers from the door of their house to the Tibetan capital, Lhasa. And ten years later this summer, I am walking to Santiago de Compostela on two clay shoes and it has been over 30 days so far."We have to be brave to say hello and also to say goodbye."This is one of the things that I learned from Camino de Santiago: because we were heading to the same destination, we could become friends in the same boat. But as time went, we slowly recognized that one day we should say goodbye and go our own way after the pilgrimage. It was difficult to say goodbye to really good friends.This is a travel essay and photo gallery traveled through French way (Camino Francés) of camino de santiago, also in the names of Peregrinatio Compostellana, Pilgrimage of Compostela, O Camiño de Santiago leading from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain.
