I am in the town of Najera in the province of La Rioja. I have just completed the first quarter of my walk along the Camino de Santiago (200 km).
So many of you have expressed enthusiasm, interest and curiosity about the Camino, some asking me to write more…. Well, I will write from time to time, but in the meantime, I have a suggestion.
Go slake your Camino-thirst by treating yourself to “The Art of Walking: An Illustrated Journey on the Camino de Santiago” by Kari Gale.
These reflections are artistically satisfying and are true food for the soul. Kari’s words helped me to prepare my own journey on the Camino.
“In the spring of 2013, Kari Gale walked the Camino de Santiago. During the 500 mile journey, she documented each day in her journal with ink and paints, resulting in over forty watercolor illustrations. The simple prose and sketches found in The Art of Walking provide an intimate perspective that captures the sweeping landscape of Spain, the beauty of ordinary moments, and the profound simplicity and delight of walking.”
