Once the domain of penitent pilgrims these days the Camino attracts ‘pilgrims’ for a diversity of reasons, some spiritual and others more worldly, e.g. to experience a different culture, to sort out personal problems, to escape the rat race, to embark on an adventure, to get fit. Whatever your reason for walking, Trish Clark’s latest book is an invaluable guide to walking the Camino YOUR way. Guide to the Camino draws on her own personal experience of following the 850 kilometre Camino Frances from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain.The book covers preparation for walking the Camino and includes a step by step guide to each day on the trail. Distances, maps, photos, local history, legends, fiestas and fairs, eating and drinking, things to see and do and the time of the pilgrims’ Mass in each overnight location are covered. It offers details of more comfortable accommodation than the usual multibunk bed, dormitory-like albergues, and lists accommodation in hotels, hostels and pensións including those run by monks, nuns and religious orders. A day-to-day ‘flashback’ recalls the author’s own experience of walking the Camino.This easy to use, guide is the perfect travelling companion for those planning to walk the Camino and enlightening armchair reading for those contemplating it.
