Publisher's Summary

Sometimes you have to jump.

After researching through blogs, books and YouTube, Rebecca grabs a pack to join one. Initially, the author sought to write this book for those who would not be able to walk, describing the terrain and the villages, but what starts out like a guided tour, quickly turns into an adventure, as walking alone often does.

Hear about how the Camino changes a light-hearted traveler into a soul searching pilgrim. Neverlost4good does get lost, often misplacing her poles and pack while learning how to manage the trail. Every story from the Camino de Santiago is different, because it is never the same walk for anyone. This book includes photos from the trail, interesting alternatives in completing the journey and humorous situations. Enjoy the book, and don't be surprised to find yourself looking into traveling to Spain yourself one day.

Warning: this walk will change your life!

Nothing here. Don't waste your money.

This book is not worth the $1.99 discount price I paid for it. The author provides zero insight into her life or experience in what is supposed to be a memoir. It's simply a series of short trivial stories about her challenges in sending her backpack by car each day, instead of carrying it, the annoying people she met on the way, and other trivial negativities.

She provides no real information about who she is and how she came to decide to spend this time walking across Spain by herself. We learn almost nothing about any people she met along the way. There is no element of personal growth. She's little more than an anonymous narrator sounding like a spoiled, sheltered, pampered princess with little curiosity about herself or the world around her.

To make it worse, while I'm not a fluent Spanish speaker, I do know that many of the place names were mispronounced.

Fear Leads to Insight

For much of this book, it felt hesitant and fearful and rushed. However, it WAS the story of one person's journey......That was what I was looking for when I purchased this book.
In the end, especially in light of the fear, I really appreciated the honest insights shared. I hope the author does the Camino again and shares the different experience I suspect she will have. I will look for and buy her new book:)!

I shall walk someday!

Rebecca's story was filled with great tips, exposed emotions, and a curiosity with a purpose. We all long for the same things and funny how food, wine and walking being you to your happy place. Her voice during the story is peaceful and powerful. I truly enjoyed her story.

A good story of the Camino de Santiago

A simple, quite interesting story of a woman’s journey along the Camino de Santiago. A modern-day pilgrim’s journey, it was simple, entertaining and well paced.

I’d recommend it if you are thinking of doing this journey. It gives a day-to-day account of life on the road - the pleasures and pitfalls. It’s a spiritual journey and for each person it is different.

I’m glad the author read it as it gave me a better sense of her experience.

It’s worth reading.
