Informazioni sul libro
The author presents a captivating account of the Camino de Santiago where his storytelling, photography, sense of adventure and historical curiosity bring the Camino to life. Fascinated by its medieval towns and generous landscapes, John Gardner has walked its 900 km several times in pursuit of the history, stories, people and architectural treasures he would meet day after day. A Pilgrim’s Journey talks of the beauty of the Way and brings to light the history of its path. It is a most personal account of time spent walking with family and friends, of encounters with other pilgrims, of developing friendships and of bonding with communities through which one passes. These pages house indelible memories generated by sharing time with one of Europe’s greatest historical traditions. This narrative is not intended to serve as a travel guide measuring distances to be travelled or locating accommodation for the night but rather as inspiration for those who might walk its course one day. If you weren’t already planning your trip, you will be by the end of this read!
