Publisher's Summary

Planning to walk a Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain? This is the book for you. This audiobook is a collection of tips to help you plan, prepare, train, shop for, and walk the famous Camino de Santiago, written by someone who spent seven weeks walking the Via de La Plata route of the Camino de Santiago. 

You’ll learn what gear you’ll need, how to choose the right boots, and how to break them in properly. You’ll discover the best ways to condition yourself to walk the Camino de Santiago. You’ll discover what to wear on the plane and what to have in your pockets when you arrive in Spain. You’ll be ready for a “typical” day on the Camino and you’ll also be prepared for some of the changes that are coming your way, too.

Unnecessary insertion of Gayness in a useful guide

Why is the author compelled to insert his sexuality in a book of tips?

If it was a Gay guide to the Camino, fine, he is what he is, BUT this is about equipment. technique, planning, strategy etc.

His husband this, and his husband that, adds *absolutely nothing* to the publication.

If I had read in the credits after all the good advice that the author was gay, I would have thought "Cool, this guy is really brave" Instead they try to *force* straight people to accept that homosexuality is absolutely mainstream by inserting it in material where it's totally irrelevant.

I'm honestly not anti-gay, but it did ruin the book for me.

Concise, Well-Lived and Well-Explained Tips!

It seems unfair to rate this book for "story," as it is a list of 50 tips, but Gregory did a nice job of narrating his experiences along "the way." I have listened to many podcasts on the Camino, read many Facebook posts and forums, and attended American Pilgrim talks and this book sums them all up nicely!

Great tips.

Thank you very much for the useful tips on Walking the Camino. I hope to walk the Camino one day but will use the information on local hikes until then.

Disappointing "Tips"

This book is thin on real tips and insights, and should be titled a "lazy persons guide to prepping for the CAMINO" . There's such basic information in here, like one whole tip dedicated just to getting an international plug. It's written from the perspective of someone who has lived in a bubble in the US. I found much richer information doing my own online research than listening to this book. At 1hr12 minute duration its a Disappointing use of my credits.

it's a lost

Useful list of what to take on the camino, mostly geared to Americans who may not have been to Europe before. Some brief insights into what to expect while walking it too.
