Publisher's summary

A man at a crossroads. A thousand-mile hike. A life forever changed.

Keith Foskett was the definition of restless. Drifting aimlessly, he knew a piece was missing from his life. But when a stranger in a Greek bar tells him about a world-famous pilgrim’s trail, the chance encounter sets Foskett’s life in a new 1,000-mile direction.

On El Camino de Santiago, the wanderer copes with extreme temperatures, fake faith healers, and insatiable kleptomaniacs. Threatened with arrest for "not sleeping" and suffering with excruciating blisters, Foskett pushes himself to new limits. Can he find what he’s looking for and make it to the other side?

Keith Foskett’s travelogues have been short-listed for Outdoor Book of the Year multiple times by The Great Outdoors magazine. Awash with vivid descriptions and a cast of engaging real-life characters, the author delivers a humorous and mesmerizing tale of adventure and metamorphosis. 

The Journey in Between is a daring travel memoir. If you like indulging your inner adventurer, taking the less popular fork in the road, and visiting foreign locations, then you’ll love Keith Foskett’s transformative tale.

Pick up The Journey in Between to take your first step today.

This book will make you mad

If you have ever walked the Camino or are trying to plan a trip to walk the Camino, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK, especially as a guide to how you should behave. So much wonton disregard for Camino history and tradition. you sir are a thru hiker and that's fine but don't go on Camino and COMPLAIN the whole way about how its not made for hikers or it should change for you. Disgusted by your attitude!

This guy is a dramatic whiner

Don’t waste your time if you’re looking for an inspiring Camino pilgrimage. He whines and complains much of the way and makes it very well known that God is not a part of his life. I feel sad for him.

I can’t think of one situation or location that stood out to me during the entire book. It was not engaging.

Pass on it.

Zero Self-Awareness

Wow, I learned almost nothing at all about walking the Camino. I did learn a lot about how I plan to NEVER behave. Initially, I thought the author was being humorous. But as you continue (and I stuck with it to the bitter end), you realize you're dealing with the most inconsiderate, un-self-aware person imaginable.

He is appalled -- appalled, I tell you -- that low-cost accommodations created expressly for pilgrims on a spiritual journey are unwilling to adapt to his schedule of late-night bar hopping. The low point is when someone in a salon cuts his hair and says, "No charge for pilgrims" and he walks off without tipping her.

I have no idea how this has 5-star reviews.

Great read!

I so enjoyed this walk on the Camino with fozzy. listened to it on trips back and forth to care for my aging parents. it passed the miles and the time with ease and left me feeling lifted, though I didn't walk the Camino myself. it's clean, it's fun, it's upbeat; you feel the pain and the joys that he experiences. It makes me want to walk the Camino as well. Bice job Fozzy! Thanks for sharing your adventure, the relationships you found, and, I enjoyed hearing about what came after as that is always part of the Walk. Glad to hear you're going to write another book about one of my own dreams, the PCT. Love the reader as wel,l he was great at differentiating the characters and keeping the pace of the Walk.

Not for Grownups

I have a difficult time relating to adult males who still live with their mommies. They tend to come from a deeply different perspective than most other functioning adults do. I wish I would have known that upfront; and I would have passed.

Loved from start to finish

This book captivated me and was one of those rare books that I didn’t want to end. Fossey made it feel like I was there with him. The narrator could not have been better.

Nice hiking adventure book...

I enjoy giving stories and would one like to participate in "the way" known as the El Camino. This was a nice sharing of the journey for one pilgrim....
