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.

Another goodie!

I read his book about his PCT hike. This one was just as entertaining and vivid with characters. Moved very quickly. Lot’s of laugh out loud moments as I listened on Audible. Have recommended to all of my hiking friends. .

Inspiring and freeing

I think all of us have a certain amount of wanderlust running through our veins, that being said not all can drop what we're doing and fulfill that. I love these kind of books as I can walk along the trail with Mr. Foskett and in so doing live a little of my dreams to partake in these kind of adventures

Really enjoyed this book

I read Keith’s book “The last Englishman” about hiking the PCT and was miserable when I finished it, as I had so enjoyed the way he wrote. To my delight, I then saw and immediately bought The
journey in Between and it’s a great read. It does help that I walked 220km of the Camino a few years ago, and it brought back all the great memories. I’ve just bought High & Low and would like to know when the audio version of Balancing on Blue will be available?

it's easy to get lost in the journey with Keith

Keith offers a fascinating retelling of his adventures and those he met on the way. Friends made, experiences had, places found on the way all compounded into deep remembrances, not of the distance walked but the journey between the steps.

Totally the wrong person to read this book!

Such a great story but totally ruined by having the wrong style of narrator - it’s like having a public school boy practice his diction. I had to check it was actually a person and not a computer-generated voice - such a shame, it’s putting me off finishing it
